Say hello to the mamas
When the Four Mamas founded API together more than 20 years ago, they dreamed of creating high-quality, safe, life-changing study abroad programs they would feel good sending their own kids on. With dedication, hard work, and a lot of love, their dream became reality. Thousands and thousands of students have chosen API to support them on their own life-changing study abroad experiences, with the Four Mamas cheering them on every step of the way. No matter who you are or where you come from, API will support you on your journey.

The capital of Italy, Rome has always been a cultural and political stronghold and crossroads for people from across the globe. The glorious history of the eternal city can be seen in the form of artwork, exquisite monuments, museums, churches and architecture. One of the grandest sites in Rome is the great Colosseum, which remains an architectural feat in the eyes of modern engineers and has recently been named one of the “Seven Wonders of the Modern World.” The Sistine Chapel, St. Peter’s Square and the Basilica of St. Peter are ever-present reminders of the Catholic Church’s historical and religious influence. Rome is also full of picturesque piazzas and famous fountains. Here, Romans and visitors alike can step out of the hustle and bustle of modern Rome and enjoy people-watching over a café. For those looking to study in a cosmopolitan city rich with history, art, architecture and diverse people from around the globe, Rome beckons!
API students have two choices for study abroad in Rome:
Founded in 1972, John Cabot University is an independent, four-year, U.S.-accredited liberal arts university located in Rome. Centrally located in the quaint Trastevere neighborhood, JCU is a only short walk away from the Tiber River and many of Rome’s most historic sites. The school is named after the Italian navigator, Giovanni Caboto, or John Cabot, whose exploration helped to open relations between Italy, England, and North America.
At the American University of Rome, students are offered the comforts of a home away from home at the oldest American degree-granting institution in the city. Since 1969, this university has provided an American liberal arts education to students from all over the world who seek a unique and extraordinary educational experience.

“Overall, this was the best experience I ever had. There were ups and downs and through those, I learned a lot about myself and my abilities to handle change and difficulties outside of my comfort zone. I think studying abroad or going abroad to do anything (work, study, travel) is really important for everyone. I gained a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world and other cultures."
API students in Rome have the opportunity to give back to their local community through various volunteer projects, including helping out at a cat sanctuary, serving food to homeless communities, clothing donations, teaching English to disadvantaged women, a charity fun run, and city beautification projects.
