The study center has cooperative links with a number of leading institutions including The British Institute, Palazzo Strozzi Foundation, and the University of Florence. . Each participant’s first semester begins with a one-week orientation in Marina di Pietrasanta for the Fall Semester or in Rome for the Spring Semester. During this week students will receive information about life in Italy, academic matters and social activities. This is followed by eleven weeks of study in Florence. With the exception of Italian language, all courses are taught in English.
In Florence, students live in Italian homes or in student apartments which are carefully screened and supervised. Special rates have also been negotiated for dinner at a number of excellent Florentine restaurants, and at some cafes for breakfast. Dinner and breakfast vouchers (Mon-Fri) are included in the cost of the programme.
