My experience studying abroad in Florence is something I will never forget. I always knew that I wanted to study abroad in college and I knew that SAI was the best program. They offered the most classes for my major (Journalism) and since they partner
with my home university I knew my credits would transfer easily. SAI provided me with endless resources before and after I arrived in Florence. An admissions counselor frequently reached out with deadlines and when I arrived someone was waiting at the airport ready to take me to my apartment. SAI lets you be as involved as you want so you can attend their events and trips or you can plan your own. I would definitely recommend studying abroad with SAI Programs.read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Studying abroad with SAI at FUA this summer was the most rewarding experience! I was able to take interesting classes that taught me about Italian culture, which was so unique to learn about while I was there. I learned so much both in and out of the
classroom, and I so grateful that I chose SAI. SAI provided me with amazing housing and great resources, and also took me on lots of excursions that were life changing. SAI really made Florence feel like home for me and gave me the best 6 weeks of my life!read moreBottom Line:Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
