ITALY 2014 / 2015


Letter from the President Dear Students, Parents and Colleagues, I still vividly recall the first time I landed in a foreign country as a young person. My senses felt overloaded; everything was utterly different. And my world changed. The impact of study abroad on a young person’s life is immeasurable. Years later, while living in Italy with my family for 8 years and working in the field of international education, it was part of my job to know the college study opportunities available in Europe to English speaking students. I also learned to determine the truly exceptional schools; ones that would be an outstanding experience for any student. Back then my work was with secondary students; high school students living abroad and choosing a college soon. Once my family and I returned to the U.S. my interest in education abroad focused on options for college students and it was evident that opportunities were limited and difficult to reach. As a result, in 1995, I began to build SAI, with the goal of making it possible for all students to experience study abroad; especially at these exceptional schools I’d come to know. For 18 years now SAI Programs’ hands-on approach has enabled us to serve our students with the finest study abroad programs in Europe. SAI students understand that SAI Programs is an organization known for providing programs and services of distinguishing quality and always with a personal touch. As President, I am committed to maintaining SAI Programs as a small, personalized organization with staff who care for students and respond to their academic interests, cultural curiosities and career goals. As an intentionally small organization we are able to help each individual student feel comfortable in a new cultural environment. And as a small organization, we pay attention to the smallest details, allowing students the greatest access to learning and cultural exposure. SAI Programs is dedicated to introducing students to opportunities that encourage creative interaction among disciplines; communication, science, technology, art and design, economics and social sciences. In this way we seek to help students develop both the breadth and depth of creative thinking, cultural knowledge and professional skills. So when they return from their experiences, they have a deeper understanding of themselves and the world. We believe this will provide an advantage to them in their chosen careers and for the rest of their lives. I invite you to learn more about SAI Programs by visiting our web site saiprograms.com. Michael Cruciano, President SAI Programs

Our staff are experts in coordinating all aspects of the application and placement process to best match the goals of the internship candidates with the mission and scope of the internship site. Full-time intern candidates enroll in a three-week Italian language course and program orientation prior to the start of the Internship. During these three weeks, participants meet and visit potential internship sites and supervisors.

Advising & Orientation

It is important to continue communication with your academic advisor on campus to help you in selecting the courses that will fulfill your degree requirements and may help you in your future career and graduate school paths. Study abroad is considered to be a life-changing experience. Both the SAI admissions counselors and the SAI staff abroad can help to enhance this defining moment in your life. No question is ever unimportant at SAI. You can email, phone, or establish communication through Facebook, Twitter or SAI’s live chat website feature. Upon arrival you will participate in an orientation program, intended to familiarize you with the local environment. You will learn some of the local customs to help make your stay in your new city successful. Host school and SAI program policies are thoroughly reviewed during orientation.

SAI provides service learning, volunteer programs and community-based research projects with the overall goal of improving the quality of life for the local community. Students will explore their own cultural identity with respect to the local culture while giving back to their host communities. Not only do these programs and projects have advantages for the communities, but experts agree that these types of activities add an extra dimension to living and learning abroad, help to develop knowledge and skills for the global marketplace, and from a practical perspective, serve as boosters to resumes and graduate school applications.

SAI

Begin the process as early as possible. SAI stresses the importance of meeting with your academic advisor to discuss how to “save” or “bank” courses to take while abroad. Get to know your academic advisor and the advisors in the study abroad office so when questions arise, you know where to turn. From the moment that you express interest in SAI programs, there is someone who is there to help you. SAI admissions counselors are knowledgeable about the programs, courses, cities and countries where the schools are located, and have extensive experience in helping students transition from their colleges and universities in their home countries to the SAI schools abroad.

Often, students are transformed from the service experiences and discover a new sense of their own identities and their roles as global citizens.

7

For many, being a volunteer abroad represents an opportunity they simply haven’t had time to realize back home, where they juggle work, school, and busy lives. As a volunteer, students have the opportunity to explore their own culture, ideas and expectations with respect to the local realities they will encounter, while at the same time giving back to their host community. The relationships made as a result of these experiences can be life long and life changing for both students and locals alike. Most SAI programs offer volunteer opportunities and your SAI Advisor will guide you through the process of choosing a position that suits you. In addition, many SAI sites offer a variety of internships. You can find information on both volunteer and internship opportunities in more detail at the SAI website.

Our Program Coordinators and Advisors hold daily office hours and are always available to offer assistance with personal issues that are common when studying abroad, as well as academic problems that may arise. The Student Services Program, an ongoing and reassuring presence, includes an active calendar of social events and excursions, culminating in a farewell dinner at the end of each term. The SAI on-site staff regularly organizes culinary, cultural, sports and musical events, often free to SAI students. SAI encourages students to participate in these activities as another way to learn about the country and culture.

Community & Cultural Integration As a result of our strong ties to the local communities, SAI offers a variety of high impact service activities that help students gain a meaningful global perspective while making a difference in their world. Community service enhances students’ academic, professional, and intercultural development. Students engaged in the community examine real-life problems and collaborate with local residents to address community needs. Students may work on a specific project or participate in community, cultural or government related programs for a designated time. Examples include working with local immigration officials, teaching English and computer skills, serving the elderly community, participating with local medical emergency teams, or providing services to youth.

The City

Student Life

The beauty and wealth of Florence has attracted every society, from Romans to our present world. Though Florence is an ancient city, the focal point today is the art and architecture, and the Renaissance that blossomed there from 1400 – 1600. No other place in Europe reflects the birth and development of modern society more than Florence, through its exquisite examples of art and architecture. The Renaissance or “rebirth”, the revolutionary time that followed the Dark Ages of Europe, changed the world forever by placing importance on the individual and on creativity.

SAI recognizes that a well-rounded study abroad experience includes learning opportunities both in and out of the classroom. By providing a strong Student Services program, our staff aims to support students in their personal growth through daily cultural interactions both in Florence and as they travel beyond.

The program’s location in the historic center of Florence offers students the opportunity to live in the heart of the Renaissance while experiencing the modern, thriving city of today. The streets of Florence still ring with the vibrant culture that began over 600 years ago; the center has changed little, combining the elegance and quality of Renaissance style with a stunning blend of modern design. It is an immensely fun city, filled with people from all parts of the world. The lush hills and mountains of Tuscany surround the city, offering themselves for exploration on afternoons or weekends. Though Florence has a rich history, today it is an important center for contemporary art, fashion design, graphics and business. We invite you to experience this contrast of past and present with other students from around the world that come to study in Florence.

www.saiprograms.com

At the beginning of each term, students participate in an orientation during which they are given general information, school policies, a profile of Italian culture, a guided walking tour of the city and school premises, an Italian language placement test and a final course registration. You will meet your advisors at orientation, and they will be available to assist you with any academic or personal issues that may arise throughout the term. Advisors also plan frequent social events for students, ranging from restaurant dinners of regional cuisine to the wildly popular local soccer matches.

The school’s main building, Palazzo Doni, is located steps away from the Santa Croce Church (Basilica di Santa Croce). This Renaissance building was once owned by the Doni family, patrons of Michelangelo. The classroom named “Aula Michelangelo” was once the Doni family master bedroom, where Michelangelo’s commissioned work was displayed. Palazzo Bombicci Guicciardini Strozzi, located across the street from Palazzo Doni, hosts many classrooms as well as an advanced photography studio, including professional dark room. Palazzo Strozzi is also the location of the Palestra (the gym) that all FUA students may use. Palazzo Ramirez de Montalvo accommodates the Italian language and Italian literature departments of Florence University of the Arts. In addition, Palazzo Ramirez de Montalvo hosts regular events, including afternoon lectures and a film series, as well as special evening events such as book launches, lectures, discussion groups and conferences. Villa Brilli Peri houses most of the food and wine studies. This palazzo hosts classes in the professional kitchens and, specially designed Wine Appreciation teaching classroom.

JOHN CABOT UNIVERSITY

ROME

The City

Student Life

It has been said that more than a lifetime is needed to experience all that the city of Rome has to offer. It is a city layered with art and antiquities encompassing 2,500 years of history — from the Coliseum, the Imperial Forum, and the Roman Pantheon, to Vatican City, with the Sistine Chapel and Vatican museum. The city of Rome is home to over five million people and is a global center of business, diplomacy, religion, film, art, and fashion.

SAI students participate in an orientation program, which provides information on the school and its policies, the city of Rome, and what to expect while living abroad. By the end of orientation, students will have a good understanding of how to find their classes, buy supplies and groceries, and move about independently in the city. Students have many opportunities to adventure beyond the city of Rome. You may join the regular excursions organized by SAI, or you may choose to travel on your own. An efficient rail system allows easy access to places of interest and many low cost airlines offer convenient travel to other European cities.

In Rome, SAI offers two distinct program options; John Cabot University and Italiaidea Institute.

Students are offered a variety of co-curricular activities both on and off campus. Students may become active Student Council members, or participate on the debate team. Intramural soccer, basketball and volleyball are available, as well as swimming at a nearby pool. Several gyms are available in Trastevere, within easy walking distance of the campus. Films are shown at JCU every week through the cinema club, and the university’s theater group stages a major dramatic or musical production twice a year. “Program Coordinators are all great! They are incredibly helpful and willing to answer questions. It has been such a relief to have that form of support here.” ~ Fall student

JCU students encounter a rigorous liberal arts curriculum amidst centuries of art and architecture, in the center of one of the world’s great modern cities. John Cabot University maintains two campuses in Rome, each with its own personality. Walk through the Porta Settimiana (built in the third century) and you will find JCU’s Frank J. Guarini Campus. Located on the grounds of the Accademia dei Lincei, the National Science Academy, where Galileo was a member, this historic building takes full advantage of Rome’s mild climate, opening onto patios, terraces and a spacious “Lemon Tree” courtyard surrounded by bougainvillea. Students regularly congregate in these open spaces and terraces to study and socialize. In addition to classrooms, the Guarini Campus houses the Aula Magna Regina auditorium, which hosts lectures, concerts, plays and films; the Frohring Library, with its study rooms, multimedia lab and media room; as well as JCU administrative offices.

Everything’s just a stone’s throw away from Italiaidea: Piazza Venezia and the Capitoline, the Parliament and the Governmental Palace, Piazza del Popolo and Via del Corso. You will encounter a richness of sites, making it difficult to choose how to spend your free time. You will discover that Rome is an open-air theater which never ceases to amaze. It is an incredible city which enchants all with its great panoramas, piazzas, buildings, churches, ruins and museums; a great world capital which continues to maintain an authentic and traditional atmosphere in the peace of its small streets and its splendid piazzas bursting with people and life. “Rome is the great mother”, Fellini said, “who accepts all and where all find what they are looking for: art, cuisine, religion, cinema, nightlife or the peace of a boat-trip on the river, the boutiques of the major Italian designers or the small artisan workshops”.

JCU’s Tiber Campus, located on the banks of Rome’s famous Tiber river and a five-minute walk from Guarini, is a spacious, state-ofthe-art building with smart classrooms, a student lounge and JCU offices such as Student Services and Counseling. Designed by the Italian modernist architect Angelo di Castro in 1958, it was completely renovated to accommodate 21st-century learning styles and technologies, while maintaining the architectural integrity of this former elementary school. Both John Cabot University campuses are wireless and set up to encourage dialogue and collaboration among the international student population.

Summer I: Institute For Creative Writing and Literary Translation Summer II: Institute In International Communication

SAI Global Leaders Certificate The SAI Global Leaders Certificate, offered at our Rome program, is designed to enrich students’ experiences while studying abroad and to acknowledge their academic and service work by providing an additional credential beyond a university transcript. The city of Rome offers students unique opportunities to link classroom learning to real world experiences, while living and studying in a dynamic international capital city. The Global Leaders Certificate is based on the premise that students engaged in their own communities and abroad have increased opportunities to develop leadership skills that contribute to academic and career success. While in Rome, students will gain awareness of leadership strategies that can be applied in local and global contexts. Students will broaden their awareness of global issues and deepen their knowledge of the local host community’s role in an increasingly interconnected world through exploration of research, engagement in community services and interaction with experts and leaders. Mentoring and structured reflection are integrated into the Certificate Program. SAI coordinators in Rome serve as mentors and meet regularly with students to discuss their progress and perspectives on their individual and group experiences. The Global Leaders Certificate enhances leadership skills by helping students to understand themselves in relationship to the world community. Both the academic and service components enable students to identify economic, political and cultural forces that shape the global market and influence global leadership. When applying to SAI, students must indicate on their application the Global Leaders Certificate in their Rome program option.

ITALIAIDEA INSTITUTE ROME

Host School Since 1984 Italiaidea Institute (ITAL), authorized by the Italian Ministry of Education, has offered outstanding courses in Italian language and culture, becoming the foremost language institute in Rome. Today Italiaidea teaches around 1,500 students every year. Located in the heart of ancient Rome near the Spanish Steps and the Trevi Fountain, the school draws students from around the world, creating an international environment while focusing on Italian language and culture. At Italiaidea, SAI offers an immersion program that includes the choice of homestay housing, an excellent way to encourage your studies in Italian language. Students may also choose to be housed in SAI shared student apartments, in the center of Rome. Throughout its history Italiaidea has constantly worked to ensure the highest quality of service. In 1985 the school began to teach courses of Italian study for the Rhode Island School of Design (R.I.S.D.). In 1986 Italiaidea was asked to begin work with Cornell University; and in 1995 British Airways began sending its staff for language training. Since then Italiaidea’s list of clients has grown to include institutions such as Dartmouth College, the Embassies of the United States, France, Spain, Germany and Israel, and religious institutions such as North American College.

The main building is situated between the Trevi Fountain and Piazza di Spagna, easily arrived at by foot from Metro Station Piazza di Spagna, Metro Station Barberini, or the bus which follows Via del Tritone.

“I look back on studying abroad everyday and wish I were still there. It changed me for the better, I figured out what I want to do with my life. I’m moving back to Europe after I graduate and I am thankful everyday for the decision I made to study in Italy. It was the best experience of my life, hands down.” ~ Spring student

The City Nestled in rolling hills in the heart of Tuscany, just 70 miles south of Florence, Siena was first settled during Etruscan times and during the time of Emperor Augustus, a Roman town was founded on the site of Siena. As an important money-lending center, Siena prospered as a city-state. With its narrow winding roads and medieval architecture, Siena appears all but untouched by modern times. One can wander through tucked-away squares and tour museums and churches that are home to countless renowned works of Byzantine, Renaissance and High Renaissance art. A UNESCO World Heritage Site, the city is a major attraction and is also a bustling university town. One of the oldest in Europe, the University of Siena was founded in 1240 and currently enrolls more than 20,000 students. The city offers exciting sporting and cultural events year round, including one of the top basketball teams in Europe, as well as the AC Siena soccer team and many theatrical events and a series of concerts sponsored by the famous Chigiana Musical Academy and the Siena Jazz Summer Festival. “Siena truly is an amazing place to do your study abroad experience. There is such an incredible amount of culture and history within the winding roads and surrounding walls that, after just a few months here, it will feel like your home away from home.” ~ Summer student

www.saiprograms.com

Siena is perhaps most famous for the heart stopping horse race, Il Palio. This spectacular event takes place twice each summer in the central square of the city and has roots that can be traced back centuries. The exhilarating bareback race pits each of the city’s 17 neighborhoods, or contrade, against one another and is not to be missed – the victorious neighborhood celebrates for an entire year!


In many courses, learning is not limited to the classroom. Whenever possible, Siena Italian Studies integrates field excursions and visits to enhance comprehension and provide students with a multifaceted experience. For example, art history courses naturally include visits to museums, churches and sites of artistic relevance in Siena, Florence and other towns in the region so that students can see first-hand the masterpieces discussed in class.

Each semester program includes a 4-day group excursion to a chosen location. This excursion follows the Intensive Italian Course (the first 3 weeks of the semester) and includes some relaxation time as well as visits to culturally significant sites. Several half-day and full-day excursions give students a wide-ranging and meaningful experience of Tuscany (and other regions of Italy) of the sort tourists rarely have. We walk through the Tuscan countryside from one unspoiled small town to the next, passing along ancient Roman byways and through woods where locals hunt for mushrooms and gather herbs; visit farms that produce wine, olive oil and pecorino cheese; relax in one of the region’s many natural hot springs; experience traditional Tuscan festivals such as Carnevale in Foiano della Chiana. Each term also includes a visit to Florence and the Uffizi Gallery, as well as an Italian Opera in Florence or Rome and a day trip hiking along the Tuscan coast to an unspoiled beach in the Maremma Region of Tuscany.

Cultural Anthropology students may attend traditional local festivals and visit museums dedicated to aspects of Tuscan folk culture; students studying Italian Costume will have the opportunity to visit museums dedicated to textiles, costumes and individual Italian designers in the Florence/Prato area, while students studying the History of Italian Cuisine might visit a local cheese making farm and attend a hands-on cooking lesson, and the list goes on.

Siena Italian Studies (SIS) is a study abroad program based at the International Center for Intercultural Exchange in Siena, Italy. SIS programs are a ‘gentle full-immersion’ in Italian life for highly motivated beginners, intermediate and advanced Italian language students. SIS offers some of the most innovative programs in Italy that work to fully integrate the education of language, culture and service-learning, in and out of the classroom. Classes are taught using an instructional approach developed over the years, known as FICCS (Full-Immersion: Culture, Content, & Service). Using this approach, which combines guided and spontaneous learning acquisition, students are asked to employ new language skills both in the classroom and in service situations, giving them a learning experience like no other. SIS programs are intended for students with a wide range of motivations for studying abroad. From acquiring a mastery of the Italian language, to using a local Renaissance chapel as your art history classroom, or working alongside the city’s volunteer medical assistance team, Siena Italian Studies provides you with the means to create an unforgettable experience abroad. All students are housed in family board accommodations, encouraging use of your new language skills and deepening your interaction with Italian families and culture.

Voluteer program Participants in all SIS programs are encouraged to perform service in the community through the IC partner Ulisse Cultural Association. This service can range from 1-5 hours a week and opportunities are at a variety of different service sites. Students might set tables at the city soup kitchen, visit with the elderly at a nursing home, teach English to local elementary school children or volunteer on the city ambulance. Volunteering in the community is an unparalleled way to improve language skills, get involved in the local social fabric and make a genuine contribution to the host community. EXAMPLES OF VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES

Internships

There are several internship placements available for interested students. These unpaid internships allow students to observe and participate in the day-to-day activities of several local businesses, organizations and structures. Internship students will participate in weekly on-site activities, as well as complete related coursework during the semester and a final reflective paper about a relevant aspect of the internship experience. Internships can be taken for or without academic credit. Some internship placements require students to take ‘Business and Legislative Italian’ course, in order to receive internship credit (3 credits per term/internship). EXAMPLES OF INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES • Cooking School Internship • City Library “Biblioteca degli Intronati” • Adult English/Spanish Language Program • Community Service Health Organization • City Hospital • Siena Italian Studies Office

Academic Programs SAI students attending the program at SIS receive U.S. transferable credits from Portland State University. At SIS, SAI offers semester and summer programs. Language and culture make up an inseparable binomial; who can really say whether it’s culture that generates language, or language that generates culture? This is the basis of Siena Italian Studies’ version of Full-Immersion: Culture, Content and Service (FICCS). For SIS, full-immersion is not a form of ‘torture’ or trial-by-fire


The overall objective of full-immersion at SIS is for each student to begin to recognize and activate these capacities, and to develop a reflective intercultural competence, which will allow him or her to function as a global citizen capable of facing and interacting with different cultures throughout the course of his/her lifetime with awareness and sensitivity.

Summer programs Summer students take a combination of Italian Language and elective courses. Programs range from four to eight weeks for a total of 6 to 12 U.S. credits. These courses begin in English then transition to Italian.

MILAN

The City Milan is synonymous with cutting-edge fashion, and is also internationally renowned as a center for interior, industrial, graphic and product design.

In addition to exploring Italy’s rich design heritage, students will be challenged to develop their own creative voices and to explore new ideas, approaches and methods.

www.saiprograms.com


The majority of students who study abroad say that one of the most valuable aspects of living in a European city is the opportunity to travel to other European cities. Milan’s geographical location allows easy access not only to all major Italian cities, but also to major European centers; the Swiss border is less than an hour away. Students can ski in the Alps in the winter months and enjoy Lake Garda, Como, and other famously beautiful Italian lakes in warmer times.

NABA + DA

Students studying design in Milan will enjoy daily life in a dynamic, modern, international city. Milan (Milano in Italian), the “second city of Italy,” located on the plains of the northern province of Lombardy surrounded by an arc of mountains and lakes, is a world-renowned, international center for fashion, design, finance, industry, and calcio (soccer, as Americans call it). It has great museums, a huge castle, one of the largest Gothic cathedrals on earth, and one of the world’s most famous paintings (Leonardo da Vinci’s Last Supper). The circuit of annual fashion shows, design fairs and exhibitions in the city attracts many international visitors and celebrities. Despite its work-orientated persona as Italy’s economic powerhouse, Milan has many hidden gems: apart from the discount designer outlet stores, you’ll have time to discover the Italian dolce vita (sweet life) in the many outdoor cafés around the city.

Furthermore, DA gives its students the opportunity to meet and work with a wide network of design and fashion companies.

BUSINESS DESIGN

This MA intends to create a new managerial class for design driven companies composed of individuals able to combine creativity, managerial skills and entrepreneurial spirit. Its goal is to provide tools to tackle complex social conditions, globalization and the spread of new economic production systems. CAR & transportation DESIGN

This MA follows the approach of “learning by designing”, where participants learn by direct, active involvement in several design experiences. This program aims at strengthening participants’ design competencies together with the development of their professional profile. At the end of the program, students will be ready to work as car designers, within the framework of a company or a design studio, and to effectively interact with the marketing, production and finance functions.

DA Master’s Programs Domus Academy offers thirteen 12-month Master’s Programs, all taught in English. Interested applicants should contact our California office for more details. Accessories Design Business Design Car & Transportation Design Fashion Design Fashion Management Fashion Styling & Visual Merchandising Interaction Design Interior and Living Design Luxury Brand Management Product Design Urban Vision and Architectural Design Visual Brand Design ACCESSORIES DESIGN

This MA focuses on everything concerning people and clothing; leather goods and jewels often become creations as important as the dress that they complement. In collaboration with Ars Sutoria, the most prestigious institute of technical specialization in leather goods, participants will explore the accessories field with an innovative approach, in order to acquire an all-around and advanced knowledge of the industry.

FASHION DESIGN

This MA has been developed according to the evolution of a system increasingly searching for professionals who possess interdisciplinary skills, creativity and ability to manage a project from production, through communication up to distribution. This is a training program designed to contribute to the development of professional figures able to successfully express their creative sensibility and properly face the new challenges coming into the Fashion World. FASHION MANAGEMENT

This Master’s program aims at shaping and developing the next generation of managers suited to the specific requirements of Fashion. The program aims at creating different profiles in Fashion: from product to brand, distribution and communication. Fashion Styling and Visual Merchandising

This program is offered in collaboration with: Canon, Casio, Dainese, Honda, Ikea, Louis Vitton, Mandarina Duck, Mitsubishi Electronics, Nokia, and Samsung. URBAN VISION AND ARCHITECTURAL DESIGN

Visual brand design

The concept of branding is moving away from the traditional idea of creating an “image” to represent the name and the values of a company, by exploring a broader view, that incorporates several disciplines, from visual design to sound design, from storytelling to consumers’ psychology and marketing techniques, thus addressing a strongly integrated approach whose aim is to identify the core assets and to orchestrate them into a consistent brand identity. Branding is now much more than the definition of a visual image: it’s the creation of a rich and attractive environment, to catch the consumer’s attention and bring him/her into the brand world, to share the brand values and to become an informal sponsor of the brand. The Master in Visual Brand Design is a unique opportunity to acquire hands-on competencies and in-depth knowledge on how to design the identity of a company and/or organization, by integrating graphic design skills with strategic thinking.

DOMUS ACADEMY

APPLICATION PROCEDURES PROGRAM REQUIREMENTS: • Minimum 18 years of age • Personal Statement • Letter of Recommendation (Siena Italian Studies Only) • Minimum GPA 2.5 (Florence University of the Arts 2.75) APPLICANTS FROM SAI-AFFILIATED SCHOOLS Students from affiliated schools should discuss their plans with the study abroad office at their home school. Some affiliate schools require students to pay all fees directly to SAI while others do not. Be sure to discuss this with your study abroad advisor in order to be clear about the procedure your school uses in their affiliation with SAI. Affiliate students receive credit for courses taken abroad from their home institution. While affiliated schools guarantee credit, this does not guarantee every course will transfer or that it will transfer into your major area of study. Students are responsible for meeting with an advisor to verify transfer credit before beginning their SAI program. If you are uncertain about your college or university’s affiliation with SAI, drop by your study abroad office to discuss it with an advisor or contact the SAI office. You will find a list of current affiliates on our website. Students from affiliated universities MUST obtain approval from their study abroad office prior to submitting an application.

Among our program choices, certain sites are better equipped to assist students with disabilities than others. As this may be a factor in choosing which SAI program abroad to attend, notify us of any and all disabilities before applying. STUDENT VISAS All students studying abroad for MORE than 90 days are required to obtain a student visa. SAI provides Student Visa Consulting for all our students at no additional cost. SAI Programs also offers an optional service where we will obtain a visa on behalf of the student. With SAI Visa Processing you will not need to appear in person at the Consulate. The cost of this additional assistance is $250. See our SAI visa page for more information. HOUSING Housing assignments are sent by email 5-10 days before the term begins. Students requesting a private room are required to pay the private room supplement fee prior to our processing their single room request. Students electing to make their own housing arrangements will receive a reduction in the program cost. Since this differs from school to school, contact the SAI office for the exact amount of reduction.

APPLICANTS FROM NON-AFFILIATED SCHOOLS SAI welcomes students from any school. All students attending non-affiliated home universities will receive U.S. course credit from the U.S. school of record for their SAI program. For information on the U.S. school of record for your specific program go to the Services link on the program page of our website and click on “U.S. Academic Credit”.

DEADLINES STEP 1: Submit Application By: Fall Semester: June 15 Fall Quarter: July 15 Spring Semester: November 1 Spring Quarter: December 1 Summer terms: 60 days prior to check-in date NOTE: Late applications are accepted on a space available basis.

SAI automatically processes non-affiliate students through the U.S. school of record; no additional fee is imposed. All questions and correspondence should be directed to the SAI office in California. Upon completion of course work, transcripts will be issued by the U.S. school of record with U.S. credits. These credits are transferable to any school, though it is the student’s responsibility to confirm that specific courses will transfer by speaking in advance with their school advisor or study abroad office.

STEP 2: Acceptance/Confirmation Deposit Notification of acceptance status will be sent to you by email. Within 2 weeks of receiving the email acceptance a $500 NON-REFUNDABLE confirmation deposit, a $300 security deposit and private room supplement fee (if applicable) must be paid to secure your enrollment. Acceptance letters will include instructions and program payment dates.

DISABILITIES POLICY SAI is dedicated to providing education abroad opportunities to all students and does not discriminate on the basis of disability or handicap. If you experience any emotional, mental, physical or learning disabilities which may interfere with your ability to successfully pursue an academic course, and which you wish to be taken into account, please notify SAI as soon as possible. As always, advance planning is important in order to ensure the best possible experience abroad. Although we may not be able to require our partner schools abroad to provide accommodations, SAI can offer understanding, respect, and support, and we will do our best to assist students in finding reasonable accommodations similar to their home institutions. Regarding physical disability, it is important to note that Europe’s infrastructure and ability to accommodate disabled individuals differs from what is available in the United States. SAI will do its best to reasonably accommodate all students’ needs.

Step 3: Payment 1 - Equal to 50% of your total Program Cost Due by: Fall Semester: May 1 Fall Quarter: June 1 Spring Semester: October 1 Spring Quarter: October 15 Summer terms: 90 days prior to check-in Step 4: Payment 2 - Balance of Program Cost Due by: Fall Semester & Master’s Fall: July 1 Spring Semester & Master’s Spring: December 1 Summer Programs: 60 days prior to check-in date NOTE: Students confirmed after Payment 1 / Payment 2 due dates will receive an email from the SAI business office regarding further program payments now due. Either 50% or 100% of Program Cost will be due within 5 business days, based on your acceptance date. PAYMENTS
