Best experience of my life

Great professors, interesting courses and breath-taking location. I've taken classes from multiple departments and each one of them has been incredibly inspirational. They don't want to fill your head with notions here, they really want you to think and grow culturally. Besides academics, student life is great. There are so many clubs and organizations, there's always a fun event go to and interesting people from so many different cultural backgrounds to meet! It is also a good opportunity for degree seekers and visiting students to mix and become friends.

A Home Away From Home

I have never felt so comfortable in an uncomfortable situation in my life. Rome was magical and the people I met, the classes I took, and the experiences I had were incredible. It was the greatest time of my life and I am so grateful to have attended JCU.

Awesome Time in Rome

Rome is one of the greatest cities in the world and I discovered this through my gap year at John Cabot. I met a ton of friends and they were extremely kind. We still are in contact and I truly loved discovering the city. I lived in Trastevere, one of the nicest parts of the city and it was amazing.
