John Cabot University is an American-accredited university in Rome, Italy, offering degree and study abroad programs to students from over 70 countries. Spending your gap year at JCU will allow you to explore Italy and Europe while earning credits that will transfer easily to an American university. You can apply for one or two semesters or summer sessions.
Gap year students are not required to adhere to our core curriculum, allowing you to choose from our 400 course options while earning college credits. Our professors and staff serve as mentors who can help you decide what you would like to study when you officially enroll in an undergraduate program.
