Excellent Academics

My semester at FUA in Italy was transformative! The courses were engaging and challenging, with passionate professors who genuinely cared about our learning. Florence itself is a stunning, vibrant city that became a second home. From art history to Italian cuisine, every day was an adventure. This program not only enhanced my academic knowledge but also provided rich cultural experiences that I will treasure forever. Highly recommend for a holistic and enriching study abroad experience.

Italy is beautiful and this study abroad program was nearly perfect!

What better place to study photography than the most beautiful person in the entire world? I didn't plan on doing a semester abroad, but when my best friend decided to go for it (in Prague) I thought I may as well branch out myself. I was really afraid of being without the security of familiar people and places, but I cannot believe how much that changed within mere days. My confidence has gone through the roof and I put myself out there much more than ever. I never thought my introverted nature would change, but it really has. I am who I am today due in part to this experience in Italy.

I've always loved photography, but my passion for it has grown, as has my interest in all things Italian. It was honestly a dream. I loved studying and exploring here. I met wonderful people and studied with some really talented people.

The biggest suggestion I could give to other college students is to go for it! Leave your comfort zone, and if possible, study in Italy. You might never want to go home.

Study abroad in Italy... You will not regret it!

Economics might not be everyone's idea of an exciting major, but when I found there were interesting places where I could study abroad, I jumped at it.

Italy has always been on the top of my list of places to visit, since my Dad's family is from Sicily. When I found out that I had been accepted into this study abroad program, I was elated.

The entire experience was like a dream and it flew by so fast. I had the time of my life. Italy is more beautiful than any photo could show, and the places I lived, studied, ate (a LOT) and spent my downtime were incredible. I always felt welcome and nicely challenged. Now I cannot wait to go back after graduation!

The best thing I could have done in my college years!

I've always wanted to learn Italian, and finding this opportunity to study abroad was all of the motivation that I needed to finally do it. When I found a fine arts and visual arts opportunity on this site, I knew I needed to do it. Luckily I was able to get a spot, and I'm forever thankful that I did.

First of all, Italy is the most amazing country. I had never visited before this, and I cannot wait to go back. The culture, the people, the food... Everything was incredible.

My studies were amazing. I learned so much--even excelled in learning Italian--and everyone was wonderful. The other students at the university, the other students studying abroad, and the professors. This was the best semester of my life by far.

Great Experience

I was there in the Fall of 2011. It was a great experience. For a little more than 3 months I visited so many new places, I made so many friends, and earned college credits. I would recommend this program to any college student!
