SAI Programs Reviews

I absolutely loved everything about SAI. It's so much better to do a small program because you really get to know your (amazing) program director and can talk to her one on one. You also really get to know all of the other students in your program and you all become a close family. All of the excursions are so much fun and so well planned out. Barcelona is an amazing city with so much to offer. Any type of person can have an incredible experience there. You can go to the beach, hike a mountain, go to museums and art galleries and/or go to Camp Nou to see a futbol game! Definitely pick SAI and Barcelona! I would go back in a heartbeat.
SAI Barcelona, Spain

SAI is incredibly put together! Had an amazing experience with them from pre-departure days all the way through till the end. I would recommend them to anyone wanting to study abroad in a heart beat. Mireia, the program coordinator for Barcelona, is more than perfect for her position. She is impossible not to love, and without her, I definitely wouldn't have had the amazing time that I did. As for Elisava, I think it was a great school that helped me view design in a completely different way than I was used to. But I also feel Elisava could have done a much better job with their criteria in some classes, and the teachers they chose to teach them.
So much fun!

This entire semester was better than I had expected. Our program coordinator was so helpful and loved getting to know every one of us. The only thing I wish was different was the level of difficulty at Elisava. I do not think I learned as much as I would have liked. But overall, a great experience!

My experience with SAI Florence and Florence University of the Arts was a truly phenomenal and life-changing time in my life. Going abroad truly opened my eyes to so many new things I could do in the world and made me more confident in doing so. SAI was an amazing program to go with and I feel lucky to have been able to have them coach me through living abroad. My program directors were extremely helpful and informative and always available to talk. They provided us with amazing apartments, in the cutest neighbourhoods in Florence, that were only a ten-minute walk from the school's main campus! I also really enjoyed Florence as a city and felt it was a great place to learn to truly live on my own devices, and it allowed me to learn so much about myself that I don't think I would have learned otherwise. Overall, I would definitely recommend this program to anyone looking to study abroad, and especially if you are looking to study abroad in Italy!
Experience of a lifetime

SAI was the best program for me! I had the best on-staff advisors who were always helpful, friendly, and energetic, which really made the program so enjoyable. There was plenty of excursions or day events that were offered that I regularly attended and were always so much fun. Without these events, I don't think I would have seen much of Rome or Italy. John Cabot University was a smaller school so the classrooms were smaller which was different for me, but it was a better way to get to know my peers and professors. I loved my housing situation because I was immersed with the locals and other SAI students. I lived in an apartment with other SAI students, but the apartment complex was filled with other Italian locals. It was safe and only a 15 minute walk from JCU. I would recommend SAI to any students who are looking to study abroad. I met some of my best friends when studying abroad and traveled to so many other European countries. This was all possible because SAI influenced me and gave me the opportunity to study in Rome.
