SAI Programs Reviews
Submitted by Jessica K - Southern Methodist University | July 20, 2017
Studying abroad was an amazing experience. I fell absolutely in love with Florence and visited some jaw-droppingly beautiful places. I didn't know I wanted to study abroad for sure until about two days or so before application deadlines. I scrambled to get everything together and emailed SAI about a hundred times with questions and confirmations about my app. They were the most patient and helpful staff I have ever worked with. Overseas, they were just as accommodating while I adjusted to new life in another country. I really appreciate the hard work they put in to make students feel cared for and safe. I highly recommend them!

I fell in love with the city of Barcelona and SAI helped make my experience so much more comfortable. My program always encouraged me to try new things and discover as much about the place as I could and it really helped make a difference in my time abroad. I had a lot of friends also studying in Barcelona that went with other programs. After hearing about their experiences and opportunities available from their programs, I can confidently say that SAI is a special program and offers a lot more than other programs.
Go outside and speak Italian
Submitted by Martyna - Suffolk University | June 21, 2017
I would say my study abroad experience was unlike many other peoples, I quickly became friends with degree seekers at the university which furthered my cultural immersion in Rome but also introduced me to people from all around the world. By the end of the year I not only spoke Italian fairly well but also had formed life long friendships with a multitude of people from many countries. John Cabot is a very international school with a good ratio of study abroad to degree seekers, the location of the University and the SAI housing and apartments was very central and in one of the most beautiful areas of Rome. SAI also provided a multitude of program activities such as cooking classes, city tours and a 3 day excursion all costs included !!!! Choosing Rome and John Cabot as my study abroad destination was one of the best decisions I have ever made, it was one year of living the true Italian bella vita and I wouldn't have traded it for any other experience.

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!
