U.S. Education in Italy

AMERICAN COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY AND RESEARCH PROGRAMS IN ITALY

When considering attending a U.S. study program in Italy, a distinction should be made between:

  • the numerous (currently 140) semester- or year-abroad programs offered by U.S. accredited institutions of higher education, and
  • degree-granting institutions.

Semester- or Year-abroad Programs offered by U.S. accredited institutions of higher education

These study-abroad programs in Italy are open only to students already enrolled at these institutions’ home campuses in the United States.

The vast majority of U.S. accredited higher education institutions present in Italy are members of the Association of American College and University Programs in Italy (AACUPI).

For more information on American colleges and universities in Italy, please visit the AACUPI website: http://www.aacupi.org

U.S. colleges and universities with degree-granting programs in Italy

The following universities with degree-granting programs based in Italy accept applications for admission from the general public, irrespective of nationality:

 

ENGLISH-TAUGHT EDUCATIONAL PROGRAMS IN ITALY (K-12)

There are no U.S. Government operated schools in Italy, but there are a number of independent, private schools offering courses and classes taught in English.

Some of the schools have classes from kindergarten to high school, while others offer a curriculum at the elementary or high school levels. Classes are taught in the English language, but emphasis is on multiculturalism and courses in Italian and other languages are offered at many of the schools.

Several schools do accept boarders. The school year often begins in September and ends in June, actual opening and closing dates vary from one school to the next.

The schools are listed in alphabetical order. More detailed information such as tuition fees, boarding, plans, etc. is available directly from each school.

Important Notice

Although this list is provided as a service to the public, the Embassy and Consulates cannot accept any responsibility for the ability or professional quality of the staff of the schools listed herein, for the services provided or for fees or prices charged.
