If you are interested in a program that gives you a thorough immersion into the Italian way of life while studying alongside international students, then Umbra University’s Intensive Italian Semester is perfect for you. It involves a direct enroll with Università per Stranieri (University for Foreigners).
The Università per Stranieri is one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of Italian language instruction in Italy. To be accepted into the Direct Enrollment Program, you should exhibit exceptional maturity, responsibility, openness, and a fervent interest in a challenging academic environment.
This program is open to students of any level of language proficiency, from absolute beginner to advanced.
You will study Italian exclusively or enroll in courses covering various topics in Italian language, literature, art, history, and culture at the advanced levels. A placement exam during orientation will determine the sequence of courses you will take.
The program includes about 27 hours a week at the university coupled with weekly recitation classes with an Umbra professor, who will guide, assist and assess you throughout your learning experience.
The same Umbra services (orientation, safety, cultural activities, and more) are available to Direct Enrollment students throughout the semester so please see the Umbra Institute’s full details.
You will live in shared apartments with other Italian or international students to help with language acquisition. The program calendar differs slightly from the other Umbra program options. There is no traditional fall or spring break, but you will enjoy holidays listed in the Italian calendar.
Please refer to the Umbra Institute's academic guide to see how these courses will appear on Arcadia transcripts according to proficiency level in which the students place.
