I 100% learned more about myself. I grew so much and matured. It was the best experience ever but I say I wouldn't chose the same program again because there were too many Americans especially from my school. I wish I went to a program that had about 15 kids that I new so I still felt comfortable but could have meet more locals ... - Roger Williams University View Entire Review

January 07, 2019 Eye Opening
The experience gave a broader outlook on the world, I had known very little besides what I heard about from friends and family. However, living in the city showed me more than any story can, seeing people smile when I would try to speak Italian was always a great sight. Best of all however was the social aspect, while I am not u... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

About

Surrounded by the lush green hills of Tuscany, Florence pulses with the spirit of the Renaissance and the energy of a modern university town. For centuries it has enticed visitors with its storied gems of art, beauty, and Italian culture. Today, the brightest jewel in the crown of Tuscany burns bright, offering an exemplary opportunity to study, marvel, and explore. 

Students at the International Studies Institute—ISI—make full use of Florence as a living laboratory during their semester, summer, or academic year abroad. They walk the same medieval cobblestones as Dante, gaze upon the stunning masterpieces of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci, and practice their Italian in the shadow of Brunelleschi’s dome.

We can list many reasons why you should choose ISI as the program provider for your study abroad experience in Italy – from our state of the art facilities, to our outstanding student body, prestigious faculty, and more. We surveyed our alumni and asked them what made them choose ISI. Presented here are just a few of the main reasons. If, after exploring our website, you require more information just send us an email with any questions or queries you may have and we will be pleased to discuss the program with you.
