It might seem like studying abroad in Italy is such an exotic dream that it would be out of your reach. Actually, studying in Rome is easier than you think. As an American liberal arts university located outside the United States, at John Cabot University (JCU) we are committed to making our education as accessible as possible. This accessibility is reflected by our international, multilingual and diverse student body, representing over 60 countries from around the world. Many resources are provided to ensure qualified and talented students are able to receive our top quality, affordable university education. As our mission is to create a vibrant community of both degree-seeking and visiting students, we have merit-based study abroad scholarships available to provide financial assistance for visiting students who qualify.
Studying in Rome is easier than you think
A warm welcome is extended to visiting students joining our community, with access to a wide variety of English-language resources to ensure you are able to academically succeed while connecting with a global network of students and faculty. JCU is accredited by the Middle States Commission on Higher Education, so credits earned here are easily transferable back to your home school, allowing you to stay on track for graduation.
Home to one of the oldest universities in the world, Italy is well known to be a top destination for Americans wishing to study abroad. The opportunity to learn amidst the rich historical splendor of the Roman Empire’s capital is too good to pass up.
Scholarship opportunities at JCU
Students applying for scholarships will be evaluated based on academic performance, financial need and fund availability. The JCU Scholarship Committee will also determine awards based on an essay submission – a concise 250 word explanation of how the JCU experience will advance your personal and professional growth. (Please note that students who apply through providers or existing university agreements are not eligible for scholarships.)
Transferring Financial Aid and other resources
Visiting students from American universities may transfer some or all of their financial aid to John Cabot University through a Consortium Agreement between the two institutions. Contact your home institution’s Financial Aid or Study Abroad office after being officially accepted to the university and JCU can assist with the process. Ensure that you submit your Consortium Agreement before the payment deadline and follow the instructions on our website. Take advantage of the resources available to help you study in Italy and earn the education of a lifetime!
