SA: Bologna Consortial Studies Program

Program Abroad:

  • Semester Abroad (SA): Bologna Consortial Studies Program, Italy

Ask me about...

  • How to find housing in Bologna

  • How much does renting an apartment cost

  • What Italian oral exams are like

  • Transferring credits

  • Applying to the Bologna Abroad Program (BCSP)

  • Obtaining a student visa

My Experience Abroad:

My experience of living in Bologna afforded me the opportunity to dive headfirst into Italian both linguistically and culturally. I was able to transfer all my coursework in Arabic and Italian for credit.

Other Highlights:

  • Forming relationships with Italian students at UNIBO (università di Bologna)

  • Traveling to small towns in Italy such as Castiglione di Lago or Gallipoli

  • Meeting my family in Le Marche, some of whom had not been in contact with an American Berrettini since 1970

  • Going to my cousin's wedding in Assisi
