Study in Rome this summer

ACU is thrilled to offer students a unique learning experience to study the Italian language at our Rome Campus in January 2023 as part of the summer teaching period.

Students enroll in Introductory Italian (ITAN101) during the summer period and complete the first half of the unit online in Australia, then travel to Rome to live, study and further develop their Italian language skills at our Rome campus. The program is open to ACU students from all faculties (with approved electives).

Students gain credit towards their degree and will be among the first students to live and learn at our new Campus di Roma, located centrally in the picturesque Trastevere district and close to historical and cultural sites, eateries and the Vatican City.

This represents a great opportunity for those who wish to learn a language and immerse themselves in the Italian culture.

Please share this with your students.

Applications close 12 August and places are limited.
