Student Review:

Picture of International University College in Rome, Italy•  “It’s an experience that is unparalleled by any other, and Rome is definitely a city that will teach you a lot about the world as well as about yourself.”
Andrea, USA

•  "Class sizes range from 1 to 15 students on the average. I know in my classes, I have one class that has only 5 students and the most is about twelve. I really enjoy the small classes because it allows us to get a close relationship with the professors and get the most out of the course material."
Haley, USA

•  "I am a visiting student from Michigan State University. I am studying here at John Cabot to get some smaller class sizes compared to my large ones at Michigan State. I love Italy, the people here are amazing and of course the food and the culture!"
Jamie, USA

•  “John Cabot offers credits that I can use towards my university requirements.”
