Program Description:

Umbra Institute Intensive Italian

Program Overview

Study Italian at any level - from absolute beginner to advanced - at one of the oldest and most prestigious institutions of Italian language instruction in Italy.

This Direct Enrollment Program is a partnership between the ISI Perugia - The Umbra Institute and the Università per Stranieri (University for Foreigners). 

Students on the Intensive Italian Program enjoy being part of the ISI Perugia - The Umbra Institute community, as well as studying alongside international students at the Università per Stranieri

Coursework may consist of studying Italian language exclusively, or a combination of Italian language and literature, art, history, and culture at the advanced levels. You’ll take a placement exam when you arrive to determine your appropriate course selections.  The program consists of  27 hours a week at the university, coupled with weekly recitation classes with an ISI Perugia professor, who serves as a mentor and guide throughout this specialized and intensive experience. 

The hilltop city of Perugia, located halfway between Rome and Florence, is a quintessential university town, offering scenic art and architecture and historical resonance at every turn. With Etruscan walls, cobblestoned streets, and medieval churches surrounding you, you’ll find yourself in a contemporary, bustling place with visible traces of the past. 

ISI Perugia - The Umbra Institute, located on Perugia’s main piazza, adjacent to the duomo, is the only year-round independent American institute based in Perugia.
