In an increasingly globalized world, Study Abroad is essential to higher education. AEF cultivates the growth of Study Abroad students inside the classroom and beyond with courses for credit and extra-curricular activities devoted to cultural immersion. Students continue to progress toward their degree at their home university, while immersing in the history and unique culture of Florence. Most importantly, a semester abroad with AEF widens the perspective of each student as they prepare to finish school and begin their career.
A SEMESTER IN FLORENCE WITH AEF IS:
- Experiential Learning:
AEF offers great academic opportunities inside the classroom, but that is only the beginning! Adventures throughout the city, country, and continent await and our staff motivates and guides students to seize these opportunities on a daily basis. Whether it is a cooking class, a concert, a soccer match, or even a trip to another city, we support our students to experience as much as possible.
- Connected Learning::
All of AEF's classes, trips, and events are interconnected within the context of Florentine culture and history.
- Family Atmosphere:
AEF’s staff and students are part of a great AEF family tradition. As students adapt to their new home and culture, our faculty is 100% accessible to students both professionally and personally, making sure students feel at home both on campus and in the city.
- Artistic Studios:
AEF provides state of the art musical and artistic studios for its students. Students can draw inspiration from Florence's rich history of artistic excellence and develop their own skills in AEF's studios.
- Class Variety:
We offer a variety of classes in Performing Arts, Italian Language and Studies, Art, Design, Fashion, Food Studies and Social Sciences. If there is a course missing that you want or need, all you need to do is ask and we will do everything in our power to make it available.
