First Week at the University for Foreigners

Each semester, a small group of Umbra students enrolls at the University for Foreigners – or the Universita per Stranieri – in Perugia as part of the Italian Language and Culture Full Immersion Program. These students take courses in language and culture five days a week at the oldest and one of the most prestigious language universities in the country, studying and living with fellow students from around the world who have come to Perugia to advance their Italian skills. The Full Immersion program is an entirely different experience from Umbra’s General Studies track, as those who choose to participate have little contact with the other American students and truly immerse themselves in the Italian and international student culture of the city. Once a week they will meet with professors at Umbra for a tutorial session to reinforce what they are learning at Stranieri, but otherwise they take all of their classes at the university. In boca al luppo a tutti!
