A Big University Town in a Small Italian City. High Point students will take advantage of the Umbra Institute’s beautiful location in historic Perugia, Italy, to complete courses that count towards their majors, all while studying abroad and living in the real Italy. While the courses will be engaging, students will also have ample time on the weekend to travel elsewhere in Europe because no classes are held on Fridays. Thus, students have a three-day weekend.. Students can either 1) take just this class, or 2) take another course from the elective courses (all in English) offered at Umbra. See a list of standard summer courses here: Summer 2018 course offerings.
Student Life. Each summer the Umbra Institute hosts between 80 and 100 American and Italian college students from colleges and universities across the U.S. and in Perugia. Housing is provided for all students in shared apartments within a 5-minute walk of the Institute. Apartments are furnished with full kitchens and have WiFi access. Check out some of the student activities offered at Umbra.

“Seeing what you are learning about adds so much to the learning experience. Through my classes and travels I learned so much about Italian history, life, and culture. Even though Perugia is a smaller city, there is always something going on. There are two other universities in the city and students from all over the world to meet and get to know!”
“I came to Umbra to learn about Italy and about the culture here, but also more about America and myself. One regret I hear from every college graduate is that they never took the chance to study abroad. This program is so special and I was very lucky to be a part of something so unique.”
