The American University of Rome is offering two special classes between the 4th July and the 29th July where high-school age students can try out the University, get a feel for what studying for an American degree feels like and truly experience life at AUR.

Our campus sits on top of the Gianicolo and overlooks the whole of Rome – but we don’t just look. Rome is our classroom and, throughout the year, our faculty and students make use of the history, art, culture, politics and life of Rome as part of their learning experience – and so will you.
