between the University of Miami and the American University of Rome (AUR), providing you the opportunity to enroll as a full-time college student in the fall and attend the University of Miami program based at the AUR.

Students will enroll in 15 college credits as a full-time non-degree seeking and study alongside fellow University of Miami upperclassmen also at AUR participating in study abroad. UM in Rome students will be taking courses such as Introduction to Italian Language and Culture-for which no previous experience with the language is needed (3 credits), History of Modern Italy (3 credits), Freshman Writing Workshop (3 credits), along with other courses in various topics. All courses will be taught by AUR professors with exception of Italian Language and Culture, which will be team taught by UM and AUR professors.

All students holding a non-European Union passport are required by law to obtain a student visa before departing from their home country. Without a valid student visa students can not apply to obtain their Permit to Stay. Upon arrival in Rome, all students who are citizens of countries which are not European Union Members must obtain a permit to stay in Italy (Permesso di Soggiorno per Studio). This permit is issued by the local police authorities (Questura). The AUR will provide relevant information and assistance to you upon arrival to secure your first permit to stay.
More information on the visa and permit to stay can be found on the AUR website.

Health Insurance: Italian law requires all visiting students to obtain a mandatory state emergency health coverage for the duration of their study in Italy. More information on health insurance can be found here.

Please note that no scholarships or financial assistance will be available. UM in Rome is a University of Miami program. Students enrolled in the UM in Rome Program will not be permitted to transfer to American University in Rome at the conclusion of the semester.
