Discover the Beauty of Italy on Weekend Trips

Of course, when you get to Italy, you’ll want to explore your beautiful surroundings. We provide our students with plenty of avenues to do that. The Student Services office at JCU organizes day and weekend trips to various Italian regions such as Campania, Venice, Capri, and Tivoli. Students enjoy exciting activities such as wine tasting, sailing, and hiking. These immersive cultural experiences expose students to fine dining, art, and architecture from ancient history and beautiful scenery.

Explore a whole new world during day and weekend trips at JCU


Former student Andy Steeves said years ago about his semester at JCU: “I realized that travel is all about bridging those cultural gaps. When we learn and live in a country that’s not our own, the world begins to shrink around us, and the cultural differences that we initially consider inconvenient, overwhelming, and confusing melt into a fuller comprehension of the beautiful diversity on this planet.” 


Attend Webinars at JCU to Advance Your Career

When you study abroad in Rome, you will have plenty of opportunities to develop your career before you even graduate. Webinars are held regularly, covering various career-related topics that introduce you to various industries and fascinating subjects. Delivered by experienced industry leaders, your experience at JCU will provide you with plenty of vocational value you can utilize throughout your education and beyond. Our webinars cover topics like networking, writing a good cover letter, how to apply to internships at JCU, the future of ethical AI, and much more. 

Student life at John Cabot University is a fun, enriching, and educational experience. Don’t miss out!
