Student Services

Before You Arrive

The AEF staff are always available for any help or information needed throughout your time in Italy. We would be very happy to schedule a pre-departure Q & A session with all our incoming students belonging to the same program to answer any questions or help address any issues you may have about your program experience.

Although accommodation is not included in this program, if you are having trouble finding a living arrangement, please click here for suggestions and guidance.

Upon request, we can even organize transport to/from the Florence Peretola (Vespucci) airport or the Santa Maria Novella (SMN) train station in Florence for an additional fee.

Upon Arrival

Once you arrive in Florence, AEF will offer an orientation at the school to show you the classrooms and other resources that are available to you. We will also organize a benvenuto/welcome session where you can meet and get to know the staff. There will be a community building activity organized by AEF that will allow you to meet and interact with students that are enrolled in other programs. Various community engagement opportunities will be available to you throughout your time with AEF.

During the Semester/Your Semester Experience



AEF will provide a transfer service to Florence airport or to the train station upon request (additional charges may apply).
