Summer Studies In Italy 2020 Application Form

Coronavirus Update

As a result of the recent developments in the measures to contain the Covid-19 pandemic, it has, unfortunately, become necessary to cancel the McGill @ La Sapienza Summer School which was scheduled to take place in Rome from June 8 to July 4, 2020. We are confident that the Summer School will return in the summer of 2021


The course of study is aimed to McGill full-time students in good standing. Familiarity with Italian is recommended but not required. Priority will be given to students registered in a Major, or if applicable a Minor, in the School of Religious Studies, in the Department of History and Classical Studies, or in the Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures.  Students in 2nd or 3rd year of their Bachelor Degree will be given preference. Students must have a minimum CGPA of 3.0 to be considered for this program.
