LIVING IN ROME
Located in Rome, in the historic center, the Saint Louis College of Music constitutes, thanks to its location, a natural source of attraction for international students who wish to carry out part of their studies abroad.
Saint Louis is in fact composed of 4 locations all of them positioned in the full city centre, walking distance one from each other and a stone's throw from the major artistic attractions of the capital: the Colosseum, the Imperial Forums, St. Peter's, the Spanish Steps are all within walking distance!
Vivere a Roma consente agli studenti la possibilità di beneficiare di una delle più belle aree della città, dei suoi servizi e della sua attiva vita sociale e culturale, mentre studiano e progrediscono nel loro percorso didattico. L’influenza di una Città d’Arte come Roma è un fattore di grande forza nella crescita culturale e artistica di un giovane.
Rome offre molto agli studenti in visita ed in particolare per giovani motivati a diventare musicisti professionisti: i concerts and live events of the highest level are on the agenda, as well as a wide range of small and medium clubs open to all kinds of music programming. But this diverse offer can also be confusing and overwhelming! And that's why Saint Louis helps the student network be aware of everything that's going on in the city.
All basic information regarding accommodation, moving to Rome, etc. is provided by the International Office before the student's departure, so that he or she does not feel "lost" when arriving in Rome.
A whole day, theInternational Orientation Day, is dedicated to the orientation of newly arrived international students. During this day the new students get to know the teachers, the staff of the international office and are welcomed by the already existing international student community, with a guided tour of Rome and an aperitif to immediately establish a direct and informal knowledge.
Saint Louis also organizes students concerts (Lab on the Road, Summer e Winter Gigs, Simply the Best, etc.) and events throughout the year: these are aimed both at giving students the opportunity to perform repeatedly on real stages and in front of a real audience and to help students network and meet each other, becoming friends and exchanging opinions on music and beyond.
An excellent additional support tool in this regard is certainly provided by the Buddy System.
