Happy Holidays from SAIS Bologna Admissions!

Over the last weeks we've published posts on the admission procedure and the different parts of the application. We tried to cover as many topics as possible to help prospective students with their application.

Do you feel we left something out?

If you do, please comment on this post or send us an email at 

SAIS Bologna will be closed from December 22 to January 5, 2012. During the break we'll have limited access to email. We'll do our best to answer to your questions as soon as possible. But, please bear with us if we don't respond as quickly as we normally would.

We wish all our readers a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

We look forward to keeping in touch in 2012 and to receiving your applications!

Hello, could you please write a post about the possibility of bringing a pet to SAIS BC? Like, is it banned or discouraged? Is there a mandatory quarantine period and are there pet specific stores in Bologna?

Students are free to bring pets to Bologna. As students live in rented apartments, the decision is up to the individual. The European Union sets standards, and it is the responsibility of the pet owner to follow them. This website may be helpful: There is a great deal more information elsewhere on the Internet. If you would like to communicate with a current student who has a pet, please send an email to with your name and contact details. Thanks very much.
