Your questions deserve answers

Amina and I receive lots of questions about SAIS Bologna. Some come from prospective candidates who may have just started trawling for information about graduate schools. Others come from admitted candidates.

An important part of our job is to make sure the questioners get the answers they deserve. That's not really that difficult, especially as we enjoy our interaction with candidates and also our work at SAIS.

We'd be amiss, however, if we didn't make sure candidates know about repositories of information about our program that are very accessible and very comprehensive.

First, there is our website. There is a wealth of information on our curriculum, the admissions process, students, faculty and alumni. It's the first stop for those with questions about SAIS Bologna.

(The site is in the process of being overhauled. The new site will be unveiled later this year and will include numerous improvements.)

Within the website is our catalog. The booklet was written during the 2011-12 academic year, but much of the information will not go out of date once our current class graduates on May 26. In the catalog you'll find information on life at SAIS Bologna, the courses, the faculty and admissions.

For more of an inside look, there is the guide for incoming students. It's true to its title, but prospective candidates who are still hungry for information after browsing the website and the catalog will want to look at the guidebook.

As our followers know, we are active on Facebook and also on Twitter (@SAISBolognaBlog).

And let's not forget ... this Admissions Journal.

Finally, Amina and I are always glad to handle questions. We can be reached at, by phone at +39 051 29 17 811 or via Skype at jhubc.admissions.
