Your chance(s) to learn more about SAIS

Summer is over and the weather is turning chilly. That means recruiting season is upon us.

It's when we reach out to as many prospective students as possible. How?

Over the next few months we’ll be holding information sessions both in person and online. We hope as many of you who are thinking of applying as possible will be able to attend one or more of the events.

If you cannot -- we know we cannot see all of you in person and that the online sessions may not work with your schedules -- Nelson and I are always available to speak to prospective applicants. You can reach us via email at, Skype (jhubc.admissions) or the telephone (+39 051 29 17 811).
