Exchanges between the Florence, Mölndal and the Jersey City studios will be frequent during the academic year. Students and faculty will travel between branches to spend a trimester or year studying abroad without experiencing any difference whatsoever in methodology, curriculum or teaching style. This offers students from the U.S. an important opportunity to experience Florence and Mölndal, live among its architectural masterpieces, and visit the museums and galleries important to the classical tradition. At the same time, thanks to our university status, Florence Academy students will earn U.S. college credit for their coursework done at any of our three locations.
