Admissions at John Cabot University

Student Enrollment Profile

As an American liberal arts university located outside of the United States, JCU’s student body reflects our commitment to building an international academic community composed of both full-time degree-seeking students and visiting students, that fosters intellectual freedom and integrity.  

It is by bringing together degree-seeking students from over 70 countries with our visiting American and international students that we create a unique student body that thrives in the vibrant, city of Rome.

JCU’s multilingual and culturally diverse community surrounds us with opportunities to observe, learn, be innovative and creative, and build extended personal networks that will create value for the future.  It is here that we have the opportunity to collaborate with others who at first may seem different until we discover our commonalities. This university community experience distinguishes us as we enter a world where transnational issues present an ever-greater need for mutual understanding and civil discourse.
