Open Houses and Information Sessions: Let us help you make a decision

Earlier this month, applicants to SAIS learned the outcome of their applications. 

Each year, the Admissions Committee is faced with the difficult task of selecting the next class. The quality of applications this year was very high and this made the work of the Committee arduous.

We want to thank all our applicants. For those who did not make it, we want to reiterate that this is by no means a reflection of your potential. If you would like feedback, we would encourage you to get in touch with us after May 2. You can reach us at 

Congratulations to those who received admission. This is a great achievement and we look forward to welcoming you to SAIS Europe for the 2016-17 academic year.

Now you have an offer in hand, what's next?

We want to draw your attention to a few events that will help you learn more about SAIS and SAIS Europe.

Choosing graduate school is an important decision: we're here to help you make the best decision.

For this purpose, we would like to invite you to attend one or more events.

SAIS in Bologna and SAIS in DC will host Open House events. These will be perfect opportunities to meet students, faculty and staff and to learn about academic and student life.

The Open House in Washington, DC, will be on April 6, 2016. If you would like to attend, please register here. If you're in the DC area, or you can easily travel to DC, we would strongly encourage you to attend. The event is geared towards students admitted at both the DC and the Bologna campuses.

Following the Open House, students admitted to SAIS Europe are invited to a Cocktail Reception with SAIS Europe Alumni on April 7. If you want to attend this event, please register here.

The Open House at SAIS Europe in Bologna, will be on April 11. Click here to register. Some current students have offered to host visitors from out of town. If you would like to be hosted by a current student, be sure to indicate it in the registration form.

We understand that many of our admitted students will not be able to make it to the events listed above. However, we want to ensure that they receive as much information as possible before the deadlines for enrollments.

On March 25 at 3:30 PM Italian time, we will hold an online information session for students admitted to SAIS Europe. Click on this page for the log-in details. On the same page, you will find the date and time of the other information session.

We also stand ready to answer your questions via email as well as over the phone or via Skype. Our email is; our telephone number is +39 051 29 17 811; and our Skype handle is jhubc.admissions

We hope to engage with you at one or more of the above events and we hope to welcome you to Bologna in the summer.
