We encourage parents, families, and friends to visit their students while they are abroad; it’s a wonderful opportunity to see and understand your students’ experience, and get to know a city from a local perspective.
We encourage parents, families and friends to plan their visits after the first few weeks of a program’s start. This allows students to attend orientation, get settled in their housing, meet their new friends, and begin their courses successfully and independently. Also please note that, out of respect for all housemates, SAI housing does not allow overnight guests. SAI U.S. and on-site staff are happy to answer any questions that parents or guardians have about visiting an SAI city. We have put together guides to visiting each SAI city, which we hope you will find helpful.
