Attention to students, suggestions and useful advice. Attending a SoA Academy course means living a unique human and professional experience, which has to be planned in detail. We’ll do everything in our power to facilitate your life here, to let you save money, to help you group and take advantage of every moment lived in Italy.
RELAX AREA & KITCHEN
Here at SoA Academy we work hard. This is why we also have some areas to have fun and relax in. On the terrace – particularly loved by smokers – you can enjoy the sun before sitting again in front of your computer. In the inner relax area, furnished with comfortable armchairs and a sofa, you can have a hot coffee or a cold drink. If you want to have some hot tea or heat something up to eat, you can also use our kitchen equipped with a kettle, a microwave oven and a refrigerator.
Travelling is a serious thing. Don’t be caught unprepared! Details make the real difference.
