Freshman: International Events

Two International Students attend event at SAIC

SAIC Events Around the Globe

As a prospective international student, you may not have the opportunity to visit the US schools to which you apply. The good news is that every year, the School of the Art Institute of Chicago (SAIC) travels to many countries around the world to make personal connections with you and your family.

Meet with an SAIC representative at your school, at an event in the city near you, or by scheduling a one-on-one meeting at a location that is not far from home. Each opportunity provides you with the chance to learn more about SAIC and to receive constructive advice about your plans and how to make studying in Chicago a reality.

If you are interested in attending one of these events, please register below.
