With a total of 21.61 million inhabitants in 2018 spread over an area of 151,940 km2, Florida is the third most populous state in the United States after California and Texas. World-renowned for sports such as tennis and golf, and for tourism thanks to its beaches and entertainment parks, Florida is also a dynamic state with nearly 2.5 million businesses spread throughout its cities. The largest one is Miami with 5.5 million inhabitants, followed by the Tampa Bay Area with 2.4 million inhabitants and Orlando with 1.5 million inhabitants.

Both our campuses are part of the Tampa Bay AreaSt. Petersburg and Clearwater are two halves of a very important tourist destination in the United States. Indeed, if "The Sunshine City" as St. Petersburg is called, is recognized as a major cultural and artistic destination in the Southeastern United States, Clearwater is worldwide known for its beach ranked among the most beautiful ones in the world.

Thus, and although our programs are intense between internships and courses, students will have the opportunity during their free time to take advantage of the many activities offered by the region. They will be able to visit museums, to take a bike and ride in search of street arts or doing water activities such as jetskiing or a dolphin watching cruise! A week's vacation is also included in the program so that students can visit the rest of Florida at their own convenience and expense. They will then be able to go to the theme parks in the area such as Disney World in Orlando, only two hours away. They can also rent a car and drive all the way down to Miami making an early stop at Daytona Beach to see the sunrise, visit Cape Canaveral to see the US space history or visit Key West.
