Johns Hopkins SAIS accepts a limited number of part-time, non-degree students for study during the fall and spring semesters. 

Through interactive and communicative language activities in and beyond the classroom, students are given the opportunity to build, develop, and enhance their Persian skills.

Placement exams are offered every semester before the beginning of language classes, and students are eligible to take a proficiency exam if they have completed the fourth semester of language instruction at SAIS.

The Portuguese Language Program offers courses at all levels, from Novice through Advanced levels. The program follows a communicative, content-based approach to language learning.

Pre-Term is a full-time program that provides the opportunity for incoming students to get a jump-start on their study of economics, quantitative reasoning, or English. Students can re-acclimate to the academic world while meeting fellow classmates, deans, and recent alumni during informal events.

Pre-term at SAIS Europe provides students the opportunity to settle into Bologna early, learn some Italian, and fulfill part of their economics or quantitative reasoning requirement. For non-native English-speaking students, it is an ideal time to improve English skills, particularly academic writing, before starting the year. In addition, pre-term affords students returning to university the chance to re-acclimate to the academic world while meeting fellow classmates and professors.

Global Career Services offers more than 35 highly marketable Professional Skills Courses each year, including several online courses which are also available during the summer and the winter inter-session.  Courses taught on campus are open to current students, and to alumni on a space-available basis. 

The PPP Initiative seeks to address how developed and emerging economies can provide a complex array of public services with limited publicly financed operational capacity. The Initiative includes teaching, research, and advisory programs.
