Study Abroad is a Must
Submitted by Sara Whitman - Hofstra University | October 19, 2017
Studying abroad in Australia was the best decision I ever made and I am glad I went through AIFS. AIFS was very receptive when it came to pre-departure information and class registration. I loved having an AIFS representative right on campus, who was super knowledgeable and friendly. She scheduled a few activities during the semester for us, which was included in the program. My favorite was the Brazilian Barbeque.
Perth is the perfect city for college students. It is small, yet has loads of eateries and nightlife options. King’s Park offers is nature retreat that gives a spectacular view of the city. I will never forget my first time there and seeing breathtaking Perth. Public transportation is clean, cheap and easy, especially when you register through a university to get a student discount. Perth is very close to the beach as well, so there are things to enjoy for all types of people. Although it is the most remote capital city in the world, I never felt at a loss of things to do.
Studying abroad is a must. If you are feeling skeptical, check out AIFS and see the programs they have to offer. I do not think you will be disappointed.
A Year in Limerick
Submitted by Erika Farr - Augustana University | October 17, 2017
Studying abroad with AIFS in Limerick was the best decision I could have made. AIFS took care of my housing, fights, meal plans, and helped with anything administrative items. Between the cultural excursions and the AIFS staff on site that went above and beyond to make sure we were safe and having the best time possible. The cultural excursions to places like the Aran Islands, Cork, and the Killarney National Park allowed us to learn and experience deep history of the country. All of the AIFS students lived in the same village and made it easy to head to a similar face with any questions or to make your way into the city. The campus is along the River Shannon with wonderful walking/running paths that will take you to the city. The University itself is big and provides over 70 clubs or societies to get involved in and a wide variety of classes offered. The international office on campus provided support to me before, during, and after my time abroad. Limerick has less of a touristy feel to it and provides everything from the shops you will need to museums and castles to visit. I would highly suggest studying abroad in Limerick with AIFS as they truly know the country and provide support every step along the way.
The best summer of my life
Submitted by Sara Seale - IESA Paris | September 22, 2017
I wish I could rate this program higher than a 10. The organization was incredible and on the ball, they were so well organized and the whole process was so easy. All I had to do was get on the plane and go. They handled everything from my housing, to my food, to cultural activities, to enrolling us in amazing courses. Summer 2015 will always be very special to me. I met some friends that I still talk to on a regular basis and have since graduated from my American university and begun my MBA at an international school back in Paris.
Best semester of my life
Submitted by Carlina Tavarez - Richmond, VA | September 21, 2017
I absolutely adored my time with AIFS in Barcelona. I was given an amazing apartment in the center of the city that was close to everything one needs to be happy. The classes were informative and fun while also being challenging. The director that worked with my group in Barcelona helped us with literally everything we needed. Thy also planned a ton of other cool activities for us to do as a group on the weekends. I had the best time of my life in those 5 months.
Studying Abroad in Rome!
Submitted by Taeler Morris - University of Houston | September 21, 2017
I had an amazing time studying abroad with AIFS! The pre-arranged programs and activities for us were great and I felt very immersed in the culture and truly felt that I was living like "the Romans do". While it was an overall great experience, I did have a hard time adjusting to the temperature and lack of air conditioning which I was not expecting, but fans and cool clothing definitely came in handy. The excursion we took abroad were great, and they included interesting trips to museums and archaeological sites. The excursion that was my favorite was probably the excursion to Naples, Capri, and Pompeii because of all of the different sites we were able to see and experience. Venice was also amazing, but I wish we had more time there. I would highly recommend studying abroad to anyone who is thinking it, because it was an experience that truly changed my life and I want to go back abroad as soon as possible.
