Absolutely incredible experience

I wasn't quite sure what to think before studying abroad, about how I would fit in or enjoy an overseas country by myself. I have spent a number of years living abroad with my family prior. However, to use a cliche expression, Cannes was literally a life-changing experience for me. The classes and professors were amazing at teaching French, the students I met from around the world were fun to meet and share stories with, and the friends I made are some of my best friends till this day a year later. The food is great in France, most of it came from a grocery store a mile down the road that I fell in love with, but the cafeteria was a fun experience too. Housing in the dorms was incredible, you got to meet and become great friends with all the students there from all over the world, and my room even had a view of the Mediterranean, not to mention it's only a 100 foot walk to the beach.

In addition, I'd like to give special thanks to AIFS and the program director Sandrine who was there and showed us around both the incredible town of Cannes, and on all our excursions, which were better than I could have hoped for by miles. I got to see huge portions of southern France, experience the food, learn the language and converse with people from all over the world, relax, party, study, explore, and really discover myself and what I wanted to do with the rest of college and afterwards. I am now onto the Peace Corps to keep travelling as much as I can! Thanks AIFS!

An unforgettable experience improved by excellent staff

I studied at Humboldt University in Berlin, Germany in January of 2016, and a year later, I still find myself thinking fondly on it and wishing that I could go back! The wonderful staff of AIFS undoubtedly contributed both to how much I enjoyed my time there and how smoothly the transition between countries went. From providing support in traveling to planning a fascinating variety of activities to participate in, AIFS provides its students with opportunities to be as involved as they are comfortable with, and that freedom certainly proved useful. By being able to balance personal adventuring with group activities, I felt as though the staff and fellow students were available to me as resources and as friends, but did not feel as if I was being overwhelmed by being part of the group.

In addition, I was drawn to AIFS by its all-inclusive fee, which included a pass for public transportation and a meal plan among other things. Though the cost of studying abroad is often a daunting factor in the decision to do so, AIFS ensures that you're getting your money's worth, and I was very grateful for the ability to pay one time and get everything I needed. Overall, AIFS is an excellent program with friendly and competent staff, and my decision to study abroad through their program is one that I'm thrilled with to this day.

Perfection

From the very beginning of the application process, to the very end of my flight on the way home, AIFS has been absolutely perfect. The convenience of this AIFS program is something that I have never experienced elsewhere. From booking your flights for you to giving you meals and housing, the AIFS program in London is unprecedented. The location of campus is as central London as it gets and the staff in the United States as well as in London are always responsive, friendly, and made it feel like home. Additionally, AIFS was fantastic in giving several opportunities for travel outside of London such as Bath, Cambridge, Paris, and so much more. I don't have one bad thing to say about this program at all. I would recommend it to anyone at all that is interested in International Education and Studying Abroad. Choose AIFS; you won't regret it.

Best experience ever!!!

AIFS Prague such an amazing program, if you are deciding between which city or program you want to do I have to recommend Prague. The program itself is very inclusive, the AIFS staff provides a lot of services to the students and you don't pay for a lot in the program. The excursions and cultural activities are fun and worth doing, and the classes are very interesting and you learn a lot about this region of the world that you may not learn back in the United States. Prague itself is such an amazing and interesting city. It's very unique among European cities that is still retains all of its historical character that other cities lost during WWII, and it has such a unique and creative culture. There are an endless amount of cafes, restaurants, clubs, and other places to check out. Plus the city itself is beautiful. Czech people are very nice and welcoming even though at first you may find them reserved and not happy, just part of the culture. I've met the most amazing people here and I will keep this experience with me forever.
