“They attend to everything... from the time we are greeted at the airport with individualized Orientation packets and apartment locations for both myself and the students, to our day of departure, not one detail is forgotten. The staff at AIFS were invaluable and I would never think of my experience in any other way.”

About AIFS Partnership Programs

AIFS Partnership Programs are a division of the American Institute For Foreign Study (AIFS). AIFS was founded in 1964. Since then, over 1.5 million students have participated in our educational and cultural exchange programs. Over 6,000 American college students study abroad each year with the AIFS College Division—approximately 2,000 of these are on customized, faculty-led programs organized through the Partnership Programs Division.

AIFS Partnership Programs offer a unique study abroad experience. Your home institution teaches its own academic program abroad, using its own faculty, curriculum and style. AIFS Partnership works closely with your home institution to coordinate support arrangements leaving students and faculty free to enjoy their overseas experience without concern for the complex, time-consuming practical arrangements that a successful study abroad program demands.
