All-Inclusive Study Abroad Programs
If you're looking at other study abroad organizations, you will notice that many program elements are not included in their fee. From pre-departure advising through the return flight home, AIFS' all-inclusive programs take care of all of the details so that your student gets the most out of their experience abroad with the least out-of-pocket cost - guaranteed in U.S. dollars.
(Please check specific programs for details)
Programs for the summer, semester and academic year at top international universities with transcripts provided for transfer credit.
In many locations, students will have the option of living in a carefully chosen homestay, independently or in a residence hall.
The cost of food can add up quickly! That's why a meal plan comes standard with every AIFS program. Whether it's restaurant vouchers, meals in the student cafeteria or home-cooked meals from their host family, your student will taste the local flavor with an included meal plan.
Optional AIFS Flight Package
AIFS is the only study abroad organization to offer a flight package that features low-cost round trip airfare from 26 cities nationwide and door-to-door transfers abroad to ensure your student arrives safely.
Since your insurance coverage likely does not include studying abroad, all participants on AIFS programs receive comprehensive insurance from Cultural Insurance Services International (CISI), a leading insurance provider and sister company of AIFS - also used by many other study abroad agencies. Coverage includes an insurance and assistance package including 24/7 emergency support and medical and baggage insurance.
On-Site Support Network
Our staff on-location provides guidance on issues relating to academics, language, cultural differences, health and more. Each site has a Resident Director, a permanent AIFS employee, who serves as a liaison between the students, the university, host families and AIFS. Their local knowledge and expertise enables your student to get the most out of their experience.
From the moment your student applies, AIFS support services provides pre-departure assistance, academic advice, financial aid transfer, visa assistance and so much more.
Learning does not end with the classroom. From cooking classes to 3-day stopovers, every program includes extracurricular activities and trips that give your student more of the local flavor while complementing their academic studies.
