AIFS in Salzburg Resident Director, January Term Program

AIFS Resident Director

Ingrid Schmidbauer-Stengel

Phone: (46) 662 872 466

Guten Tag! Not sure what that means yet? Don't worry, during your time in Salzburg, you will pick up much more than "hello". After being with AIFS since 1987 I am certain of that!

I am of German-American descent and was born and raised in Indiana. Every year my family and I would visit Germany, Austria, Switzerland and France, which prompted me to study abroad on the AIFS Salzburg program.

During my time as a student, I learned a great deal about Austrians, Austrian culture and the language. I was so taken with this beautiful city that I returned to live here.

While you are in Austria, I will be working hard to ensure all aspects of the program run smoothly and am always happy to give advice on how to get the most out of your time abroad.

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.

Live with other AIFS students and international students in a student residence. The student residence will include:

  • Double room with shared bathroom
  • Access to communal facilities including a kitchen and study room
  • Kitchen supplies and bed linens
  • Coin-operated laundry
Internet access is included in all AIFS housing in Salzburg

Cultural Activities

Learning does not begin or end in the classroom. To help you get a true taste of Austrian culture, various activities will be organized such as:

  • Salzburg city tour
  • Visits to museums and galleries
  • Visit to local pastry shop
  • Visit to local market
  • Visit to an opera or concert

Music Salzburg is the ideal place to pursue an interest in music. You can learn an instrument or deepen your appreciation of an instrument that you play already. AIFS can help arrange lessons with a private tutor. Students are responsible for paying any fees directly to the tutor.
