AIFS in Prague Resident Director, Academic Year and Semester Programs

AIFS Resident Director

Jenny Pena

Phone: +420 224 162 006
Email: mleidecker@aifs.co.uk

Ahoj! My name is Jenny and I will be overseeing your stay in Prague. Originally born in the Philippines but growing up in Canada, I have called the Czech Republic my home for the last 5 years. Just like what you are about to embark on, I have studied abroad during my undergrad year in Spain, which sparked my love for the European lifestyle, culture and people. I have been working with AIFS Prague for almost as long as my stay here in the Czech Republic. I look forward to helping you make the most of your time in this magical place!

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

AIFS Campus Staff with First Aid Training

Because health and safety are top priorities at AIFS, at least one member of the staff at this campus has taken a first aid course in order to be available to help any student until a doctor or nurse can provide help. This is just one of many services that we provide to our students.
