AIFS in Prague Resident Director, Academic Year and Semester Programs

AIFS Resident Director

Maike Leidecker

AIFS Prague Office
Vodickova 28
110 00 Prague 1, Czech Republic

Phone: +420 224 162 006

Dobry den! I have been working with AIFS in various locations since 2010. Now, I call Prague my home. Originally from Berlin, Germany, I received an MA degree in British and North American Studies from Potsdam University. As an exchange student, I spent a year living in the USA, where I acquired first-hand knowledge of the life and culture in America. In my free time, I enjoy hiking, baking, the cafés and galleries of Prague, and traveling.

You will find me in the AIFS office, right in the center of Prague, a short walk from the University classroom buildings and the main attractions of the city.

Prague is a beautiful city that has something for everyone with its amazing architecture, cafés, and variety of art, music and history. 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.
