Choosing the Right City for You

Viña del Mar

Viña del Mar, located on the central Pacific coastline, is known as the “Garden City” for its palm tree lined boulevards and beautiful parks. As Chile’s premier beach town, it is considered the ideal home for college students, combining the safety and charm of a small community town with the modern amenities and lively atmosphere of a city. Improve your Spanish, learn about a new culture and experience the hospitality that “Viña” is famed for by spending a semester there with AIFS.

Social identity & access

One of the best things you can do before departure is enter into the journey knowing that your time abroad will be unique to this experience. The resources, community and support available to you when abroad will likely be different as well. In order to help you prepare for your experience, we have compiled many resources about social identity and access in specific locations abroad. Your program staff will also provide you with more details pre-departure and during orientation.

I really liked the academic program. The advisors and professors were always a big help whenever I needed it and my courses were challenging, but enjoyable. I am returning for a second semester.

Study abroad has already brought me so much. You’ll grow and see yourself in a whole new light. You will be encompassed by the rich culture of your destination and be intrigued to see it all. The hardest part is just making the decision to go, and then stepping on that plane. But after you do… you’ll be so glad you did.

The program was excellent. I really felt like I was home. The program did a great job transitioning us and helping us whenever we needed help.

I fell in love with Viña del Mar and my host family. This was a wonderful experience.
