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.

AIFS has a lot to offer. The more I talked to American students from other programs, the more I realized that AIFS was clearly the best choice.

This program opened my eyes to a culture and society I knew very little about. I made great friends and had a fabulous time during the process. I would do it all over again in a heartbeat.

I would recommend this program to other prospective students. It was well organized with excellent accommodations and wonderful faculty. A once in a lifetime experience!
