Choosing the Right City for You

Start the year in one of the oldest cities in the world, home to numerous museums and attractions. Declared a city by Julius Caesar, Portugal’s capital has a rich cultural history and is recognized as an alpha-level global city because of its international interconnectedness in industries from financial services and the media to tourism. Lisbon is also just a short distance away from many Blue Flag beaches, which attract surfers from around the world.

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 would absolutely recommend this program. The trip has been such a positive experience. Wonderful program!

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.

This program was excellent! AIFS was one of the best experiences of my life.
