AIFS in London Resident Director, Summer Program

AIFS Resident Director

Hello! I have been working for AIFS in London since 2000 helping support students on our study abroad programs. My degree is in American Studies, and I have spent time studying abroad in the U.S. and have traveled extensively in Europe. Away from work I enjoy skiing, running, going to concerts, and theater. I know first-hand how study abroad can be a life-changing experience, and I look forward to helping you make the most of your time in the wonderful city of London.

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.

Housing and Meals

Student Residence

  • Students are housed in shared rooms in residence halls or apartments in the Kensington area.

Meals

  • Meal allowance to subsidize the cost of purchasing meals and groceries.

Cultural Activities

Learning does not begin or end in the classroom. To help you get a true taste of British life and culture the AIFS staff organize an active social and cultural program. A guided city tour is included in the program fee – see Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and the Tower of London.

Other events are offered which are subsidized from student fees so students pay a much lower rate than they would if they bought tickets directly from local theaters and tour agencies.

Last year’s activities included:

  • Walking tours including Black London, Street Art and Harry Potter
  • Rugby and cricket matches
  • Day trips to Stonehenge and Salisbury, Oxford, Bath, Stratford Upon Avon and Brighton
  • River boat cruise along the Thames
  • Performance at Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre
  • Theater performances of Wicked, Matilda, Les Misérables, and the Woman in Black
  • Ballet performance of Cinderella
  • Traditional afternoon tea

Please note that students may need to pay a small additional fee for some of the activities above.

Besides arranged activities, there are a wide range of events taking place in and around London during the summer, such as Trooping the Color, the Ascot races, Wimbledon tennis tournament, Henley Royal Regatta, rock concerts, theater in the parks and much, much more. Information on these events will be made available to students upon arrival in London.
