Study Abroad in London: Living Abroad

Housing and Meals

Student Residence

During your time abroad you will live in central London, close to the study center and to the famous Kensington Gardens, Natural History Museum, and West End theater district. Housing will be in shared rooms in a residence hall or student apartment building. Internet access is included in all AIFS housing.

Meals

Allowance worth $1,000 to subsidize the cost of purchasing meals and groceries. Students can opt out for a reduced program fee.

Cultural Travel

With its extensive rail services and five international airports London is the perfect starting point from which to explore the U.K. and cities of Europe. You will find low-cost airlines offering inexpensive round-trip flights to mainland Europe along with train and bus options for travel around the U.K. The AIFS staff are always available to help you make plans and share practical travel and safety advice.

Volunteering

AIFS can arrange volunteering placements for students wishing to take an active role in the local community and make a meaningful contribution during their stay in London. Placements may be with schools, charities or NGOs - contact the Resident Director for more information. This is an excellent way to meet local people and gain a deeper insight into British culture and London life.

AIFS in London Resident Director, Academic Year and Semester Programs

AIFS Resident Director

Gerrard McAteer

Phone: (44) 20 7368 8501
Email: gmcateer@aifs.co.uk

For almost twenty years I have been directing programs in the four most popular locations for U.S. study abroad students (France, Spain, Italy and the UK). I have been lucky enough to live in Paris, Barcelona and Florence but London is my capital city. I was brought up on the outskirts of Manchester in England before leaving to study engineering in the Midlands. During my college years I spent the summer months working with foreign students in rural France and Massachusetts, U.S. It was during my travels I discovered all about the world of studying and working abroad and that led to my career with AIFS. Only two out of every ten American students study abroad, so simply being on this program makes you stand out. Myself and my team will make sure you make the most of your study abroad opportunity and look forward to welcoming you to 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.
