AIFS in London Resident Director, Summer Program

AIFS Resident Director

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.

Housing and Meals

Student Residence

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

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 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.
