AIFS Resident Director

Tony Langan


Dia dhuit! Hello! I am Tony and I am the AIFS Resident Director in Dublin. I have worked with AIFS for three years running programs in Dublin, London and Cape Town. I got my degree in Economics and History from NUI Maynooth here in Ireland and studied for two years in the U.S., one at the University of Miami and another at the University of Mississippi. I am originally from just outside Dublin and love meeting new people and showing them around this great city. I'm looking forward to assisting you throughout your stay, arranging an orientation program, social and cultural events and introducing you to the local culture and community. I know that you will meet great people here, learn a lot and I am sure you go home planning your next visit. See you in Dublin!

The Resident Director provides academic advice, introduces you to the community and handles communication with the University.

Housing and Meals

Housing in a shared accommodation is included. Living with other AIFS students, you will share a double room and have access to communal facilities. Accommodations are fully furnished and include a comfortable living area and a fully- equipped kitchen. Linen and towels are provided as are access to a washer dryer and free Wi-Fi Internet access.

A meal allowance is included to subsidize the cost of purchasing lunch on campus Monday to Friday.

  • A guided walking tour of Dublin
