AIFS in Granada Resident Director

Noelia Marin Munoz

Phone: (34) 958 222 418

¡Hola! I have been working with visiting students in Granada since 2007. I studied at the University myself so am very familiar with student life here in Granada. I also spent a year studying abroad in England which gave me an understanding of how to adjust to living in a different culture. My job is to help facilitate your immersion into the Spanish language and culture; ensuring your study abroad is a fun and safe learning experience. I love watching how students change during their time here. Upon arrival, you will continually ask questions. By the end of the summer you will be independent, confident and knowledgeable citizens of the world and teaching me things I didn’t know! The AIFS office is located in “Puerta Real”, the very center of Granada. It is a 5-minute walk from the University building. Drop by and tell me about something wonderful you have discovered in my favorite city!

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.
