AIFS in Salamanca Resident Director, Semester Programs

AIFS Resident Director

Gaye Michaels

Phone: 34 (923) 26 98 91
Email: gmichaels@aifs.co.uk

¡Hola! I have coordinated study abroad programs at the University of Salamanca since 1987 and have been working as AIFS Resident Director since 1993. I received my BA from SUNY Cortland in 1983 and spent my junior and senior years of undergraduate study at the University of Salamanca.

As Resident Director, I am your counselor, administrator and friend. I provide guidance and support during this program full of excitement, adventure and education. You will find me in the AIFS office, in the heart of Salamanca, next to the Plaza Mayor and a 5-minute walk from the University.

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.
