    AIFS London: Life Changing Experience
    07/24/2015

    Choosing to study abroad with AIFS was the best decision I ever made! The location in Kensington was absolutely beautiful and very accessible to the rest of central London. I loved the fact that there were several bus stops and a tube station nearby, it made travelling around the city very easy and convenient. The city itself was amazing, never had I ever seen so much history and diversity in one place. The night life, shopping, museums, there is always something new to do and see.

    The office staff was extremely helpful, the professors very knowledgeable and all the students got along great! To this day(8 years later) I'm still very close with several people on my program.

    My time in London with AIFS was so fantastic that when I returned home, I changed my major and transferred to a University in Central London. I finished my undergraduate degree in London, married my British boyfriend(who I met on the program) and ended up living in London for the next 6 years!!

    I will always remember the summer I spent studying abroad with AIFS and will forever be grateful for the passion of travel and culture the program instilled in me.

    If you want to study abroad, I highly recommend AIFS!!!

    How could this program be improved?

    London is expensive, especially living in the heart of Kensington! I know that the program can't change that, but budgeting is very difficult. On my program, back in 2007, we didn't have a lot of planned activities outside the classroom. I went to a couple of Musicals arranged by AIFS and a did a boat ride down the Thames River. All other activities were arranged by us(the students).

    Best 18 Months of My Life
    07/14/2015

    I had a once in a life time experience in Australia thanks to the get Australia program!!The advice and support that was given from start to finish was invaluable from both the London and Sydney office ! they gave me the confidence to be able to travel to the other side of the world and were highly response to any questions or queries I had whilst I were there! I would highly recommend this program!

    How could this program be improved?

    For me there is nothing that could be improved as they were upfront about everything and customer service was top!

    Great Program but Expensive
    06/23/2015

    This AIFS summer program kept us busy, which was a good thing for me. I really enjoyed the flight package to London, as we got to spend 2 days there and meet some of our classmates. We had excursions most weekends and classes were decent. One of the classes got out at 7pm which was a huge inconvenience because stores close early here.

    How could this program be improved?

    The cost. It is rather expensive for the short amount of time that we were there. They also did not sit us all down to meet one another.

    one of my best decisions ever!
    06/16/2015

    The headquarter of AIFS in Sydney was a great point to start from. I got great support for looking for a job, finding hostels and getting helpful tips for travelling. You can also book some trips in the office or just give a call and they will help you.
    Australia is a great country for living and travelling! Don't spend to much time in the cities. Get a car, find some mates to travel with and start your adventure! The north and north-west of OZ with all the national parks is really great to visit.
    Get your stuff and have a great time! Wish you all the best :)

    Was in Australia from Nov 14 to June 15. I worked mostly on farms and made good experience. Worked on different farms and made completely different experience. Had also a really good travel time and perfect support from the AIFS travel desk! Awesome Year!

    How could this program be improved?

    I think there are many things which works quite well, but more contacts to different farms and different types of jobs would be much more helpful.
