Study Abroad in Spring 2008

This was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I studied abroad my junior year and met so many amazing people in my program from all over the US. I didn't take any German before going, but took German as one of my classes when I was there - it was very helpful. The other classes were fairly easy and I only had class from M-Th so it was nice for traveling on the weekends. (You also have to think about your main goals in studying abroad, because I was more interested in the experience/traveling rather than classes).

Austria is also centrally located so it made traveling easy to so many countries - I visited 10 the whole semester. The included trips were great and so much fun! I also loved that there was a 2 week spring break.

The housing was also perfect. I stayed at St Sebastian and it was close to everything - and walking here is not a problem at all because of the great weather and beauty of Salzburg!

The only negative I can really think of is how they did the meal allowances compared to other programs. Maybe they have changed this? I basically cooked all my meals just due to the cost of food/eating out. I could go on and on on how wonderful of an experience studying abroad is - Salzburg was amazing!

I couldn't have asked for anything better

Salzburg was the perfect place to study abroad because it is so cental answer I also liked that it was "off the beaten path". Also the cost of living was much better than in big cities such as vienna or london. The aifs program was great; I thought one of the best parts was that the group size was 36, which is big enough that you're bounid to find people that you really get along with, but small enough that you r eady get to know everybody without feeling forced to spend too much time with them.i would definitely recom
mend this program.
