Questions & Answers

Hi Maria, Thank you for reaching out to AIFS Study Abroad! With our programs, you will need to pay the program fee, which would cover your tuition, a meal plan, insurance, cultural & social activities, excursions, and on-site staff. In some of our locations we do offer single rooms, but for the most part they are very limited and often require a supplemental fee. I hope that helps! If you have any...

Wonderful Experience

AIFS Paris is a great program that I would highly recommend. The Paris staff was excellent and made sure everything ran smoothly. AIFS does an excellent job with host family placements as well. ILCF was great. The teachers were very helpful, and by the end of the semester, I could tell I had made a lot of progress.

Yes, I recommend this program

Take Me Back to Paris

Obviously, Paris is amazing. But it would have been less amazing without the support of AIFS. They set me up in an amazing homestay in the 14eme, helped me register for all of my classes, planned opportunities to fully expose us to Paris, and overall added to the amazing time I had in Europe and ultimately, abroad.

How can this program be improved?
The Paris program is different because there are two schools that students attend through AIFS. The Sorbonne and ILCF kids didn't get to know each other extremely well because we arrived at different times in Paris. Our activities included both schools, though!
Yes, I recommend this program
