March 28, 2018 Semester To Remember

September 22, 2017 Best Month Ever!

August 31, 2017 Can I Go Back Now?
I am way more independent, confident, and capable in general. I'm a family-oriented homebody, and studying abroad showed me what it's like to travel and live on your own. It really changed how I live and my goals for the future. It was absolutely worth it. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
It was so worthwhile. I gained so many new great friends, a new appreciation for learning, a taste of the world, and I got to jump into traveling the world. - Ohio Northern University View Entire Review
January 23, 2017 Semester To Remember
I learned how to be more carefree. I was a massive planner before going abroad. If being abroad teaches you anything, it's that you have to go with the flow sometimes. Things aren't always going to work out how you planned them, but sometimes the way they do work out is even better. - Florida Atlantic University View Entire Review

January 03, 2017 Perfection
I have absolutely no regrets from studying abroad. It gave me international travel experience as well as the ability to assimilate and adapt to different cultures at a fast pace. With any job, this is a highly valuable skill to have on a resume. Additionally, I have gained copious amounts of self confidence. - Minnesota State University, Mankato View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with AIFS: London - Richmond, The American International University in London
I learned more about myself and grew more than I ever thought possible. I was always shy and quiet and was extremely anxious about making new friends abroad and through studying abroad and AIFS I made some of my best friends. I was also able to go on trips with people strangers and come back as friends. I learned that I can do... - Marywood University View Entire Review
This program was incredibly worthwhile because not only did I get to learn photography, see a beautiful city, and grow as a student, but I learned about cultural differences, independence, and myself. I am confident that my resume will be boosted by this experience abroad and that I will always be able to use the skills I learn... - Towson University View Entire Review
Past Review Summer In London
You learn a lot, become more independent, and it's fun - Ohio State University - Columbus View Entire Review
I gained much more independence and self confidence. Before I left, I thought that Washington was where I was going to live for the rest of my life. After living somewhere else, even if for only three weeks, I realized that it's a big world out there, and I can live wherever I want. - Western Washington University View Entire Review
Kind of. - Drake University View Entire Review
I learned about different cultures, making friends of different ethnicities and cultural backgrounds (not just american), and learning how others have lived. One girl ran away from war to come to Londong. An amazing story and realize how precious life really is. Also, if first time on your own, learn more responsibility and in... - University of Missouri - Saint Louis View Entire Review
Definitely. I learned so much more about the world and about myself. The experience was totally worth while and I am so glad I didn't let my nerves get in the way! - Quinnipiac University View Entire Review
January 02, 2018 Best Location Possible
I learned how to be independent and how to deal with situations that do not go as I expected, whether it be missing a flight/train or being homesick when I didn't think I would be. I had to adapt and make the best of each situation and learn to live in the moment. - University of Minnesota - Duluth View Entire Review
I was able to connect with a different lifestyle and learn about different cultures. I loved it. - Oklahoma State University - Stillwater View Entire Review
I gained an understanding of what it is like to live outside of the seemingly closed off United States and experiencing the amazingly diverse city of London all while being able to cheaply travel to other cities in Europe and experience their history and culture. - Salem State University View Entire Review
I learned a lot about being independent, making friends, international travel, foreign currency, public transportation, British culture, and so much more. It was the best experience of my life and I miss it so much every day! - Texas A&M University - College Station View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with AIFS London - Richmond, The American International University in London
I gained an appreciation for new cultures and a love for traveling throughout Europe. It was definitely the best decision I could have made and I hope to go back as soon as I can. - California Lutheran University View Entire Review
It was definitely worth while- I am trying to figure out the next time I get to go back to visit! I really learned how to adapt to new surroundings and experience everyday life outside of my comfort zone. - University of Arkansas - Fayetteville View Entire Review
November 30, 2015 Best Bang For Your Buck!
I learned more about my ability to be independent and navigate myself with confidence around a huge city- completely worthwhile, once in a lifetime experience! - University of South Carolina - Columbia View Entire Review
Words cannot explain how grateful I am to have embarked on this adventure. I was so nervous as all of you will be but it was such a great adventure.
