Review Your Program

* Overall educational experience

Academic rigor, intensity, resources, etc.

Similar expectations, the workload was the perfect mix of lectures and field experiences. I actually studied the cities I visited!

* Host Country Program Administration

On-site administration of your program

Very helpful and friendly staff. When I got off the plane, AIFS was there to support. Great mix of free time and structured activities!

* Housing:

How satisfied were you with your living arrangements?

* Food:

Word of advice; experience the culture! The food in Europe will change you palate forever!

* Social & Cultural Integration:

How integrated did you feel with the local culture?

Seeing all of the major sites in each city is the priority of this trip!

* Health Care:

How well were health issues addressed during the program?

* Safety:

I felt safe most of the time, it is an adjustment to take public transportation everywhere, but we always stayed in the nicest/safest parts of the city!

If you could do it all over again would you choose the same program? Yes


* Money: How easily were you able to live on a student's budget?

(1 = not very easy/$200+ on food & personal expenses/week, 2.5 = $100/week, 5 = very easily/minimal cost)
