What AIFS Alumni Say

The best times of my life...


"The 6 weeks I spent studying abroad in London will always be considered one of the best times of my life. I grew so much as a person, as a student, and as an artist. I discovered what it is I want to do after college and realized that I am doing the right thing for my career goals. I could not have made that discovery if I had not gone to London through AIFS."


-Madisyn G., AIFS in London alum


Amazing experience ...


"AIFS London was an amazing experience and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience big city life in the quiet area of Kensington. I couldn't imagine a better city to experience amazing music, theatre, and history."


-Anika V., AIFS in London alum
