"We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths."
In a competitive world, practical experience is an invaluable addition to classroom learning. AIFS internship programs provide global experience, practical exposure to the demands of specific jobs and develop professional and personal skills.
At AIFS, we support all students in their study abroad journey, regardless of their gender, race, religion, age, physical ability, or sexual orientation.
The AIFS Abroad Team continues to work with our onsite staff, insurance and global risk management resources and partner universities abroad to implement and modify a flexible plan which reflects ever-changing realities of running a program in a pandemic.
