Here are just a few of the unique opportunities you can find abroad this spring:
5. Intern or volunteer at the Cannes Film Festival
Spring semester coincides with the world famous Cannes Film Festival which runs for 2 weeks in May. AIFS students receive a ‘Cannes cinephile’ pass, allowing them to see all the films presented at the Festival in different movie theaters throughout the city.
But students also have the opportunity to volunteer or intern for the duration of the Festival. Past internship placements have been included a U.S production company, an international film sales company, various media outlets and more. Students can also volunteer to work at the exclusive dinner gala organized by amfAR (American Foundation for AIDS research) which is attended by celebrities and famous names from the world of fashion, music and business.
4. Study fashion in Florence
For students studying fashion or business, Florence is the perfect place to learn about the history and business of fashion. Combine an Italian language course with Fashion and Media, Italian Fashion, and Fashion Marketing and Merchandising. Or complement your studies with a course in art history or culture like Introduction to Italian Art or Made in Italy: Symbols of Italian Identity from Espresso to Ferrari.
