We appreciate the many AIFS students who took the time to share the impact of their study abroad experience, like AIFS in Barcelona alumna Luzmia L.
“I knew that studying abroad would be one of the best decisions of my life. What I didn’t know is that AIFS would also turn out to be one of my best decisions ever,” states Luzmia. “I can’t emphasize enough how my experience would have been completely different had I gone with another provider. I felt safe at every moment and cared for which is all you can really ask when you’re out in a different continent on your own. Choose AIFS!”
Thank you to AIFS students for sharing their experiences and to GoAbroad.com for honoring our organization!
