Combining the strengths of AIFS Study Abroad and Global Experiences international internships into a new virtual semester program for college students

Recent global events may keep you from your destination abroad, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still learn about Renaissance painters from professors in Tuscany or study a foreign language with native speakers. 

AIFS has developed an international online curriculum using their global network of universities and faculty in over 15 countries.

Global Experiences has created its Virtuoso program and is now working with employers to provide virtual international internships for students and young professionals.

Now partnered together, we're maximizing our global networks and abilities to provide students with the best opportunities for quality professional development, international education, and academic continuity.
