Take a gap year on your terms — with AIFS.

We provide all-inclusive, flexible program options to customize your gap year adventure around the world. Mix and match destinations and academic terms for a one-of-a-kind opportunity to earn college credits, immerse yourself in a different culture, acquire global skills and expand your life experience.

AIFS Gap Year Programs are available to high school graduates 18 and over. 

Students have the optional overnight flight from U.S. to London, which includes a 2-day stay prior to your arrival in Rome.

Spend the summer in the vibrant and historic city of Rome. Earn up to 10 credits through a variety of courses studying at Richmond, the American International University. Courses are taught in English or Italian, and no previous Italian language study is required.

Students choose from Session I (3 weeks), Session II (4 weeks) or combine the two for a 7-week internship program in a museum, gallery or cultural institution. Students can begin or advance their Italian language study and take courses in Art, Art History, Culture in Rome, Communications, Fashion, History or Religion, all taught in English.
