In the words of Audrey Hepburn, “Paris is always a good idea”, and our team at AIFS Abroad completely agree. Iconic architecture such as Notre-Dame and the Eiffel Tower, the Michelin Star restaurants, the sparkle of beauty and mysterious elegance, all make Paris a featured destination for world travelers. With so many things to see and do Paris is an ideal location for interns wanting to stay in one location, but living in a metropolitan city opens up access to travel Europe.
Some of the most sought after internships are in Fashion, International Business, Marketing, and International Politics. Placements are not limited to these career fields and vary depending on your career goals. French language skills are useful, but placements are also available for English speakers.
An addition to our Internships in Paris program there is a language course before your start date. Paris, the city of lights, is an inspiring and mesmerizing location offering many opportunities, and the work week is only 35hrs!

City of Paris
Located within walking distance from the housing there are stops for the nearby Metro, RER, Tram, and Bus to take around the city. Don’t be caught going in circles, unlike most grid patterns of city streets, Paris is divided in a spiral shape with 20 districts.
Paris is a city with four seasons; however it is rare to have extreme hot or cold temperatures. Pack your rain boots & umbrella, because rain is common throughout the year.
France is 6 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time and 9 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time.

What Makes AIFS Abroad different?
Professional development is at the foundation of our preparation for participants' time abroad. We utilize the Clifton Strengths assessment as a tool to help all participants understand themselves better, provide a vocabulary around their natural talents, and deepen the impact of their experience abroad.
Access, Inclusion, Diversity, & Equity (AIDE)
As an organization we are committed to ensuring all identities are able to thrive in an inclusive global educational environment. Everyone has a complex identity, and the different aspects of your identity are important when deciding on a program and location. Review our Social Identity Pages to assist you when selecting a program that best fits your interests and needs.
We are the first education abroad provider to sign on with the Climate Action Network for International Educators (CANIE). Focused on making education abroad carbon neutral, we include carbon offsets for all participants' return flights, environmental education connecting students on the ground to environmental projects, and make our own business practices more sustainable.
