Choosing your program: IFSA-Designed or IFSA Partnership? 

IFSA gives you two distinct options for study abroad: IFSA Partnership Programs—provided in conjunction with the many universities we work with—or IFSA-Designed Programs, which include IFSA Study Programs and IFSA Career Accelerator Programs. 

Experience high-quality and affordable study abroad with IFSA-Designed Programs. Save thousands while enjoying small classes, and simplified admissions.

Quality IFSA-Designed Programs that cost less

IFSA-Designed Programs reflect our commitment to offering high-quality study abroad that’s accessible for students with GPAs of 2.0 and up—and affordable. IFSA Study Programs are designed to cost significantly less. In England, for example, you could save $20K or even $40K dollars by choosing an IFSA-Designed Program such as IFSA Study in London.   

Save thousands of dollars with a high-quality IFSA-Designed Program.  

IFSA Study in Buenos Aires, IFSA Study in London, IFSA Tech Career Accelerator, and many more are completely designed and delivered by IFSA. Students take classes designed by IFSA at our program centers. Classes are taught by experienced faculty from local universities that understand our goals. Many of these programs offer an option to take one or two classes at a local university.
