Logistics & Practicalities

Every aspect of our study abroad programs has been extensively planned for your convenience. From housing to weekend excursions and daytrips, a range of services are included when you sign up for one of our programs:


  • The AIB provides assistance in achieving each student’s academic and personal goals
  • The AIB Program Directors and Program Assistants work one-on-one with each student for a positive, stress-free experience
  • Students have access to an on-site Program Director as well as to Program Assistants who help students with everyday questions and concerns


The AIB provides many day and overnight academic excursions to surrounding regions as well as weeklong academic trips to cities such as Paris, Prague, Amsterdam and Berlin. In fact some programs even spend more time traveling all over Europe than in Bonn. Exploring these regions is an integral part of adapting to and appreciating the European way of life.


  • Each AIB program includes housing in a host family or in a student residence
  • Fully-furnished apartments are equipped with the necessary basic amenities
  • All AIB housing options are centrally located and within easy access to the AIB facilities


  • AIB students are provided with mobile phones for the duration of the program
  • Students have the opportunity to reload credit on their phones as needed


  • Pre-departure assistance from AIB staff or/and support on home campus in the USA is possible, depending on individual preference.
  • Airport Transfer
  • Onsite Program Directors coordinate a city orientation tour at the beginning of each program to familiarize students with their new surroundings
  • During the orientation program, Onsite Program Directors review the most up-to-date health and safety information as well as cultural customs
