"It was interesting, funny and enriching."

Philipp Haberler, student from Austria

I was only for two weeks there, but I loved it!

Most of the time I had private lessons.
The teachers were smart, cool and funny so I had a good time and I learned a lot.
But I also met some students from all over the world in my breaks that was awesome.
I enjoyed going to School there and definetly would recommend AIA to everyone.

"I like the school"

Nopparat Chompupong, student from Thailand

I liked the school because I made new friends. I've known several people, and friends of friends. Each one of them came from different countries each with different culture. And I've known teachers to help teach reading, writing, listening, speaking and I've improved myself. I will never forget this school.

"Most of the teachers were great, but the English proficiency of the students win the classes were not on the same level."

Sabine Andrikos, student from Germany

The main problem was that the English proficiency of the students in the classes were not on the same level. The rooms were also too small for the classes.

"Aston International Academy surprised me with kindness, wisdom and knowledge!"

Brunella Casagrande, student from Brazil

The classes are really good! The teachers are creative, patient, and kind! They explain clearly and with joy! The location is really good! But they don't have a private parking lot! But it's not a problem! They always do something to unite the students! Games, parties, etc. It was remarkable! I liked this school so much! I recommend checking it out!

"It's different from Italian schools."

Federica Iucci, student from Italy

It was a nice experience, even if very short. I studied there only for two weeks, so I can't say a lot about the school. The teachers are so good and kind. The lessons are good, but I think that it will be better if there were more conversations and when the students are talking the teacher correct them. The location is right, above all, for the guys that live in west campus.
However it was great, and I met a lot of students.

visa

Visa support

We cannot apply for visas on behalf of students. However, the school can supply you with all the documentation you need to support your visa application.

If you are studying full time in the United States for more than 18 hours per week, you will receive an I-20 that you need to submit to the US embassy along with your F-1 student visa application. The I-20 has a SEVIS tracking number on it. Students who wish to apply for a student visa must pay the SEVIS fee online before going to the US embassy or consulate for their visa interview.

Your I-20 will be sent to your home address by regular mail at no charge to you. If you wish to receive your paperwork by express mail, you will be charged $50 when you register.

Please note that United States law states that an I-20 can only be issued to students who intend to pursue full-time English language studies. United States law does not permit students to study part-time with an F-1 Student Visa. If you are studying for less than 18 hours per week, you have to apply for a Visitor Visa (B1/B2) on your own.

School location

Austin is one of the best cities in the United States to study English and go to school. Not only is it very safe but it is one of the most unique places in the world.

Austin is the "Live Music Capital of the World"! People in Austin are friendly and laid-back, and Austin is considered one of the "fittest" cities in the U.S. Every season there are endless outdoor and indoor activities offered including yoga, running/walking trails, hiking, swimming, camping, kayaking, paddleboarding, wakeboarding, etc. Austin loves food, so there is a lot to try. Winters are mild, and summers can get very hot - but AIA makes sure you get a chance to swim all summer.

AIA is located just a few minutes from downtown Austin. Shopping, restaurants, and nightlife are right at your fingertips. Surrounding the school you have access to local Texas BBQ, a worldly food-truck court, and a beautiful park right on the lake.

Austin was recently voted one of the top cities in America by Bloomberg Business Week. Come see what makes Austin special!
