About AIS

The Association of International Schools (AIS) represents and supports the educational and public interest of member schools and their communities by promoting and improving international education. AIS is a non-profit organisation that provides quality educations, conferences, research and awards for the benefit of its members. Our goal is to promote quality education, equity in society and the interests of other education employees. It supports international exchange of students and ideas. International education services are not only our area of expertise – they are our passion. Through our AIS Network, we share our extensive knowledge and decades of experience with others who are working to internationalize their campuses and build international partnerships. We invite you to join our global membership network of more than 18,000 professionals at 13,000 higher education institutions around the world.

As a member of the AIS Network, you will have access to outstanding and informative resources, including exclusive research data, our newsletter, the AIS Networker magazine and affiliates around the world. You will receive discounts on our events and services and, most importantly, you will be part of a network of 18,000 professionals—ranging from study abroad directors to international student advisors to university presidents, and more—who share best practices, create international linkages and establish strategic partnerships.

Each institutional member designates one membership contact and several additional individuals, such as the president or CEO, the study abroad advisors, international student advisors, the chief international education officer, and other individuals who work on internationalizing your school campus.
