ABOUT OUR PROGRAMS

FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD The Institute for Study Abroad, Butler University (IFSA-Butler) delivers flexible programs that optimize the long-term benefits of study abroad participation. Since 1988, IFSA-Butler has grown to support students from hundreds of U.S. and Canadian institutions each year. The IFSA-Butler student experience is personally tailored for individualized impact. More than just an exciting study abroad opportunity, IFSA-Butler programs integrate the acquisition of critical lifelong skills—the essence of Future-Focused Study Abroad.

INTENTIONAL PROGRAMMING IFSA-Butler offers more than 100 dynamic study abroad programs in 18 countries. Comprehensive academic, personal, and logistical support allows our students to focus on making the most of the study abroad experience. Through our local staff experts, our students develop insider knowledge of the local academic environment. Internships, directed research options, volunteer opportunities, community-based learning and our signature Exploring Community & Culture model all facilitate critical skill development. Many of our programs are based at pre-eminent institutions abroad offering direct access to academic departments distinguished as leaders in their respective disciplines, while other programs offer IFSA-Butler courses taught by local experts. All programs are structured to engage students and promote intellectual growth.

BEYOND STUDY ABROAD Our philosophy is guided by the key principles of appreciative advising, a positive, goals-oriented strategy that builds on the strengths of the individual and encourages the exploration of new perspectives, allowing students to challenge themselves and maximize their learning in unexpected ways. Because constructive learning is the most meaningful, IFSA-Butler students take part in a pre-arrival process that prepares them to succeed; on-site experiences that push them to create knowledge through their interactions with peers, instructors and community members; and post-program reflection that clarifies transferrable skills acquired. The personal agency that emerges is one of the greatest benefits students can achieve through studying abroad, and it is at the core of the Future-Focused Study Abroad approach that distinguishes IFSA-Butler.

QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT STUDY ABROAD

ARE YOUR EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES INCLUDED IN THE PROGRAM FEE?

DO YOU HAVE SCHOLARSHIPS? IFSA-Butler places a high priority on providing scholarships and financial support for our students. For more information on our scholarships and other funding opportunities, see page 3.

DO YOU ORGANIZE CULTURAL EXCURSIONS AND ACTIVITIES?

Photo by IFSA-Butler student Callie Cleckner, Wake Forest University

Some study abroad programs advertise host university activities and events as their own. IFSAButler staff in Australia and New Zealand organize special cultural events and excursions just for IFSA-Butler students. Of course, host university activities are also available to our students and are a bonus to the IFSA-Butler cultural experience.

IFSA-Butler’s program fees include all of our excursions and activities, which often feature “off the beaten path” attractions that most students wouldn’t be able to do on their own. These co-curricular opportunities complement your academic learning for a well-rounded cultural and academic experience.

EXPLORING COMMUNITY & CULTURE MODEL (C&C)

In today’s global world, it is no longer enough to travel and study in another country. Employers and graduate schools want to see more. They want you to demonstrate that you have successfully navigated another culture, that you have the skills to work in a multicultural environment and that you have gone beyond just academic tourism.

TAKE OUR COURSE Our C&C course is a 3-credit option that fosters intercultural dialogue and a greater understanding of Australian and New Zealand society. Engage Australia students have an on-site class, while students in other locations take the course online.

DR. DEIDRE MENDEZ

As the instructor for IFSA-Butler’s online C&C course, Dr. Mendez will guide and mentor IFSA-Butler’s global cohorts as they reflect on their experiences abroad and use this dynamic learning opportunity to gain critical cross-cultural skills. Dr. Mendez is Associate Director for Cultural Programs at the Center for International Business Education and Research (CIBER) at the University of Texas at Austin.

Set yourself apart Set yourself apart from other students studying abroad with IFSA-Butler’s Exploring Community & Culture (C&C) model. C&C is exclusive to IFSA-Butler and is a key component of every program.

DO THINGS! PARTICIPATE IN CULTURAL EXCURSIONS

Take advantage of this opportunity to go beyond the surface of study abroad through C&C!

Each of our Australia and New Zealand locations offers different co-curricular activities for students, and our on-site staff arrange these unique opportunities so that you don’t have to. You’ll have access to places and events you wouldn’t even know were available! Best of all, you’ll have the chance to reflect on these excursions in your C&C course and discuss how they fit into the greater context of your study abroad experience. See pages 23 and 46 for more details.


GO LOCAL! JOIN A COMMUNITY Wondering how you might make local friends and actually feel more like a local? With C&C, you’ll engage in a community of your choosing in your host city. This could include joining a university club or sports team, a local NGO, a faith-based organization or doing volunteer work.

Photo by IFSA-Butler student Sarah Chaffee, Susquehanna University

The C&C class challenged me to look critically at all aspects of society and what could be used to form this sense of someone’s ‘identity’, and also to look critically at myself, as well as how I view myself and the world. Before this class I think I was a little selfish and very na��ve. I don’t think I realized that my one viewpoint of the world coming from a middle-class suburban household in the Northeast United States shapes everything that I see and do, and that I can choose to go outside of that and think of things in other terms. –Rachel Lemalefant, University of South Carolina

WHAT C&C OFFERS YOU: C&C offers you the exciting chance to experience your host city in a way most visitors never can. It is designed to take study abroad to another level. While abroad, do you want to do what locals do? Go where they go? See your new culture and environment through their eyes?

GET MORE OUT OF STUDY ABROAD WITH C&C: Using your host city as your laboratory, C&C will help make an unfamiliar place more familiar. Get a behindthe-scenes look at your city that you could never learn in a classroom or see on a tour bus. You’ll experience and enjoy some of the cultural quirks that make your new home unique, and maybe you’ll recognize some quirks of your own.

One of my courses, Australia’s Terrestrial Biology, was by far the best educational experience I’ve ever had. I learned so much from the numerous lecturers, all experts in their fields, and the amazing field trips we took. All of the trips showed me something new but most of all demonstrated how fragile an ecosystem can be, especially in Australia. This course renewed my passion for the environment and nature. For my capstone (non-fiction emphasis in creative writing), I plan on focusing on environmental issues. –Alexandra Kassler, University of Redlands

AUSTRALIA

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTOR G’day and welcome to the Land Down Under! It’s easy to see why Australia is the ultimate place to study abroad. Australian universities rank in the top 100 worldwide and many students have taken advantage of research, internship placements and unique learning experiences. Outside of the classroom, Australian cities are ranked some of the most liveable in the world, with a diverse and friendly population. Living in Australia, you will be experiencing a new culture and finding new communities to engage with, as well as balancing your school work, and obviously all this can be challenging. This is why we have an incredibly dedicated and caring staff whose primary purpose is to support you! Each program has a Student Services Coordinator, a local who lives in your city and is there to help! They will host some amazing co-curricular events that will have you experiencing Australia and its culture in a new way but they also hold regular catch ups and contact you every week to ensure that you have the best experience possible. Whether it’s academic advice, help when you get sick or you’re homesick and just need someone to talk to, your SSC will be there for you. We really have an amazing team, and I’m so excited for you to meet them. You will meet your SSC and me at our awesome four-day orientation in Sydney! It’s a great way for you to see some iconic sites, while getting to know your new besties and getting prepared for the semester ahead. We are so looking forward to meeting you and being part of your incredible journey! Cheers! Christi Hoover, Resident Director and all the IFSA-Butler staff in Australia

Country Life Weekend was hands down the best weekend I had in Australia. I hadn’t realized how much I had gotten lost in the hustle and bustle of the city, but a weekend away taught me that I needed to find ways to relax. All in all, Country Life had the perfect timing in the semester. – Michael Brown Wake Forest University

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose Australia for study abroad? When I chose Australia, I really had no idea what I was getting into or what it would be like, but I knew I was ready for the adventure and was excited to explore a land I had dreamed of, but that had seemed so far from my normal reality.

CASEY SCHULLER Colorado College MAJOR: Sociology IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: James Cook University

What is your favorite memory of Australia? I was fortunate enough to get scuba certified on the Great Barrier Reef. That is an experience I will never forget.

How did IFSA-Butler help enhance your experience? My study abroad experience would not have been the same if I hadn’t traveled with IFSA-Butler. They were so helpful from beginning the application process through to the end.

What was an academic highlight of your time abroad?

“Snorkeling with the turtles and watching them swim away was unforgettable!”

I worked with some turtle researchers at James Cook. Once the turtles were old enough, I was invited to travel to the Whitsundays for their release. The Whitsundays is one of the most beautiful places on Earth, and getting to release the turtles that I had watched grow and help name was bittersweet. The best way to describe that trip is just that it was really cool and nothing I could have ever dreamt of. Being a part of that research was unexpected by itself (especially since I’m not a marine biologist), but snorkeling with the turtles and watching them swim away was unforgettable!

What was your favorite IFSA-Butler activity? Going to the rugby game in Townsville. The environment at the stadium was crazy and offered so much insight into the rugby culture. It was definitely something on my bucket list, but would again have been difficult to organize on my own. Plus, having an Aussie there to explain everything really helped!

What advice do you have for future Australia students? Pay attention to everything and just try to soak it all in. It is often the small things that catch you off guard. Spend time in places that are not normally touristy. Go to places like the grocery store and the mall and see how it’s different from what you have at home.

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose New Zealand for study abroad? I wanted to go somewhere that was not as populated and would be a place where I could go on adventures. I had a friend who went to New Zealand and loved it and told me I would love it there.

SARAH TENSA Oregon State University MAJOR: Food Science & Technology IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: University of Otago

What is your favorite memory of New Zealand? Learning Māori performance in class and taking a road trip through the North Island.

How did IFSA-Butler help enhance your experience? IFSA-Butler brought us to places I probably wouldn’t have gone to on my own. I was also able to ask questions about Kiwi culture and slang without having to be too embarrassed about asking. Our IFSA-Butler Student Services Coordinator Josh was willing to teach us about rugby and cricket and other integral parts of NZ sports.

What was your favorite IFSA-Butler event? The overnight experience in Doubtful Sound and going to a rugby game.

What advice do you have for future New Zealand students?

“IFSA-Butler brought us to places I probably wouldn’t have gone to on my own. I was also able to ask questions about Kiwi culture and slang without having to be too embarrassed about asking.”

Grades for classes are determined by a few assessments, usually an essay and exam, and not much homework or other points. The exams are harder than typical American tests so you need to study more for them.
