OF FOR

I have dual-citizenship with the SWEDEN U.K., and my whole family is British. I’ve always wanted to spend time in DENMARK Scotland and explore my heritage, which is why I jumped at the opportunity to intern at the Scottish Parliament.

YOUR FUTURE SELF THANKS YOU

TOM CLIFTON CO-FOUNDER, ANIMOTO ST. CATHERINE’S COLLEGE, UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD, 2001

“Study abroad gave me self-confidence for sure, but also, the ability to confront and assimilate other cultures, ideas and ways of thinking. Almost every job demands social skills, adaptation, self-awareness and the fortitude to withstand fluctuating environments. Studying abroad helps with all of these. It teaches you the skills of building trust and friendships, listening and comprehending and communicating effectively with people who don’t always understand you.”

FUTURE-FOCUSED STUDY ABROAD More than just an opportunity to see the world, our programs integrate critical lifelong skills designed to help you achieve your goals. This is the essence of Future-Focused Study Abroad. IFSA-Butler offers more than 100 dynamic study abroad programs in 53 cities across the globe. Comprehensive academic, personal and logistical support allows our students to focus on making the most of the experience. Through our local staff experts, our students develop insider knowledge of the local community. Internships, directed research options, volunteer opportunities, community-based learning and our signature Exploring Community & Culture course all facilitate critical skill development. Many of our programs are based at preeminent 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 growth. The choice to study abroad is one of the best decisions you can make. You are sure to thank yourself for the opportunity to interact with another culture and learn about yourself in the process.

BEYOND THE CLASSROOM

INTERNSHIPS ABROAD Immerse yourself in the professional culture of another country while establishing an international network of colleagues and demonstrating your ability to navigate a global, multicultural business world.

In today’s competitive job market, every ounce of experience counts. You can maximize your study abroad adventure by combining classroom work with directed research, student teaching, community-based learning, volunteering or an internship. These opportunities will give you even greater exposure to your host community, enhance your intercultural skills and look great on a resume!

DIRECTED RESEARCH With the help of a faculty guide, you will create a research project that will serve as a tangible and meaningful product that showcases your commitment to your academic topic.

STUDENT TEACHING As a future educator, you will encounter an increasingly diverse student population in the classroom. Showcase your ability to work with students from different cultures by conducting student teaching in a global setting.

COMMUNITY-BASED LEARNING OPPORTUNITIES Community-based learning opportunities carry academic credit while providing a chance for active involvement in your host community.

EXAMINE COMMUNITY IDENTITY

JOIN A COMMUNITY Wondering how you might make local friends and actually feel more like a local? Every IFSA-Butler program gives students the opportunity to engage in a community of their choosing. Whether an on-campus club or a group based in the wider host community, IFSA-Butler programs facilitate true integration with the culture.

Our exclusive Exploring Community & Culture (C&C) course offers you the opportunity to experience your host city in a way most visitors never can. This 3-credit option fosters intercultural dialogue and a greater understanding of global society. Some programs offer an on-site class, while students in other locations can join a global cohort of other IFSA-Butler students worldwide by taking the class online. Using your host city as your laboratory, C&C will help you experience and examine cultural as well as personal identity.

AFFORD YOUR JOURNEY FINANCIAL AID

Many students don’t realize that financial aid can help pay for study abroad. Pell Grants, Stafford Loans and PLUS loans can apply to your IFSA-Butler program. College grants and scholarships, Perkins Loans, state grants and loans, and 529 plans may also be used for study abroad, but you’ll need to ask your home campus financial aid office about their policies for transferring these types of aid.

We believe that study abroad is within reach for every student, so we’re committed to helping you identify funding sources. We can assist you with your financial aid transfer, and we offer a wide range of scholarships and grants to help defray the cost of studying abroad.

VETERANS BENEFITS

If you are a recipient of the Post 9/11 GI Bill, you may use your tuition benefits for study abroad. This process can differ among U.S. colleges and universities, so you will want to start the conversation early with your home campus study abroad office to determine the best billing procedure for your institution.

WORK-TO-STUDY GRANT PROGRAM

Gain some work experience and earn spending money while you are abroad! With the Work-to-Study grant, students complete projects for IFSA-Butler in exchange for a stipend between $300 and $1,000, depending on the scope and involvement of the projects completed. These grant opportunities are available to all students, with special consideration to those already on federal work study at their home campus. Work-to-Study positions are determined by current and frequently changing project needs at IFSA-Butler, but could include: • Marketing and communications • Graphic design • Photography and videography • Peer advising • Research • Creative writing

SCHOLARSHIPS Scholarships are available to any student enrolled in a summer, semester, or full year IFSA-Butler or Alliance program. See our complete list and full details online at www.ifsa-butler.org/scholarships.

Study abroad really caused me to think more seriously about allowing time for self-reflection. Before my time abroad, I was often inclined to fill my Google Calendar to the brim with events and obligations. At Oxford, however, the abundance of unstructured time allowed me so much more independence and so much more time to think about what really matters in my life. –Susannah Wright, Rice University Worcester College, University of Oxford, 2016

Prague, the capital of the Czech Republic, is one of Central Europe’s oldest gems, but also one of its rising stars. Home to innovation, art and creativity, Prague is the gateway to the “new Europe” within the Czech Republic and neighboring Germany and Austria. The city’s train stations, bus networks and airport make Prague an ideal base from which to explore Europe, though with a plethora of cafes, cathedrals and museums, there is no shortage of local wonders to experience. Prague has an excellent public transportation system that links together diverse neighborhoods and allows students to traverse the city with ease.

Prague is in the heart of Europe, in the City of a Hundred Spires, that has been the crossroads of international activity for over a thousand years, and has awed not only crowds of tourists from all over the world but also stole the heart of so many international visitors, professionals, entrepreneurs and students who choose to stay and live here. Our country boasts a beautiful countryside, charming small towns, mountains and a generous people with a unique sense of humor, legendary resourcefulness and love for music, sports and the outdoors.

We are here to use our local and international expertise to support you in your learning and discovery, and to make your stay a truly unique and meaningful experience both here and in the future.

More than 2,000 years of history are evident throughout the old city of York, including walls that date to Roman times and York Minster, Northern Europe’s largest gothic cathedral. Contemporary entertainment are also plentiful, however, so don’t miss the opportunity to explore the city’s many cafés, tearooms, restaurants and music venues.

Frequently rated one of the most livable cities in England, Norwich is one of the busiest commercial centers in the country. The city’s modern atmosphere lies in contrast to its long history and ancient surroundings, which include cobblestone streets, a Norman castle and cathedral, and medieval buildings. Norwich offers a rich cultural scene, as well as great nightlife, including more than 300 pubs, cafés, restaurants and nightclubs.

Welcome to our programmes in England. We are thrilled you have chosen England as the site of your study abroad experience and are confident you will all enjoy the unique challenges and pleasures of negotiating the cultural differences which exist between our countries. We may share (sometimes distantly) a common tongue, but we hope you will discover much that will excite and confuse, delight and challenge.

SCOTLAND

ST. ANDREWS St. Andrews is the quintessential university town and also full of history dating back to the sixth century. Cobbled streets link the university and the town together and help to create a strong sense of community. St. Andrews is also the world-famous home of golf. Students who have a handicap that meets the standards of the Royal and Ancient Golf Club can play on the Old Course of St. Andrews for a surprisingly reasonable fee.

STIRLING Stirling’s status as a center for local government, retail and industry means there’s plenty to do in the town, and its low cost of living makes it a great choice for students who want to study abroad on a budget. The “Gateway to the Highlands,” Stirling was the setting for Scottish battles for independence. Don’t miss the many tributes to Stirling’s historic past, including the Wallace Monument, Stirling Castle and the field of Bannockburn. Stirling is less than an hour by train to world-class cities Edinburgh and Glasgow.

Edinburgh is the capital city of Scotland and one of the most beautiful cities in Europe. The Old and New Towns of Edinburgh are easily accessible from anywhere in the city, allowing visitors and residents alike to take full advantage of everything this cosmopolitan city has to offer. During the summer, Edinburgh is home to many world-famous film, music and cultural festivals, including the International Festival and the Edinburgh Fringe, the largest arts festival in the world.

ES L A W

Glasgow has been voted European City of Culture and is home to the national Scottish ballet, orchestra and chorus. It’s also known as one of the U.K.’s top cities for both traditional and extreme sports. Glasgow offers students the perfect mix of trendy west end cafés and restaurants, a wide range of shopping in the sophisticated Merchant City and the open green space in the many award-winning country parks surrounding the city.

A warm welcome to IFSA-Butler Scotland. We are delighted that you are considering Scotland as your study abroad destination, a wise choice given that Scotland has been a world leader in education for more than 500 years, boasting some of the oldest universities in the world and ranked amongst the best in the U.K. Scotland is not just about bagpipes, shortbread and tartan. From the rugged and dramatic mountains of the Highlands to the ancient, seaside home of golf at St. Andrews, to the historic and picturesque location of Stirling to the buzz of Edinburgh and Glasgow, there is much to explore and learn. We look forward to welcoming and helping you as you immerse yourself into Scottish life. Remember that throughout your stay you can draw upon our academic, pastoral and emergency resources, and enjoy the exciting social events and weekend trips we have lined up for you. Sincerely, Ruth Casey, Resident Director and all the IFSA-Butler staff in Scotland

EXCURSIONS, ACTIVITIES AND EVENTS

PROFILE My time abroad influenced my academics and personal relationships greatly. Due to the different educational system in the UK and the high level of expectations, my work back at my home university has been more independently driven and I have become more focused on research in the areas that I am passionate about. I also make more of an effort to cultivate friendships with others, hosting dinner parties and spearheading a weekly reading group as my time abroad was filled with these rewarding social activities. -Maria Noel, Gustavus Adolphus College University of Edinburgh, 2015

FALL EXCURSIONS

• Three-day Highland weekend: Students take guided tours throughout the stunning Highlands, visit a historic whiskey distillery, see a display at one of Scotland’s last working sheep dog farms, and tour the magical Loch Ness and Culloden, the site of the last ever battle to be fought on British soil

SPRING EXCURSIONS

• Three-day visit to the Argyll Forest on the West coast of Scotland, one of Scotland’s most beautiful national parks. Activities include the opportunity to kayak, hike and cave while exploring some of Scotland’s most breathtaking landscapes. • Three-day excursion to the Isle of Skye, which is regularly voted one of the most beautiful islands in the world! Students visit one of the last working sheepdog farms in Scotland, climb the Old Man of Storr, wash faces in the magical faery river at Sligachan (where legend has it, the secret to eternal youth lies), visit Armadale Castle and Eilean Donan Castle and travel through the captivating valley of Glencoe.

Think you know Spain? Think you know study abroad? Think again. Set beneath the shadow of the Pyrenee mountains, Barcelona is a tapestry of music, history, religion, architecture, food and art. Come explore its complex personality. Very modern yet quite ancient. A cosmopolis full of people from all over the world, yet with village neighborhoods. Mountain, valley, sea, city. Catalan, Spanish, Mediterranean, European, Latino, and so much more, truly an exciting mix of identities! Barcelona is an ideal place to combine study abroad with an internship. Our city is home to countless international businesses, nonprofit organizations, tech start-ups, government offices, media outlets, political groups and more. All of these offer tremendous opportunities for you to put your academic learning to real-life use during the semester. Students choose Engage Barcelona for many reasons, yet their profile is similar. They are looking for a blend of academics, practical work experience and life-changing personal experiences. They are adventurous, looking for a challenging and stimulating experience, and do not want their hands held. But they do want support when they need it, which is why your Barcelona team opens their arms to you with an enormous Bienvenidos!! When you’re not taking classes, studying or working at your internship, be assured that our office is open daily and also available for 24/7 emergency assistance. We’re here to help with medical issues, personal emergencies, academic questions or just to chat! You will also see us on cultural activities and excursions, perfect opportunities for us to know each other personally. Our goal is to support you throughout your time in Barcelona. It will be an unforgettable experience. Sincerely, Ryan Lorenz, Resident Director and all the IFSA-Butler staff in Barcelona

PROFILE My host family was my number one connection to Barcelona. I loved living with them and practicing Spanish, Catalan and English all together. We would go out to sports bars to watch FCB games and on a couple of occasions, I went to my host brother’s soccer games. –Abby Muehlstein, Duke University Engage Barcelona, 2016

CARDIFF Cardiff, the capital city of Wales, is commonly described as the perfect student city. It is easy to walk around, friendly, inexpensive and has a very low crime rate. Cardiff also has all the facilities you would expect of a modern and cosmopolitan metropolis within a unique Welsh cultural tradition. If you like to get out of the city, the South Wales area offers some of the most spectacular natural scenery in the world and is a great base for visiting continental Europe.

As an IFSA-Butler program student, you’ll experience the history and heritage of rural Wales coupled with all the culture and attractions that modern Cardiff has to offer. Students can explore everything from the wilds of North Wales and the rolling hills of the Brecon Beacons to the quaint charm that embodies St. David’s. Known for our friendly citizens and first-class restaurants, there is something for every student in Wales, no matter what your interests. Once you’re here, we’ll be happy to help you in any way. We hope to welcome you to Wales soon! Sincerely, Andrew Williams, Senior Resident Director, Oxford and Wales Programmes
