QUESTIONS TO ASK ABOUT STUDY ABROAD

HOW WILL MY GRADES AND CREDITS TRANSFER? Every IFSA-Butler student receives a Butler University transcript with official grade and credit translations at no extra cost. Having a U.S. university transcript will make your academic career smoother, because most U.S. universities treat the Butler University transcript as transfer credit.

DO YOUR PROGRAMS INCLUDE MEDICAL INSURANCE? All IFSA-Butler programs include comprehensive accident and illness insurance at no additional cost.

EXPLORING COMMUNITY & CULTURE PROGRAM (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. 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 distinguishing feature of every program. Our C&C course and community engagement philosophy will help deepen your understanding of your host community and our greater global society.

8

TAKE OUR COURSE Our C&C course is a 3-credit option that fosters intercultural dialogue and a greater understanding of local society. London and Barcelona offer an on-site class, while students in other locations take the course online as a global cohort with other IFSA-Butler students worldwide.

DO THINGS! PARTICIPATE IN CULTURAL EXCURSIONS Each of our countries offers different co-curricular excursions for students, and our local staff arrange these unique activities so that you don’t have to. You’ll have access to experiences you wouldn’t even know were available! In addition, our Engage London and Barcelona programs have co-curricular activities that help students delve even deeper into the cultural complexities of local society.

CAMPUS ENGAGEMENT IFSA-Butler’s university-based programs allow students access to campus sports, clubs, organizations and social events. C&C students are able to truly engage with host university students and to have an authentic university experience in Europe.

“C&C is a project-based, crash course of the dynamic and lively facets of the Irish culture as well as the reflection of one’s own. It is two hours a week spent delving into topics most certainly forgotten by a typical study abroad student, and there would have been a void in my experience without it.” –Megan Madonna, Vanderbilt University


GO LOCAL! JOIN A COMMUNITY

“Our spectacular C&C professor, Núria, gave us detailed tours around all of the different neighborhoods in Barcelona. She took us to cool restaurants, the hip hangout spots, she even gave us advice on where the locals tend to go out at night. The C&C class gave me the space to discuss how my views on myself and culture have changed throughout the semester. After a semester of taking this class, we truly did feel like a family. “

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, volunteering with a local NGO, becoming involved in a faith-based organization or doing volunteer work.

–Meaghan Cranney Philadelphia University Photo by IFSA-Butler student Shristi Uprety, Franklin & Marshall College

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.

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.

IFSA-BUTLER SCHOLARSHIP AND FUNDING OPPORTUNITIES IFSA-Butler believes that study abroad should be within the reach of every student, so we offer a wide range of scholarships and financing services. Any applicant to an IFSA-Butler program is welcome to apply for the opportunities below. IFSA-BUTLER SCHOLARSHIPS Awards are $1,500 for semester programs and $2,500 for full year programs and may be used for any IFSA-Butler program.

FILL THE GAP Fill the GAP allows students to save in advance for any IFSA-Butler program and includes a matching grant up to $1,000.

UPFRONT PROGRAM UpFront allows students to put airfare and their program deposit on their IFSA-Butler student account in order to minimize up-front costs. The account may then be paid with financial aid or our monthly payment option.

FIRST GENERATION SCHOLARSHIP This scholarship valued at $2,500 is for first generation college students and is used to reimburse certain up-front expenses for study abroad, including airfare, visa costs and passport fees. The scholarship for some recipients may include a $500 housing scholarship.

WORK-TO-STUDY GRANTS Build your resume and help pay for study abroad at the same time! Work-to-Study grants allow students to work on special projects before or during their study abroad experience. IFSA-Butler pays $250 to $1,000 for completed projects. Positions are typically available in a wide range of areas related to study abroad and IFSA-Butler programs.

USE YOUR FINANCIAL AID TO STUDY ABROAD! 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 its policies for transferring these types of aid. 10

“IFSA-Butler provided incredible support while I was abroad. They offered a useful and fun orientation, many events and trips throughout the semester, and a staff team with which I grew very close.

ENGLAND

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTORS Photo by IFSA-Butler student Shristi Uprety, Franklin & Marshall College

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. From the rolling hills of Kent to the exciting urban expanse that is London to the quaintness of York, from our much maligned weather to our pub culture — England has it all. No matter what your interests or passions, the staff in the London office are here to aid, abet, mentor and help you achieve the best from your time on the other side of the “pond.” Long may the “Special Relationship” continue. Sincerely, Andrew Williams, Senior Resident Director, Academics Lynne Alvarez, Senior Resident Director, Student Services and all the IFSA-Butler staff in England

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose England for study abroad? I speak a bit of French but I really wanted to forge deep connections with my classmates and professors which I felt I could only do in my native language.

What is your favorite memory of England? GREGORY MCNEIL Stevens Institute of Technology MAJOR: Mechanical Engineering IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: University of Sussex

Without exaggeration, I had fun every day. One specific thing that comes to mind is introducing my European friends to Thanksgiving. Several of my American friends woke up at 6 a.m. to start cooking a dinner for around 20 people. By 6 p.m. everything was ready and our English friends were blown away.

How did IFSA-Butler help enhance your experience? IFSA-Butler gave me great resources and helped connect me with like-minded people, some of whom I traveled with during the last two weeks of my stay in Europe.

What was your favorite class in England? The most interesting course I took was Introduction to American Studies. It was really interesting looking at America from the eyes of someone with a completely different viewpoint.

“IFSA-Butler gave me great resources and helped connect me with like-minded people.”

30

What advice do you have for future England students? Try to cook your own food! You’ll learn a valuable life skill and most English students (who typically do not know how to cook) will befriend you! If you’re going to be traveling around Europe (which I highly recommend), look into staying at hostels. They’re typically no more than 15 euros a night and you meet some really interesting people.

COLLEGES AND AVAILABLE TERMS AT THE UNIVERSITY OF OXFORD Please note: Because admissions requirements, available subjects and program spaces vary by college and change frequently, IFSA-Butler does not require students to select an Oxford college in order to begin an application. Applicants can either choose their preferred college upon application or rely on our specialized program advisors to help direct them to the college most suitable for their academic interests and qualifications.

Hertford College Founded in 1282, Hertford is one of Oxford’s oldest colleges. Located at the heart of the Oxford city center and directly opposite the main University library (the Bodleian), the college is known for its iconic Bridge of Sighs. Famous alumni include William Tyndale, John Donne, Thomas Hobbes, Jonathan Swift, Charles James Fox and Evelyn Waugh. Available fall, spring and year, but fall spaces are limited.

Lady Margaret Hall LMH prides itself on a maintaining a friendly, diverse and informal atmosphere. The college was founded in 1878 and was the first college at Oxford to admit women. The college became coed in 1977 and today maintains one of Oxford’s most balanced enrollments of men and women. The college is situated on a spacious and peaceful location on the River Cherwell in Oxford. Available fall, spring and year.

Mansfield College Mansfield has the best of both worlds: Convenient to university libraries and city shops, yet in a quiet location away from tourist traffic. The college is one of the smallest at Oxford, which creates a close-knit and welcoming atmosphere. Available for the full year only.

St. Anne’s College St. Anne’s was founded in 1879 as a university option for women who could not afford higher education. It became a full college of the University in 1952 and began admitting men in 1979. St. Anne’s is now one of Oxford’s largest colleges, with more than 550 undergraduate and graduate students. Famous alumni include Helen Fielding, author of Bridget Jones’s Diary. Available for the full year only.

St. Catherine’s College St. Catherine’s is one of Oxford’s newer colleges (founded in 1962), and it capitalizes on its modern image with contemporary architecture and wide, open spaces that lead to gardens, playing fields and neighboring parks. St. Catherine’s is one of Oxford’s largest and most diverse colleges. Available fall, spring and year.

St. Edmund Hall Although it retains a distinctive ancient title of ‘Hall,’ dating back to the thirteenth century before most other colleges had been founded, St. Edmund Hall is a full college of the University. Its grounds are known as one of the most beautiful in Oxford, and St. Edmund Hall students are known for their love of sports and active participation in college societies. Available fall, spring and year.

Worcester College Worcester prides itself on a seamless blend of ancient and modern. College buildings range from fifteenth century medieval cottages to recently constructed residential colleges. Although close to the city center and university buildings, it is far enough off the beaten path to occupy one of Oxford’s largest grounds and to boast its own sports fields, a rarity at Oxford. The college was founded in 1714, but there has been a higher education institution on the site since the late 13th century. Famous alumni include Rupert Murdoch and novelist Richard Adams. Available fall, spring and year. www.ifsa-butler.org/apply

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose Ireland for study abroad? Ireland always had a special place in my heart. The movies with the impossibly green panorama shots of the countryside, the portrayed friendliness of the people, and the slower pace of life were all so endearing to me. It made me homesick for a place I had never been to.

CARA DOUTHITT University of Tulsa MAJOR: Administrative Management IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: University of Limerick

What is your favorite memory of Ireland? Some of the best times I had were on a bus with the friends I made, traveling the countryside from town to town, discovering the little local gems that the locals would chat to us about.

What was your favorite class in Ireland? One class that truly enhanced my experience was Traditional Irish Music and Dance. It involved me in the culture like nothing else could, and opened up an absurd amount of opportunities for getting in the thick of Irish music, which is a huge part of the culture and social process there. If you can take a culture or country-specific class while you’re abroad, take advantage of that.

What was your favorite IFSA-Butler activity?

One class that truly enhanced my experience was Traditional Irish Music and Dance. It involved me in the culture like nothing else could.

The trip to Belfast—a city drenched in culture, life and history (for the better or worse). Going to the wall on the Black Cab Tour that IFSA-Butler booked for us made everything so much more intimate—you could start to really understand the turbulence and strife these people have lived through. Belfast quickly became a city that I hold dear, and I would love to return as soon as I can.

What advice do you have for future Ireland students? The best way to experience the culture is to get out there and make those mistakes you’re afraid of making. People are going to know you’re American. Seriously, there’s no hiding it. They’re going to know. So embrace it and learn as much as you can about the culture from those who actually know what they’re doing. They’ll be glad to talk to you about their home, I promise. Then before you know it, you’ll be blending in like you’ve lived there for years.

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.

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTOR Photo by IFSA-Butler student Aliya Bean, Brandeis University

“IFSA-Butler was invaluable in making my transition to Scotland easier. Orientation helped minimize my culture shock, and the staff really helped with information about traveling and how life is different there.” –Erin White, University of Vermont

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.

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose Scotland for study abroad? I chose Scotland, and more specifically, St. Andrews, because I liked the culture and tradition. Through the IFSA-Butler Highlands trip and my course on Scottish Music, I was able to get a taste of Scottish tradition.

JULIE RANDOLPH Bowdoin College MAJOR: Psychology IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: University of St. Andrews

What is your favorite memory of Scotland? My favorite memory of Scotland was going clay pigeon shooting with my family when they visited. The center was a bit off-the-grid and the instructors were extremely kind and hospitable. It was fun to try something new and out of my comfort zone.

What were you scared of before going abroad? What worried me most was whether I would be able to do everything I wanted to do and see everything I wanted to see while adjusting to a new academic system and doing well in school. However, I soon found that you really do learn to find a balance and that the ability to adjust to a new environment, university and culture is one of the greatest learning experiences of study abroad.

What was your favorite IFSA-Butler event?

“My homestay offered me experiences that I would have not gotten from merely traveling to the area, and I will never forget how kind the family was.”

My homestay on a farm between Stirling and Glasgow. It was perfect timing because it was a few weeks into my time at St. Andrews, and I was able to get a home feel and experience homemade haggis and black pudding. My homestay offered me experiences that I would have not gotten from merely traveling to the area, and I will never forget how kind the family was.

Photo by IFSA-Butler student Adam Hilborn, Claremont McKenna College

What advice do you have for future Scotland students? Be sure you read up on how their academic system works, and how it is different from your home academic system. For example, at St. Andrews they had very strict rules about skipping classes or missing exams. IFSA-Butler made sure we were aware of these beforehand. Take rules very seriously and don’t be afraid to reach out to IFSA-Butler with questions.

The city features a beautiful Mediterranean climate, a vibrant business environment, a reputation for some of Spain’s best food and an “old city” charm complete with iconic Gaudi architecture at seemingly every turn. This student-friendly city is proudly and staunchly Catalunyan, giving students a unique insight into the culture and politics of one of Spain’s most intriguing regions.

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTOR Set beneath the shadow of the Pyrenees, 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!

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose Spain for study abroad? For me it was easy to choose! I knew I wanted to study in a Spanish-speaking country, and after hearing about the internship program offered in Barcelona, my mind was made up.

What is your favorite memory of Spain? MEAGHAN CRANNEY Philadelphia University MAJOR: Fashion Industry Management IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: Engage Barcelona

My favorite memory has to be my first day. I was so happy to arrive at my home stay to take a warm shower and go to bed. However, my host mother had another plan in store for me. My host family and I attended two birthday parties and were out until practically sunrise. It was so amazing being thrown into this new culture. I got to try fresh, delicious seafood, meet my extended host family, run around on the beach, and I even met people my age that turned into friends for the rest of the semester. It was a wonderful experience, and looking back I wouldn’t have spent my first day any other way.

How did IFSA-Butler help enhance your experience?

“I noticed that many study abroad programs today are solely about taking classes and having a good time. IFSA-Butler focuses more on intercultural exchange and having more meaningful experiences and relationships while living in your host country.”

IFSA-Butler gave me many opportunities to integrate myself into the culture and world that I lived in. I noticed that many study abroad programs today are solely about taking classes and having a good time. IFSA-Butler focuses more on intercultural exchange and having more meaningful experiences and relationships while living in your host country. I lived with a host family, tutored students in English, interned with multiple spectacular start-up companies, and truly felt like part of the community. I also had time to travel and have endless fun experiences with new friends. It was a great balance between work and play.

What was your favorite IFSA-Butler activity/event? It’s difficult to choose just one, because every event was so much fun. But, if I have to narrow it down to my favorite, I would choose our day trip north of Barcelona to a town called Olot. Here we went on a gorgeous hike through volcanoes. It was something so unique that without IFSA-Butler I would have never known about or experienced.

WALES

WALES is

believed to have more CASTLES per square mile

than anywhere else

IN THE WORLD.

WELCOME FROM OUR RESIDENT DIRECTORS Croeso i Gymru! Wales, the United Kingdom’s hidden gem, offers a distinct and unique study abroad experience. 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 much maligned weather, lively pub culture, friendly citizens and first-class restaurants, there is something for every student in Wales, no matter what your interests. All of us in the London office are happy to help you in any way. We hope to welcome you to Wales soon! Sincerely, Andrew Williams, Senior Resident Director, Academics Lynne Alvarez, Senior Resident Director, Student Services

STUDENT PROFILE

Why did you choose Wales for study abroad?

LAUREN SUNDBY Drake University MAJOR: Molecular Biology IFSA-BUTLER PROGRAM: Cardiff University

Initially, I was planning on studying abroad in London, but upon the realization of just how big London is and how many people live there, I got slightly intimidated. I quickly set my sights on Cardiff, which offered a lot of the same things as London, but at a fraction of the size, population, and cost. Cardiff has the big city feel without being too overwhelming, but also still provides easy and affordable access to London and the rest of the U.K.

How did IFSA-Butler help enhance your experience? IFSA-Butler made my study abroad experience unforgettable. From the incredible support throughout the entire experience to the unique and amazing excursions, there isn’t a time that I am not thankful for the IFSA-Butler staff.

What was your favorite class in Wales? I took a couple of biology classes to keep up with my major. I also got to take a class on Wales and the Welsh Language where we got to take a trip to the Welsh Senate and meet with the Welsh Prime Minister, and I took a British Television class that took us on a field trip to the Doctor Who Experience in Cardiff Bay.

What advice do you have for future Wales students?

“Cardiff has the big city feel without being too overwhelming, but also still provides easy and affordable access to London and the rest of the U.K.”

Research, research research. Watch some British TV, read some of those Buzzfeed lists about the country you’re going to, and read blogs from other students who have lived there. If you really want to get to know the culture, take a class about their language or their history. Learning about your host country is a great way to feel less like a tourist.
