About Us: The Institute for Study Abroad, Butler University
University of Canterbury Top in Engineering

The University of Canterbury in Christchurch, New Zealand, is ranked in the top one percent in the world in civil and structural engineering programs according to the 2015 QS World University Rankings. IFSA-Butler sends many engineering majors from throughout the U.S. to New Zealand each year, with Canterbury being one of the top choices as a study destination.

The University of Canterbury offers a wide range of subjects in addition to engineering. IFSA-Butler students may study at Canterbury for the fall, spring, academic year (July to June) or calendar year (February to November).

IFSA-Butler Remembers Founder M. Jean White

IFSA-Butler is deeply saddened to announce the death of M. Jean White, who passed away in hospice care at her home in Chicago on May 7. Jean joined Dr. David Gray and Tom Roberts in the founding of IFSA-Butler in 1988 and was our treasurer until her retirement in 2002. Even after her retirement she remained an active part of the IFSA-Butler family as a member of our Board of Trustees.

We will always remember Jean's boisterous laugh, caring nature, no-nonsense personality and fearless driving—Chicago to Indianapolis in two hours! We extend our sympathies to all of Jean's family, friends and colleagues in international education.

York Named Safest City in the World

Tourists have named York, England, as the safest city in the world. This safety distinction came as the result of a survey conducted by Post Office Travel Insurance.

IFSA-Butler offers semester and year study at the University of York. The university is located just 15 minutes from the heart of the city and consistently ranks as one of the U.K.'s most prestigious universities.

IFSA-Butler Nominated Twice for GoAbroad Innovation Awards

IFSA-Butler is delighted to be named a finalist in the 2015 GoAbroad Innovation Awards. IFSA-Butler was nominated in the categories of Innovation in Diversity and Innovative New Program-Study Abroad. 

Our Innovation in Diversity nomination is for our UpFront program, which bills certain out-of-pocket study abroad expenses to a student's account so that the student can pay the costs via our monthly payment plan, or with financial aid. This innovative service helps participants and their parents overcome the burden of excessive expenses before study abroad.

Our Innovative New Program nomination is for the Summer Nursing and Pre-Health Program in Coleraine, Northern Ireland. This program, developed in partnership with the University of Kentucky, offers two core courses that are ideal for nursing, pre-health, biology or other health science majors. Students from any U.S. or Canadian university are welcome to enroll in this program.

Winners will be announced at the 2015 NAFSA conference in Boston.
