Overall Experience
I was able to complete my religion minor in a city of such complex religious and political conflict, and was able to travel to incredibly historic places throughout Ireland and the UK. I learned so much from meeting local people, travelling with other students, and developing my cross cultural skills. - Luther College View Entire Review
The main reason I wanted to go to NI was to learn about it's history and what happened between the UK and Ireland. I also wanted to discover more about myself as a writer, and surprisingly figured out what I want to do after I graduate. Yes, some things pissed me off and money was hard to manage, but I am so grateful that I was ... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

I learned how to omit the logic. Yes, I must say it was very worthwhile. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Yes! I gained a better understanding of the world around me, how it feels to be a minority, and immense independence. This experience has made me want to travel all over the world and given me the drive to do so! - Berea College View Entire Review

I learned so much about my own field through living in Belfast, and I learned how to let lose and have a good time while still being productive and learning things. - Millsaps College View Entire Review
I was able to experience both sides of an extremely divided community and to, therefore, better my understanding of global issues. Additionally, I was also able to realize the value of the open-minded education I had received in America. It was definitely worthwhile. - Austin College View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with IFSA-Butler: Belfast - Queen's University Belfast
During my study abroad experience I learned more about myself and the things I enjoy that I may never have taken part in had I not gone abroad.

We also offer special opportunities such as First Generation College Student scholarships and a Fill the GAP study abroad savings program that matches contributions up to $1,000. Plus, any student attending a public institution or an MSI (minority serving institution) is automatically eligible for either the IFSA State School Grant or the IFSA MSI Grant. Both are worth $2,000 off the program price.
