Researching Exchanges

Please go directly to the program’s webpage for more information! You should consider the following things (and more!) when deciding which Exchange is best for you:

  • Program Dates – some locations have semester dates that are drastically different than those in the U.S. Check on the university's website directly for the exact dates for your semester of interest, which typically include an international student orientation at the beginning and an exam period at the end.
  • Course Options – make sure that the courses offered at the host university will keep you on track here at Butler. You can do this by creating a four-, five-, or six-year plan with your academic advisor. See what you would take during a "normal" semester here at Butler and use that information to research if the university you're interested in studying abroad at offers similar courses. You will get your study abroad courses approved after you've been accepted to your program with a Course Approval Form from the CGE; this form is available in mid-October for the following spring semester and mid-March for the following fall semester in the CGE's pre-departure packet.
  • Housing Options – see what options are available, if they are of interest, and if they are within your price range. Many study abroad programs do not include a meal plan, so factor that into your budget.
  • Clubs & Activities Available – determine what you could get involved in at the host institution to round out your study abroad experience and meet local students.
  • Language requirements and intensive language learning opportunities are not available at this institution, as the host language is English!

Hobart Campus

The University of Tasmania's Sandy Bay campus is set on 100 hectares in the beachside suburb of Sandy Bay, five minutes' drive south of the city center. This scenic campus sits between Mount Wellington and the Derwent River and is partially fringed by natural bushland, but is also located within a busy urban community. The campus is close to shops, transport, accommodation, entertainment and services and is just a short walk to Hobart and drive from Hobart Airport.

Many of the University's faculties are based at the Sandy Bay campus, and share close links with our city-based satellite campuses including the Conservatorium of Music, the Tasmanian College of the Arts and Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies on Hobart's waterfront, the multi-million dollar Medical Sciences Precinct, which is home to the Faculty of Health and the Menzies Research Institute, and the Domain. The University of Tasmania is planning further expansion of facilities in the Hobart CBD, with the Academy of Creative Industries and Performing Arts which is proposed to be built on the car park next to the Theatre Royal.

The Faculty of Science, Engineering and Technology (SET) has off-campus facilities in the south, including the University Farm near Richmond, which is the site for agricultural research. The University's observatories and the Grote Reber Physics Museum are located at Cambridge, near Hobart.

Financial Information

If you accept your Exchange placement, you will continue to pay Butler University tuition for your semester abroad, instead of the tuition cost listed on the university’s website. Additionally, you will receive 100% of your federal financial aid and 100% of your Butler University institutional aid and scholarships for your semester abroad. You will be billed for your Butler tuition and activity fee, as well as the study abroad fee, through your Butler student account. You are responsible for paying your host university’s housing costs and must be prepared to pay these fees to the host university upon arrival. In addition to the costs previously listed, you are also responsible for your own international airfare*, passport/visa expenses, additional health insurance, and all personal/travel expenses. 

*Please note that the dates listed on this program’s itinerary are tentative and should not be used to book flights.

Application Instructions

This is considered a Butler Exchange program. As a Butler University student, you will first apply internally with the CGE through this online application system (click "Apply Now" at the top of this page). Please remember that Exchanges are not guaranteed placements! The CGE will do their best to place you at your preferred university, but they cannot guarantee that your top choice will be available.
