As a student who had never travelled to Europe before, Wales was the perfect country for me to spend my semester abroad. IFSA-Butler helped me choose a program that would work for me and my studies. Once I had applied and been accepted, they played an active role in keeping me up-to-date and on-track before leaving for the semester. Once I had arrived, IFSA-Butler never stopped showing support, even when they handed me off to Cardiff University, where I studied abroad. Cardiff was a perfect fit for me, having great programs and even greater faculty and staff. The programming for international students was a bit confusing at first, but ended up being exactly what I needed. Throughout my experience, I was able to learn new things that applied to my majors and my own personal growth. Returning from my semester abroad, I only wished I had stayed longer because of the impact the experience had on me. Every person I talk to about it, I recommend that they study abroad because of the incredible opportunity it turned out to be and the amazing opportunities that have presented themselves to me after coming back to my home university.
