UCL & IFSA Butler were amazing!

IFSA Butler made my entire abroad experience a million times better. The application process was easy and straightforward. I didn't feel overwhelmed or stressed about this process because IFSA staff were responsive via email and phone, and answered any questions I had along the way. Once in London, the staff was so welcoming and supportive. I reached out to them several times when I had concerns about my academics and social life, and they made sure to check in with me every so often to see how I was doing. UCL had really great psychology courses, with professors/lecturers that were specialists in a myriad of topics. My housing accomodations were in a great location and really helped me immerse myself in both London and UCL culture. IFSA also organized several trips outside London, which gave me the opportunity to experience England beyond the city and university. Overall IFSA was incredible. I would recommend their programs to anyone!

Butler was on top of its game from the start, beginning with important emails before departure to constant support throughout my time in London. There were also several cultural trips that were included in the cost of the program and they mad an effort to get the students to experience the culture

UCL had a great location in the center of London. The classes were challenging and interesting and a lot of the professors were leading researchers in their field. The program, however, was very unorganized and the administration was extremely unhelpful. It kind of felt like you were just thrown into London and left to figure things out on your own. My dorm had a great location but the living conditions weren't great and the food was terrible.

I highly recommend going through IFSA-Butler. They provide good and useful services there - e.g. transport from the airport, separate orientation, weekend excursions, and counseling and advice. The staff is also really friendly. I had a really memorable experience on this program!

This was an amazing experience - one of the best decisions I made in school. Academically, maybe not as great as Penn but still amazing for the cultural exposure

    We are glad you had a great time! Could you tell us what made you rank academics so low at UCL?
