Studying Business Overseas
How much does it cost?
Except for the cost of international airfare, it should be no
more expensive to spend a semester at one of Butler's foreign
exchange partners than to spend the same semester here at Butler.
Again, because these are reciprocal exchanges, you can use 100
percent of your Butler institutional financial aid (i.e.,
scholarships) to support your time abroad.
When you study abroad for a semester through one of Butler's
reciprocal exchange programs, you will pay your regular tuition
(and mandatory) fees to Butler just as though you were studying on
campus. Financial arrangements for housing can vary from program to
program, but in most cases, you will pay housing fees directly to
the host university. (For the Lingnan University exchange, you will
pay Butler for a double room in ResCo and will receive similar
housing at Lingnan at no additional charge.)
Other expenses include a passport (approximately $100), student
visa and/or residence permit, mandatory health insurance (in some
countries), meals, books, international travel and other personal
and incidental expenses. Your own preferences and choices regarding
entertainment, food, personal travel, etc. will have a substantial
impact on how much it costs to participate in a Butler CBA exchange
