In "Ever to Excel," Connery tells the story of St. Andrews, which was founded in 1413 and was Scotland's first university. The university remains one of the most prestigious in the United Kingdom and is an excellent study abroad choice for students in a wide range of subjects.

Deadline Approaching for Fill the GAP Contributions

Fill the GAP allows students to save in advance for an IFSA-Butler study abroad program. Participants may enroll as early as their first semester in college, and IFSA-Butler offers a matching scholarship up to $1,000 for semester and year programs.

IFSA-Butler does not offer a matching scholarship for summer programs, though summer students are still able to participate in Fill the GAP.

Great Opportunity in Scotland for Pre-Med Students

IFSA-Butler and the University of St. Andrews are proud to offer a terrific pre-med opportunity for fall semester students. This option is geared toward participants who plan to attend medical school after graduation.

The fall pre-med option includes an Organic Chemistry course that is designed exclusively for IFSA-Butler pre-med students and taught by St. Andrews faculty. Students can round out their fall semester with other related courses from St. Andrews' science schools, which offer study in areas such as biology, biochemistry, physiology, neuroscience, pharmacology, etc. or they can choose courses from non-science schools at St. Andrews.

There is no additional charge for the pre-med option. Please contact your IFSA-Butler program advisor for more information or for a syllabus.
