Courses
Open the University of Queensland online course catalog to explore the available course offerings. When searching, keep in mind the campus that the classes are offered on, as students must generally remain at the St. Lucia campus. 

A full course load at University of Queensland is 8 credits for the semester (equivalent to 15-16 U.S. semester credit hours) and 16 credits for the year (equivalent to 30-32 U.S. semester credit hours). The number of courses you must take depends on the credit value of the courses. Choose courses in any combination of credit values, as long as their total value equals a full course load. 

1 UQ credit = 2 U.S. semester credit hours

Please review all your syllabi and course materials when you are registering for classes (both pre-arrival and on-site). Certain classes may have a one-off lab or field trip fee that is disclosed in the syllabus or first meeting of class. You will be responsible for these fees, whether they are billed and paid by IFSA-Butler or billed to you.
 
Special Curriculum Options
GATTON CAMPUS OPTION
Students interested in an extremely rural and very independent semester can contact the program advisor for more information about University of Queensland Gatton Campus, a leading center for animal and veterinary science, food science/nutrition, agriculture and the environment.
Course Restrictions
Please note that you will have to fulfill any prerequisites listed in the course description. Generally, you must have some background in the subjects you wish to study at your host institution. On the course preference form, list only those courses for which you are academically prepared. Study abroad students can only take classes number 3999 and below. Study abroad students are not allowed to take courses above this level because they are graduate and honors courses.
Transcripts
After you return to the U.S., IFSA-Butler will send a Butler University transcript to your home university and to your permanent address. The transcript reflects the courses taken, credits attempted, and grades earned during your term abroad. This service is included in your study abroad program at no additional cost
