Living Arrangements: IFSA-Butler arranges housing prior to arrival for Emory students. Students receive complete information about housing options after their applications are accepted. Housing is NOT provided before the program begins or after it ends. Because of its size, the University of Sydney has numerous housing options for students. IFSA-Butler students live in residential colleges, university apartments, or in housing with other IFSA-Butler students. Most of the University of Sydney housing options require a commute to campus. Students pay IFSA-Butler directly for all housing costs (including refundable housing deposit) and cost of meal ticket if elected or required.

Costs: A full description of the program costs and billing procedures is available in the budget sheets. Please click here for Budget Sheets Fall Spring

Financial Aid/Scholarships: Students are eligible to carry existing financial aid and scholarships on Emory-approved study abroad programs. Students may also be eligible to apply for the following scholarships: IFSA-Butler Scholarship/Travel Grant and the Gilman Scholarship. Study Abroad Scholarships, Grants, Research & Service
