Foundation for International Education
Brothers are encouraged to take advantage of ZBT’s semester program in London that incorporates 14 weeks of study through the Foundation for International Education. The semester is divided into two phases with an orientation at the start and a mid-term break, for a total of 15.5 weeks.
A semester with FIE in London prepares ZBT brothers to build on their existing competencies, skills, attitudes, beliefs and experiences needed to compete and cooperate in the world marketplace.
- Study British Life and Cultures or British Life in Europe (required Key Course)
- Interactions with fraternity members in London and discuss similarities and differences between U.K. and U.S. fraternity life
- Work or Service internship opportunities (integrated experiences combining workplace experience and academic discussion and reflection)
- Self-directed research opportunity. (Under faculty guidance, a brother can undertake independent, London-based qualitative research)
KAHAL aspires to give the tens of thousands of Jewish students studying abroad each year the resources, tools, and connections they need to meaningfully engage with the Jewish community and deepen their Jewish identity during one of the most important, meaningful, and enduring experiences of their lives.
Wherever you’re traveling, whether it’s London or Lisbon, Paris or Prague, Shanghai or Sydney, KAHAL will connect you to immersive experiences in your local community or one nearby. Working with local Jewish students, families, organizations, and community leaders, KAHAL will set you up with exciting experiences. In addition, they have great DIY resources for students who may not have a Jewish community in their host city.
