ISEP is a worldwide network for international education, consisting of over 300 member universities in the United States and over 50 other countries. ISEP is a nonprofit membership organization providing affordable study abroad and exchange options for over 40,000 students since 1979.
Each ISEP member university designates a staff member to be the ISEP Coordinator. Your on-campus ISEP Coordinator will advise you and help you through the application and placement process. There will also be an ISEP Coordinator at the host university who will help with your academic and housing arrangements, provide an on-site orientation, and serve as your local resource.
The ISEP Staff in Washington, DC evaluate students’ applications, make placements, and facilitate the exchange process by serving as the communication link between the ISEP Coordinators in the U.S. and around the world. ISEP also sends the transcript from your host to home university.
You can study at one of the over 140 member universities in the United States. If your university participates inInternational-to-International ISEP-Exchanges, there are over 30 additional countries to choose from. See the Directory (top right) or Search for a Program for details.
The ISEP experience is a unique opportunity to really learn about another country through immersion in the host culture. Students are fully integrated in the host university, and typically enroll in the same courses and live similarly to the student of that country. Students on ISEP programs welcome the differences and challenges that life in another culture brings, and have the maturity and flexibility to succeed in a more independent type of study abroad program.
