ISEP is a network of over 300 colleges and universities in 50 countries cooperating to provide affordable access to international education for a diverse student population. ISEP students gain intercultural competence through integration into their host institution and culture while exploring the international dimensions of their academic field.

ISEP-Exchange. Each outbound participant pays the cost of an academic term (tuition, housing and meals) at the home institution, for every student sent abroad, the institution receives one in return. ISEP facilitates the exchanges between our members world wide and manages the exchange balances.

ISEP-Direct. Is a fee-paid study abroad program at member institutions, open to all ISEP-Direct and ISEP-Exchange members; participants pay a fee to ISEP, which covers the host institution’s program cost but get direct placement.

ISEP participants

  • Are as fully integrated into their host institution as their length of stay and language skills permit
  • Gain understanding of the international dimensions of their academic field
  • Develop intercultural competence and personal maturity through immersion in another culture
