Participants are enrolled in courses at an ISEP member institution and are fully immersed in the host university. This model facilitates intercultural competence and broadens academic understanding as students engage in a curriculum presented through perspectives different from their home country. Students can choose from two types of programs, ISEP Exchange and ISEP Direct. These programs are differentiated by their financial structures, chance of placement, and application deadlines.
Use "More Filters" to select ISEP Exchange or ISEP Direct program options.
ISEP Exchange programs allow participants to swap spots with a student from another ISEP Exchange institution as an international student. ISEP Exchange follows the Hampshire Exchange structure, whereby students pay tuition and fees to Hampshire making the cost of study abroad comparable to a semester on campus. Applicants choose up to 10 universities and are placed at the best option depending on exchange space and academic needs. More information on the ISEP Exchange program can be found at ISEP Study Abroad Types, Fees & Deadlines.
