ISEP (International Student Exchange Program) is a network of colleges and universities 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 host culture while exploring the international dimensions of their academic field. Our membership provides an opportunity for Hampshire students to study in some of the most highly-regarded institutions in the world.

For every student Hampshire sends to an ISEP-affiliated school, ISEP sends an international student to study at Hampshire College. This exchange enriches the Hampshire community by offering exceptional study abroad opportunities as well as increasing the number of international students on campus.
Through ISEP, students can choose from two program options (1) ISEP-Exchange and (2) ISEP-Direct. The ISEP-Exchange Program functions as a normal Hampshire Exchange Program (regarding tuition and fees) while the ISEP-Direct program functions as a field study. ISEP placements are competitive, have early deadlines, and require additional application procedures. Please check with the ISEP coordinator in the global education office if you are interested.

Some students keep blogs while studying abroad. Andrea Gagne 08F, who studied in Ghana through ISEP, and Brittney Sampso 08F, who studied in South Africa, are two examples.
