For more than 40 years, ISEP has partnered with universities and colleges around the world for solutions to help them reach their internationalization goals. In this time, we have grown into the largest global community for study, intern and volunteer abroad programs.

We offer an impressive array of ISEP Exchange and ISEP Direct programs among a global community of more than 300 universities and colleges in over 50 countries. More than 60,000 students from our member institutions have participated in our semester-long, full-year, and summer programs. With ISEP, students have unmatched access to high-quality academic opportunities, authentic local experiences and exceptional support.

As a non-profit organization, our first job is to break down financial and academic barriers to make study abroad accessible for all. ISEP programs are immersive, affordable and life-changing. Our students develop highly desirable skills for life and future employment, from an openness and respect to people and new ideas, to greater flexibility, problem solving, the ability to communicate and most importantly, a transformative self-confidence that can only come from such an authentic experience.

Our Impact

Our Impact is the difference an ISEP experience has on a student’s life – the cultivation of global skills for employability, openness to difference, self-awareness and the desire to contribute to a more peaceful, just and inclusive world.
