Announcing New ISEP Direct Programs in the United States

December 19, 2019

In response to student demand for programs in popular destinations like California, New York City, and other beautiful locations, we have partnered with members to offer five new ISEP Direct programs in the United States. These include California universities, California State University, San Marcos and San Jose State University; St. Peter’s University, just outside of New York City; and top East Coast institutions, UNC Charlotte and Western Carolina University, situated between the stunning Blue Ridge and Great Smoky Mountains.

Students can now guarantee their placement at these institutions on ISEP Direct, if they meet the minimum requirements, without having to rely on highly competitive exchange space at these popular locations.
