ISEP is a non-profit educational community dedicated to helping students overcome financial and academic barriers to study abroad. In partnership with over 300 member institutions in more than 50 countries, we have sent over 54,000 students on life-changing study abroad programs since 1979.

We directly enroll our students into classes at our member institutions because we value the full immersion that can only come from living and learning alongside locals. Our direct enrollment model broadens academic understanding as students engage in a curriculum presented through perspectives different from their home country. Furthermore, by utilizing existing academic resources at our member universities, we provide students with access to affordable, high-quality programs that help develop culturally sensitive skills needed for today’s global workforce.
