Membership Types

ISEP Exchange Membership

For every student sent abroad, your institution receives one in return. Inbound students can be from any ISEP Exchange member institution. Placement at an ISEP member institution depends on your student’s academic qualifications and available exchange space. Once placed, your student pays you the cost of an academic term (such as tuition, housing and meals) and ISEP a one-time placement fee. In return, we take care of facilitating student exchanges among you and other ISEP members, managing both your agreement and balance with ISEP.

ISEP Direct Membership

Each student pays a fee to ISEP that covers their host institution’s program cost. Programs are either direct enroll courses, like on ISEP Exchange, or specialized programs focused on a specific language, culture or academic field. We manage your agreements with other ISEP members and your students will be guaranteed placement at any ISEP Direct host institution.
