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.
ISEP for All
If you are an institution that is not a member, your students can still participate in our programs. As an inclusive organization dedicated to improving student access to study abroad, we have opened 13 of our universities offering ISEP Direct programs to any student from an accredited institution of higher education. Highly rated for providing excellent student experiences, high-quality academic programs and exemplary on-site support, we have nominated these 13 universities because we believe they represent some of the best our membership can offer. Like ISEP Direct, your student will pay ISEP the program fee, and we will work with your institution to help manage the agreement with your student’s selected ISEP institution.
