ISEP is one of the most popular ways for students to study abroad in the USA. Here's what you need to know about it!

1. What is ISEP?

ISEP stands for International Student Exchange Programs. It's a network that organises student exchanges around the world! ISEP has over 300 member universities in the USA and over 50 other countries. With an ISEP-Exchange placement, you can study abroad for a semester or a year.

2. Where can I go?

ISEP organises exchanges with a huge list of over 140 U.S. institutions. Check out the full list here!

If you have a particular location in mind, you can search on the ISEP website to see if they have an available exchange program.

Remember: Exchanges are based on a balance of students exchanging places, so a university can only accept as many students as it sends out. This means you may have to be flexible about the destination.

3. How much does it cost?

ISEP is one of the most affordable ways to study abroad. Students pay a fee to their home university based on the cost of tuition, fees, housing and food at your host institution. You also pay a placement fee to ISEP, which varies depending on the type of placement you do.

For a standard ISEP-Exchange, the non-refundable fee is $395. Check out a full list of fees here.

Remember: You will have to cover the cost of transportation, health insurance, visa fees, books and other personal expenses.

4. How can I apply?

Only students who attend ISEP International member universities are eligible to apply for an ISEP exchange. To find out whether your UK university is a member, have a look at this list or ask a member of your Study Abroad team.

If your university is an ISEP International member, you will have a dedicated ISEP Coordinator on site who will advise you and help you through the application process!

If you're preparing to spend time abroad, it's worth considering a Fair FX currency card instead of setting up a foreign bank account. Find out more!
