What Is ISEP Direct?

ISEP Direct provides an independent, cultural immersion experience for students wishing to enroll directly in a host institution abroad on a fee paying basis. ISEP offers a support network that includes on-site orientation, academic counseling, international health insurance, and crisis management. Summer, semester, and full year placements are available.

  • Regular University Courses - In most cases, students directly enroll in the host ISEP Direct University and take classes alongside local students in the host language. In many cases, a variety of regular university courses are available in English at non-English speaking sites.
  • Unique Program Content - Many ISEP Direct host institutions have developed special language and culture programs, offering English-language curricula in non-English speaking sites.
  • Support - A local Coordinator from the host institution will help you settle in, provide an orientation, assist with registration, and be available for counseling. ISEP Direct programs include international health insurance and crisis management.
  • Placement Chances - Chances of placement are excellent for qualified applicants, as most programs do not have limitations on the number of participants.
