ISEP allows a student at UNK to enroll directly in a foreign university for a year of study and earn academic credit toward a degree at UNK. Through ISEP, a student may study at a member institution in Africa, Asia, Australia, Canada, Europe or Latin America. ISEP has member institutions in more than 20 countries on six continents including sites in Bangladesh, Brazil, Finland, France, the Cote d'Ivoire, Malta, Mexico, The Netherlands, Togo and many, many others. As an ISEP participant a student enrolls as a regular student at a host institution, taking the same courses as regularly enrolled students at that institution. ISEP exchanges are small in scale; only a few students go to each participating institution abroad.
This means that an ISEP participant is immersed in the culture and exposed to new ideas and new world views.
The cost for this ISEP experience is the same as one academic year at UNK plus a $300 placement fee paid to ISEP and international health insurance. Through a simplified admissions policy, the UNK student pays room and board at UNK and receives equal benefits at the foreign institution. For more information about this exchange program, please contact the ISEP coordinator on campus, Ann Marie Harr, Study Abroad advisor.
