Sites that Accept Direct Member Sophomores

Definition: “Sophomores” refer to students who have successfully completed the equivalent of one year’s worth of credit at the level by the time they begin their exchange or study-abroad program.

The list below includes all international member institutions accepting qualified sophomores. Sites marked with a check in the right column are recommended for sophomores.

When advising students applying for an exchange or study-abroad program during their sophomore year, please keep in mind the following:

Academic Considerations

Does the student have the pre-requisites for the courses available at the host institution?

English Language Sites

Countries where the language of instruction is not English

Personal Considerations

Placement Considerations

Students applying for ISEP after completing only one or two semesters of college-level work (often in survey courses where professors do not get to know students well enough to write recommendations) may be at a disadvantage when applying for sites with limited openings. Flexibility with regard to sites is recommended.
