Application Timeline

ISEP processes applications for placements throughout the year, although priority deadlines for two main placement rounds do exist.  Please remember that ISEP only accepts applications for students nominated by their home institution, so submit all materials directly to your home Coordinator.  If interested in the path your application will take once submitted, please read about the Placement Process.

There is no priority deadline for ISEP-Direct semester or year-long programs. Check the sites available for application on our homepage for further details. Placements are made on a rolling admissions basis and students generally have a good chance of placement.

For ISEP-Exchanges, your institution will likely have an earlier deadline in order to review and mail applications to ISEP. Check with your ISEP Coordinator.
