ISIT International Exchange Program
Students from nearly 100 partner institutions around the world may study at ISIT for one or two semesters, as part of the ERASMUS+ (Europe) program and through other reciprocal agreements.
Things to remember about student exchanges:
- Duration: a semester or a year at ISIT, depending on your home university’s requirements.
- Fee: you do not pay tuition at ISIT. You pay your home university tuition.
- Credits transfer: students will receive credits that may be applied to their home university degree. The credit approval process is explained during ISIT orientation days.
Apply for an exchange at ISIT
- Verify that your university has signed an agreement with ISIT.
- Contact your school’s International Relations or other appropriate department to move forward with the selection process. Your application is official when ISIT receives email notification from your university that you’ve been approved for an exchange the following academic year.
- Our International Office will then send you an email with our application kit and practical information.
