Students selected for an ISEP-Exchange program will pay Westminster tuition, room, and meals, and a $300 Westminster study abroad fee. Students will be billed for ISEP-Exchange fees through their Westminster tuition account. In addition, students pay a $100 application fee and a $395 placement fee directly to ISEP. Students are also required to purchase international health insurance at $95 per month and are responsible for airfare, visa fees, and additional travel and living expenses. ISEP’s budget calculator is a useful tool to determine the actual cost of an ISEP program.
Students interested in ISEP programs are encouraged to carefully read the information provided on the ISEP website under “How It Works.” Students must consider various criteria when narrowing down programs, including academic requirements, language level, location, dates, and the chance of placement. Some universities have less space available than others (typically western Europe and the Pacific), so students should check the chance of placement under the “Semester and Price” section of each university’s information. Students are eligible to apply to up to 10 universities with a single application and fee, so students are more likely to be accepted to a university on exchange.
