The ISEP Exchange program offers around 100 universities in 50 countries. ISEP Exchange is a paid program but a financial support is offered by the University of Fribourg. However, you must pass a selection because the number of places is limited and placement in the university of your first choice is not guaranteed. ISEP Exchange Program

With the paid ISEP Direct program you have the opportunity to study at a member university of your choice. There is no selection, but you must pay all the registration and study fees that are determined by each host university. ISEP Direct Program
