University is a unique time in your life when you can take liberties you can't later in life. Studying abroad increased my confidence and willingness to take risks. Going on exchange allowed me to integrate travel with my other goals, and it was a frugal way to travel. If you can mitigate regret in your life, its the hugest gift to your future self.
Emily, a Psychology major, studied abroad on exchange for a full year with one of our ISEP partners in the United Kingdom
I've travelled the world, stayed in hostels, but that doesn't compare to the experience of living abroad while studying. Through an exchange you get to dive under the surface of things. You learn the intricacies of a place when you're living there for several months. Although I was in non-English speaking countries (Japan and South Korea) I was able to take classes in English and make friends with people from all over the world.
Dyson, a Computing Science student, went on exchange twice and studied with bilateral partners Toyo University in Japan and Kyung Hee Univeristy in South Korea
