ISEP is an international nonprofit organization headquartered in Washington, D.C. ISEP coordinates student exchanges between the United States and 42 other countries. In addition, ISEP has an international -to-international program facilitating exchanges between ISEP member universities based outside the United States. During the last THIRTY years, ISEP has successfully sent more than 34,000 students on international exchanges and study abroad programs all over the world.
ISEP and MAUI-Utrecht are total immersion programs. In most cases, ISEP and MAUI-Utrecht participants register as a regular student at the host institution, take the same courses and have the same assignments, and participate in the same activities as the local students at that institution. This means that a student applying for an ISEP or a MAUI-Utrecht site must be more proactive and prepared to handle being in a location where they may be the only KU student in the program.
Finland is known for its unspoiled natural scenery, vast areas of lakes and forests, saunas and the midnight sun as well as for clean modern cities showcasing great architecture and design and a rich variety of cultural activities. A world leader in technology (think Nokia cell phones), Finland has one of the highest standards of living in the world. You couldn’t ask for more in a study abroad destination!
