Semester or Year in Switzerland
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 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.

Snow-covered Alpine peaks, geopolitical neutrality, high-tech watches, gourmet chocolate, yodeling mountaineers, and sophisticated banking are the Switzerland you know. However, ISEP’s and MAUI-Utrecht's Swiss institutions offer exciting academic and extracurricular opportunities to immerse yourself in the dynamic, youthful, and high-tech Switzerland that you have yet to discover.
Through ISEP you can explore the linguistic diversity of the Confederation by studying at Fribourg, Europe’s only French- and German-speaking university. Or you can perfect your skiing and sailing skills while mastering your French along the majestic lake town of Lausanne. For those interested in studying politics in German and economics in English while watching high profile politics and economics unfold before your eyes, there is no better place than the capital city of Bern. Through MAUI-Utrecht, you can attend the largest carnival in all of Switzerland in Basel while also learning the French and German languages since Basel borders both countries.
Universität Basel: most faculties are taught in either French or German, but there are certain courses that can be found in English. In addition, Basel offers summer courses for exchange students. The university will reimburse students for one preparatory language course. French, German, and English Course Options
