ISEP is a total immersion program. In most cases, ISEP 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 site must be more proactive and prepared to handle being in a location where they may be the only KU student in the program.

For more information on ISEP sites in Chile, visit the general ISEP Website. Specific school links are in the "Academic Information" section below.

Discover the warmth of Chile with the welcoming people and beautiful beaches. From the Atacama Desert in the North, the coastal region to the West, the Andes mountains to the East, and glaciers, fjords and lakes in the South, this land of "Fire and Ice" has some of the most diverse landscapes in the world. Enjoy the finest vineyards while eating an amazing array of fresh seafood in Latin America’s most economically and politically stable country. See political history in the making as the first female President takes office, read world famous literature by Pablo Neruda and Isabel Allende, and perfect your Spanish - all while soaking up the beauty of Chile!

Study abroad is achievable for students of all identities including our BIPOC and LGBTQIA+ students, students with disabilities, and students with religious/non-religious viewpoints. Before selecting a program, consider how your identities may impact your experience abroad in unique ways and talk with your Program Coordinator about any program-specific concerns. Students with documented disabilities should discuss any accommodation needs with their Program Coordinator early in the planning process.
