Semester or Year in Japan
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.

Although Japan is one of the most innovative and modern countries in the world in terms of economic and technological advances, this island nation in Asia has still managed to hold onto many of its traditions and customs. It is this contradiction that makes Japan a fascinating place to live and to study.
All members offer various levels of Japanese language instruction, as well as Japanese cultural studies.
Chances of Placement
ISEP-Exchange placements are limited. Exchange space typically fills during the February placement round; students should apply for spring semester programs by February 15.
Due to the competitive nature of placement in Japan, dual placement at two Japanese universities is not an option.
