Semester or Year in Sweden
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.

The Swedes invest more per capita in research and development than any other country in the world "in medical, technological and environmental areas as well as social research" with an emphasis on translating new ideas into practice. University curricula at all six ISEP member institutions in Sweden reflect this trend but also provide strong programs in business, humanities, political and social sciences. Numerous courses are taught in English and attended by Swedish as well as international students. Support services for international students are excellent and ISEP students are allowed to work in Sweden while on exchange.
CHANCES OF PLACEMENT
Chances for placement in engineering and social sciences are excellent. Other fields may be more competitive.
