Semester or Year in Turkey
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.

Most classes at universities in Turkey combine larger weekly lectures with smaller follow-up discussion sessions and meet for two to three hours on average per week. Similar to the U.S. academic system, class attendance and participation are an important factor in student grades. Periodic tests, quizzes, and class assignments are also quite common.
