I am traveling to India through the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP).
ISEP offers a vast amount of countries to study in through two programs, Exchange and Direct. With Exchange, you home school is essentially trading a student at their university for one at the international university. Therefore, the student continues to pay expenses at their home university like normal. India is on the the ISEP-Direct program, meaning I will be paying and enrolling with the university directly.
There are pros and cons to both sides. The downside, is that in ISEP-Direct you are not able to use your university scholarships like you can with Exchange. However, I can still obtain all of my federal loans and grants. India happens to be a cheaper country to study in so financially it works out very similarly.
ISEP also provides materials for students to prepare for their study abroad experience.
- Student Handbooks
