Programs vary in length, but students’ options include programs which take place in the summer, fall, spring, or for the full academic year.
ISEP Direct Programs
ISEP is a network of over 300 colleges and universities in 50 countries cooperating to provide access to international education for students. Participants gain intercultural competence through integration into their host institutions and host cultures while exploring the international dimensions of their academic fields. Purdue University Calumet has a direct membership with ISEP, meaning that students are limited to participation in programs marked “direct” by ISEP. Students may choose a program which takes place in the summer, fall, spring, or for the full academic year.
