International Student Exchange Program

If you are looking for a low-cost alternative for a semester or academic
year abroad, and you could not find an exchange through the University of
Georgia that fit your needs, you should consider the International Student
Exchange Program. You can attend one of their exchanges through Valdosta
University, for more or less the cost of Valdosta tuition plus living
expenses. In an exchange program, you are placed directly into a foreign
university and attend classes with students from the host country. For
exchanges in non-English speaking countries, you will usually need 2
college years of the language of the country, although there are some
exceptions. For more information on the exchanges they offer, please see
their web site at: <http://www.isep.org>. If you find a program that
interests you, contact Lindsey Parsons at 542-7903.
