On Wednesday, October 30 from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m., UK Education Abroad (EA) will hold an exchanges event in the EA Resource Center (315 Bradley Hall).
During this time, students may drop-in to learn more about various exchange programs, chat with exchange program alumni, and hear from current international exchange students about their home institution.
Free snacks, coffee and tea will be available.
Exchange programs are generally low-cost programs that allow UK students to trade places with students at our partner institutions abroad. Education Abroad facilitates three types of exchange programs, all of which allow students to pay regular UK tuition and fees, but spend the summer, semester or academic year abroad.
University-Wide Exchanges. UK has established exchange agreements with specific universities abroad that allow UK students from any major to attend these universities for a summer, semester, or academic year. Each student pays his or her regular UK tuition and fees and in some cases may be asked to pay the equivalent of UK room and board. In this case, the student receives room and board while abroad.
College and Department-Specific Exchanges. Several of UK's colleges have established exchange agreements with institutions abroad specifically for their majors. For example, the Gatton College of Business and Economics has developed numerous exchange opportunities specifically for its students. (Please visit the Gatton Education Abroad website for more information on these exchanges.)
International Student Exchange Program (ISEP Exchange). UK is a member of the ISEP network, a multilateral exchange program in 40 different countries at over 100 overseas institutions. All ISEP exchanges include room and board. Please note that ISEP deadlines are often far in advance and that students should apply early to ensure that they get their first choice of host institution.
