|1. Exchange & Study Abroad
KU has established extensive links with many universities internationally through its student exchange program (SEP), which was developed as part of its internationalization process. This program now involves almost two thousand students to and from countries in Asia-Pacific, Europe, North and South America.
The benefits of KU exchange students vary according to the terms and conditions of the exchange agreement KU has concluded with each institution. Based on the principle of reciprocal exchange of benefits, our standard exchange agreements regulate student tuition fees waiver at host universities: however, students are responsible for room and board. Exchange students are also responsible for their own travel, medical insurance and other personal expenses.
International students whose home institutions do not have an exchange agreement with KU nor has links with ISEP can also apply to study at KU through the visiting student program (VSP).
