Where Can I Go?


The Student Exchange Program (SEP) enables BYU students to enroll in an international partner school for a full semester -- paying BYU tuition and receiving BYU credit. This is an independent international experience. Unlike a traditional study abroad program, in which a student travels with a professor-mentored group of students, direct enrollment involves individual students immersing themselves with local and international students on a foreign campus. The courses transfer from the host institution to count for pre-approved courses at BYU. 

Participating in an SEP program fulfills the international requirement to earn the Global Management Certificate. The Certificate builds your resume as it certifies your international business competency. To learn more about the Global Management Certificate, click here.
