How it Works ?
The Ishik University has a wide and diverse range of international collaborations with current university partners in Asia, America and Europe. And we are still expanding!
What is my status while on exchange?
Ishik students are NOT transfer students. They are still students at their home institutions while enrolled at the host school, and are subject to the rules and regulations of both institutions.
Budget for the cost:
Students only need to pay the normal Ishik tuition fees during their Exchange period overseas. They are not required to pay any tuition fees at the partner university.
However, you are responsible for the other costs involved with going on Exchange program, including but not limited to:
|· Visa fees· Accommodation· Insurance (in some countries it is required to purchase the insurance of the host country)· Miscellaneous expenses such as travel, clothes, entertainment|
Students must be responsible to ensure that they have the financial means to support their living cost during their Exchange program overseas and some countries require proof of adequate finances upon entry. The cost of living varies from country to country and among different cities in the same country
Who can benefit from International Relations Office?
