International Exchanges

Getting Started

Studying in another country for a semester or a year is a life-changing experience personally, academically, and professionally. LSU offers programs at over 180 universities in 50 countries!

  • Bilateral Exchanges: you pay tuition/fees at LSU while living and studying at one of our partner universities
  • Direct Enroll Programs: you pay tuition/fees "directly" to the host institution (you can still get your LSU financial aid!)

If our partner universities aren't what you're looking for, LSU also belongs to a few consortia of universities around the globe. Because LSU is a member, you are eligible to go to any of their other member institutions. The consortia to which LSU belongs are:

  • International Student Exchange Program (ISEP)
  • Global Engineering Education Exchange (Global E3) (Open only to Engineering majors.)
  • National Student Exchange
