Ciao, Adiós, Au revoir, Zài jiàn

Queens has long been known for its John Belk International Program, which sends students on two-to-three-week, faculty-led trips overseas in the summer after their junior years.  Now the study abroad program has been certified to become a member of the International Student Exchange Program (ISEP), providing students with more options for semester and year-long exchange trips abroad. 

ISEP offers exchange programs in over 40 different countries, giving students the opportunity to fully immerse themselves in foreign cultures and languages.  Another advantage of the exchange program is that tuition paid to Queens covers tuition in the destination country.   

International Student Advisor Sidra Freeman believes "the exchange program enhances the entire student body" because it works on two distinct levels.  By traveling and studying abroad, Queens students gain new cultural experiences and understanding.  And, the exchange students who come to Queens from other countries bring with them a set of global perspectives that might not otherwise exist at Queens. 

The first group of ISEP students at Queens includes:

  • Daniel Marino - France, ESSCA Business School
  • Ellen McGuire - Ireland, Irish American Scholars Program
