Study Abroad Programs
East Carolina University currently has bilateral study abroad programs available at 20 universities overseas on five continents. These programs are offered on one-for-one tuition swaps, making the programs affordable to every ECU student. In addition to the student exchange, we also offer three consortium study abroad programs to France and Spain. To learn more about our partner universities abroad, select the program map

In addition to ECU’s bilateral programs, ECU students can also study abroad on an International Student Exchange Program
(ISEP) or University of North Carolina Exchange Program
ISEP is a network of over 300 higher education institutions in 50 countries cooperating to provide affordable access to international education for a diverse student population.
ISEP offers students two options:
- ISEP-Exchanges: reciprocal exchange among ISEP Member institutions. Exchanges are between US and International Members, or between Member institutions outside the U.S (International-to-International).
- ISEP-Direct: study abroad programs at ISEP Member institutions open to students from ISEP Member and Affiliate institution.
UNCEP is a UNC system exchange program with a network of approximately 50 universities worldwide. Exchange placements are available to any student in the UNC system on a one-for-one tuition swap.
