What Are Exchange Programs?
Rhodes has two types of Exchange Program partnerships: Bilateral and Multilateral. In either type, Rhodes institutional aid is portable, as is any eligible federal/state financial aid. Students interested in an Exchange Program MUST speak with Erin Hillis in the Buckman Center a minimum of a complete semester in advance of the relevant deadline to apply for exchanges.

ISEP Exchange (Multilateral)
Rhodes is a member of the International Student Exchange Program. On an ISEP Exchange, a student pays Rhodes room, board, and tuition, just as in any given semester or academic year spent at Rhodes. Deadlines are quite early, so plan ahead! Credit is treated as transfer credit. 

Rhodes Bilateral Exchanges
Rhodes has bilateral exchange agreements with these institutions:
  • The University of Antwerp in Belgium
  • The University of Kent in England
  • Poitiers University in France
  • The University of Koblenz-Landau in Germany
  • Tubingen University in Germany
  • The University of Iberoamericana in Mexico
  • The University of Lima in Peru
  • The University of Aberdeen in Scotland
  • Rhodes University in South Africa
  • Nebrija University in Spain.
On a bilateral exchange, a student pays Rhodes tuition and fees, just as in any given semester or academic year spent at Rhodes, using any institutional and federal aid for which the student may be eligible. In most cases, room and board are paid to the host institution. Credit is treated as transfer credit. 

Advance Planning
Exchange application deadlines are very early. Failure to meet with Erin Hillis on time (see above) may result in fewer, or no, exchange options. Erin manages the nomination process for exchange applicants, which is a step that takes place in advance of the application process.
