International Programs and Student Exchange

Foreign Exchange Program

In the past several years, ESU has established partnerships with a number of institutions around the world, including, but not limited to:

Shenyang Normal University, China

Shanghai Normal University, China

Henan University, China

Nanyang Institute of Technology, China

Beijing Sport University, China

Shanghai University of Sport, China

Universidad de Jaen, Spain

University of Wuppertal, Germany

Aalen University of Applied Sciences, Germany

Fontys University of Applied Sciences, Netherlands

Universidad de Iberoamerica (UNIBE), Costa Rica

ESU is working with these institutions in various capacities, but our focus is on bringing international students to campus to diversify our student body and to create more opportunities for ESU students to study abroad, whether it is for a short-term summer program or for a semester abroad program.

Study Abroad

Study abroad opportunities are available to students who wish to study in a foreign university and experience life in another culture. Students may choose to participate in one of ESU’s many international programs or a program sponsored by universities in the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education. Information on academic programs, internship and volunteering opportunities abroad is available in the Office of International Programs.

Students will receive advising about choosing a suitable program, securing academic progress while abroad and having a smooth re-entry into ESU upon return.
