Other Academic Conditions

It is preferred that ISEP students have at least junior year standing. Students should only select courses from within their target field of study at their home university during their semester abroad in Hannover. Applicants with multiple fields of study on a course request list will not be accepted.

Some courses, especially graduate-level, may be closed to ISEP students.

Students are responsible for staying until the end of the semester and may not leave before the final date of their semester exams. Neither ISEP nor LUH can guarantee an early departure; leaving early may result in a failing exam grade and/or forfeit of credit.
