Global Partnerships

Our international network includes partner universities of France Agro 3 and Lille Catholic University. If you are a student from one of our partner universities, ISA offers you various opportunities to come as an exchange student for a semester or a full academic year.


ISA Lille offers courses taught in English and French. All programs are open to exchange students who meet the language requirements and academic prerequisites. Exchange Students must take a minimum of 20 credits (ECTS) per semester. 

ISA Lille uses the European Credit Transfer System to facilitate the transfer of credits and ensure the validity of learning outcomes according to the European system. In the ECTS, a full semester consists of 30 credits and a full year of study is 60 credits. ISA Lille's credit and grading system is fully compatible with the ECTS.
All of our programs are open to all students, without discrimination based on age, origin, disability, sexual orientation, or gender. Any Erasmus+ participants who have a severe disability or exceptional special needs may be entitled to extra funding to cover associated costs on their Erasmus+ mobility. Please contact the ISA International Relations Office for details.
