Program Description:
ISEP Direct South Africa
  • Immerse yourself in the breathtaking scenery of South Africa. Keep an eye out for the Big Five (elephants, lions, rhinos, leopards, and buffalo) that can be seen in local national parks and game lodges. Other iconic African wildlife like hippos, giraffes, cheetahs, and whales can also be spotted during your time abroad! 
  • The vibrant University of Johannesburg offers an extensive range of classes for students, making it a great choice for students with broad interests or for those with specific class needs.   
  • When you arrive, you will be whisked away from the airport to your new home by your on-campus contacts. To kick off your adventure, participate in a weeklong orientation that includes a city tour, workshops, and several excursions to local attractions like the Lion & Safari Park. 
  • Discover the fascinating cultures and traditions of the people of Africa by visiting the nearby Lesedi Cultural Village, a world heritage site within the Cradle of Humankind. While there, check out the Rhino & Lion Nature Reserve, which runs a breeding program for endangered species including Bengal Tigers, Siberian Tigers, and the extremely rare White lion. 

Johannesburg (or Jo’burg or Jozi as it is lovingly referred to) is the ideal place to study abroad for a big-city experience paired with opportunities for outdoor adventures. In the city, have access to shopping, dining, nightlife, and world-class museums, including those that offer deep insight into South Africa's past (such as the Apartheid Museum). Outside of the city, explore a traditional village for a glimpse into local customs, or venture to a nature reserve for extraordinary natural landscapes and wildlife.  

What We Love About South Africa 
We love that one of the most diverse elements of South Africa are its people and their cultures. As a country with 11 official languages, namely Afrikaans, English, isiNdebele, isiXhosa, isiZulu, Sepedi, Sesotho, Setswana, siSwati, Tshivenda, and Xitsonga, you will discover how vibrant, colorful, and interesting life in South African can be.
