ISA Custom Programs Expands in Ireland and South Africa

Through their strategic partnership with Interstudy, ISA’s Custom Programs division is now developing faculty-led and partnership programs with premier universities in five sites in South Africa and two additional sites in Ireland. ISA’s CP division has added program options in Cape Town, Durban, Johannesburg, Pietermaritzburg, and Stellenbosch in South Africa, and Dublin in Ireland.

“We are very excited about adding new cities in South Africa and Ireland to our already extensive network of program locations,” Lauren Alexander, Associate Vice President of Custom Programs, said. “I am confident that these additional program locations will serve as a platform to further diversify the academic fields in which we offer specialized programs.”

Having celebrated 15 years of developing specialized programs, ISA’s CP division is now collaborating with U.S. university partners to develop and administer over 100 programs for spring and summer 2013. In response to an increased interest in programs, ISA’s CP division has added two new staff members to their full-time team of six CP Managers. “The additional staff ensures that ISA’s CP Managers will continue providing the one-on-one advice and individual attention required to collaborate successfully with our U.S. university partners,” Alexander said.

In addition to new program locations and staff, ISA’s CP division is now offering U.S. university partners the opportunity to promote their own specialized programs nationally on the ISA and the ISA CP websites, respectively. These nationally-promoted programs can be viewed alongside ISA’s standard program offerings by city under the Custom Programs tab and can also be found with the Program Search tool by subject, site, or term.

ISA’s Custom Program division has administered faculty-led and partnership programs in many academic fields and have provided over 4,000 college students in the United States and Canada the opportunity to explore the world. For more information about ISA Custom Programs please visit
