Temple Exchanges



The Trans-Atlantic Science Student Exchange Program (TASSEP) is designed for Temple University students who are majoring in the sciences. TASSEP is a consortium of member universities from the European Union, Canada and the United States. Temple students study one semester or a full academic year abroad and can chose from 19 different European universities, representing ten countries (see list below).

Through strong academic advising by science faculty, who work in close cooperation with their study abroad offices, TASSEP ensures that students are properly advised about course selection and eases the problems of receiving credit for science courses taken abroad. The goal is to permit students to take most of their normal junior level courses abroad and still be able to graduate on time.

As an exchange program, TASSEP provides the most affordable means for students to study abroad. Students pay their typical Temple University tuition and can enroll in the foreign university with no additional fees. Transatlantic transportation and all living costs are the responsibility of the students.

The following TASSEP universities offer courses in English: Aarhus University (Denmark), Trinity College (Ireland), University of Strathclyde (Scotland) and Lund University (Sweden).  All other TASSEP universities offer courses in the language of the host country only.  Students must have completed at least four semesters of university-level courses (or equivalent) in the local language prior to departure .  Sufficient proficiency to enroll in courses taught in the host university language will be  demonstrated by successfully completeing a required language evaluation at the time of application.
