The International Student Association of Semmelweis (ISAS) was established in the spring of 2006 with the general aim of helping students of the English Language Programme feel more at home during their studies at Semmelweis University.
ISAS has several goals, most importantly to improve the means of communication among students of the English-Language Programme, as well as between international students and the University.
The group’s website and self-published magazine (The ISAS Review) are popular tools for international students to be heard, discuss issues, share advice and evaluate courses.
ISAS holds regular meetings with representatives of the University to maintain communication and thus improve both the academic and social life of the students at Semmelweis University.
