There is a variety of organisations that provide student exchanges to a multitude of destinations world wide. These are generally for a full year or a semester with varying departure dates. This is a brilliant opportunity to learn a new culture and perhaps a new language.
Host families are provided and students attend a high school for the duration of the visit. Many organisations also offer the chance to travel with other exchange students in a supervised environment. You are generally required to be under the age of 18 to be eligible.
Student Exchange Programmes
Imagine living overseas for anything from two to twelve months. You'll be placed with a host family and attend a local school. You'll live like a local and become immersed in the culture. You'll learn the language and gain valuable international experience. You'll learn a lot about yourself.
