Student Exchange Program Share

You have probably felt the urge to do something different. To chart your own path. Life isn’t only about what you see and do in your own country, hometown or school, or even with your friends. What is beyond? You need to challenge yourself, to take a chance. For a school year you can dare to be different!

What makes an exchange student different?

When someone leaves the familiar behind and plunges into the unknown, he or she is showing a commitment to understanding other people, to learning about the world in a way that textbooks and school assignments never reveal. A year spent abroad is a year that will redefine your world.
You’ll discover that every moment, every conversation and experience, challenges the way you look at the world. You’ll see differences as well as similarities in people and their actions, in their beliefs and values. Suddenly you’ll realize what it means to belong to a certain country and culture. You’ll learn about yourself as you learn about others.

Becoming an exchange student gives you more than knowledge about another country and its language and culture. A year abroad teaches you about building friendships, taking responsibility for yourself, respecting differences and tolerating the beliefs of others.

Exchange students develop leadership skills, self-confidence and a greater understanding of the complexities of the world around them. This is why the best universities, as well as corporations and professionals, look favourably on students who have spent a school year abroad. They know that former international exchange students bring a higher level of maturity and a global frame of reference to their university studies and activities.

You’ll also find that the school system is among the best in the world, and that the teenagers are much the same as they are at home. They work hard at their studies, play sports, love parties and cinema, and pursue hobbies just like you. A few will become your friends for life.

You’re not just part of a program, you’re part of a family

The best way to truly become involved in the culture of a foreign country is to live among its people as a member of a family. Every exchange student does just that. Host families are carefully screened and consider it a privilege to welcome students like you into their home. Host families feel they benefit from the experience as much as you do! They want to learn about your culture and introduce you to theirs.

And every exchange student has a local Sponsor representative who will plan some social activities and be available to help you during your stay.
