Being an exchange student is a challenging, rewarding and fun experience. You’re not a tourist or a guest. You’re actually living in your host country as a member of that community.
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 invaluable international experience. You’ll learn a lot about yourself.
Student exchange programs promote tolerance, maturity and independence. They also encourage an international perspective. In a very competitive world these are highly sought after qualities. Experience is everything™.
Being an exchange student is an investment for life and complements your formal education in important and exciting ways. The experience of living or studying overseas can bring enormous rewards:
Long after you return home your exchange experience will influence and inform your life. It will provide you with a substantial backdrop from which to make future study and career choices. Employers are increasingly alert to the benefits of student exchange. Your experience will set you apart from the crowd and mark you as someone who has proven themselves in challenging circumstances.
Please don't think living and studying overseas is easy.
Student Exchange Australia New Zealand Ltd has many years experience of delivering high quality programs. All our staff have either been exchange students, have lived, worked or studied overseas. They understand the challenges involved and are committed to providing you with a high level of service and support throughout.
The best way to learn more about our programs is to come along to one of our free information sessions. They are held regularly in major cities and allow you to meet our staff and hear from returned participants. I run many of the sessions myself and I hope to meet you there.
If I can ever be of any assistance please feel free to call on 1300 135 331 (in Australia) or 0800 440 079 (in New Zealand).
