Are you finishing school soon? Or just finished your exams? Keen to head overseas? Student Exchange Australia New Zealand and our sister organisation Student Placement Australia New Zealand have some great options that might be of interest to you!
Student Placement Australia New Zealand facilitates the placement of young people aged 18 years and over into work, training and study programs overseas.
We understand that during this busy time in your life there are many choices you have to make, so we are trying to make things as easy as possible for you by outlining our programs below.
|Age||Program Description||Program Features|
If your preference is to attend school and live with a host family as part of a student exchange program you’ll be interested to know that many countries do allow students to go on exchange during a gap year.
If you’re interested give us a call on 1300 135 331 (in Australia) or 0800 440 079 (in New Zealand) and our staff will be able to advise you whether you will be eligible for your preferred destination.
Please note that the USA is one country you can not do a GAP year in. A lot of countries like Germany, France and Italy allow you to go on exchange once you have completed year 12, but you must send us your application while you are still enrolled in High School (and before your 18th birthday) and depart in January.
Use your sporting skills to access generous sports scholarships to study at a university in the USA. Save thousands of dollars, developing your sports skills, and attend a university (often for less than the cost of attending university in your home country).
Open to recreational or amateur sports men or women at a competitive level ability.
The Academic Scholarship program is similar to the Athletic Scholarship program, with the main difference being that it focuses solely on your academic abilities.
The Academic Scholarship program gives you access to a wide range of generous academic scholarships from across the US. So if you’ve always wanted to live and study in the USA and experience America’s world famous on-campus college lifestyle this program is for you!
The Live & Learn program is perfect for people looking to take a gap year. You get to spend up to 3 months in France or Germany; living with a host family and helping them learn English.
The Live & Learn program allows you to acclimatise to a foreign environment whilst remaining in a secure and comfortable family environment.
This is a great option to take as a stepping stone to further travels in Europe or elsewhere in the world!
Do you like kids? Would you like to spend 12 months in the US, France, Germany or Spain?
These Au Pair programs give you the opportunity to live with a host family and look after the family’s children. In exchange you get treated as one of the family with your own furnished bedroom plus you get pocket money and the opportunity to attend an evening college.
