Live Like a Local. You can be a tourist at
any stage of your life but students on our long
programs frequently say they become part
of the social fabric of their host community.
They start to think and feel like a local. They
build networks of friends that frequently last
a lifetime. Their knowledge of the country
increases and their capacity to put matters in
perspective matures and grows.
High Level Language Skills.
If learning another language is one of your
motivations then our long programs provide
an opportunity to really hone your skills. On a
long program you can relax in the knowledge
that you have plenty of time to adjust,
make mistakes, practice and learn. You’ll
gain a level of fluency that only comes with
Independence and Confidence.
Although difficult at first, you’ll be amazed
at how your self confidence improves as
you adjust to your new life overseas. Your
sense of independence will increase and

Open Doors. Students frequently tell

study and career doors they didn’t know

Make Lasting Friendships.
The friends you make on exchange
frequently remain for life. You will share
experiences that easily transcend borders,
cultures and generations.
Attend School. School is the social
hub of the program. It’s where you will make
friends, get involved in sporting and social
activities and where you’ll get to try new
subjects or extend your understanding of
BEING AWAY FROM HOME
Being away from home for up to 12 months
can be a challenging experience and it is
not for everyone. You’re not on holiday and
you are definitely not a guest. Homesickness
can occasionally be acute. You sometimes
think that you’ll never get the language.
But you’ll find that as you negotiate these
and other little hurdles along the way you’ll
acquire a whole new level of confidence and
independence. The benefits are not handed
to you on a plate.
