MATCHING AND CONFIRMATION
Matching or pairing of students is carried
out by experienced staff taking into account:
• sporting and cultural interests
• age and gender
• academic interests
The aim is to obtain as close a match as
possible from within the available student
Please note there is no guarantee of
acceptance because we are dependent on
finding a suitable ‘pairing’ from amongst
overseas student applicants. If we are
unable to match you with a suitable student
you are refunded in full, or you can change
your 2WayExchange destination or switch
to a standard short program.

“Going on an exchange takes extraordinary
bravery, it’s a step into a whole new world
and a whole new self. Going on my 2way
exchange to Canada not only introduced me
to my lifelong best friend, but allowed me to
flourish and grow in maturity and strength.
My exchange opened new opportunities
and created lifelong friendships and family. I
was able to experience snow, Canadian high
school life, road trips, new cities, different
social environments, adventures and a whole
new life. I lived an extraordinary life for a short
amount of time and it allowed me to desire
more for myself in the future and discover
more about myself. During my exchange I
was able to grow as the person I am and I can
undoubtedly say that this exchange was the
best thing to ever happen to me and my new
Canadian sister. We’ve made plans to travel
the world next year and I couldn’t be more
thankful for the opportunity Student Exchange
Australia New Zealand opened up to us. I
would highly recommend taking a huge step
out of your comfort zone and taking on the
