“My exchange has given me so much
more confidence and a hunger for travel. I
made amazing friends and had incredible
experiences and would definitely recommend
an exchange to anyone.”
Georgia Bryers, NZ, Canada
“I wasn’t as homesick as I thought I would be
because I was having WAY too much fun. My
Spanish has improved more than I expected
and I love speaking and understanding
another language. I’m definitely coming back
to Spain one day. Thanks for everything!”
Rhiannon Rennie, VIC, Spain
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, practise and
learn. You’ll gain a level of fluency that only
comes with prolonged immersion.
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
your awareness of the world around you will
Students frequently tell us that their
exchange experience opened study and
career doors they didn’t know existed. Your
experience provides you with an opportunity
to reflect on your options and priorities.
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.
Make Lasting Friendships
The friends you make on exchange
frequently remain for life. You will share
experiences that easily transcend borders,
cultures and generations.
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 familiar subjects.
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.
