Foreign exchange programmes

Enrolling in a foreign exchange programme is an eye-opening experience. Many students do not go abroad until later, so you'll be getting an educational head start. Our student exchange programmes are varied in length and objective. If you would like to become fluent as quickly as possible, consider taking a more intensive option for your student exchange programme. On the other hand, if your looking to embrace the nightlife and view historic monuments, consider a more cultural exchange when looking into a foreign exchange programme
