International Study and Language Travel
The adventure of your life

While abroad

This is your chance to experience something new and exciting. A year as an exchange student will give you knowledge, impressions, inspiration and memories. It will simply be the year of your life!

Suddenly you speak the language fluently

The big advantage of learning a language in a country where it’s spoken is that you hear it everywhere. You get exposed to it around the dinner table with your host family, at the gym, in a café or at the shopping mall. Your pronunciation improves radically. New words and expressions are suddenly yours. It is an almost automatic process. And it is so much fun!

Your new school

Imagine walking down the hallway of your new school. You take out some books from the locker and enter the classroom where your new friends are waiting. Coming to a new school is exciting and inspiring. This is where lots of the magic will happen.

Stay with a host family

A kind and motivated host family will be ready to open up their home and share their traditions with you. They will do everything to make you feel welcome. Most students come to call it their second home.

Friends and free time fun

All the people you meet will be an important part of your time abroad. Your new friends will be eager to show you the best cafés, where to do sports and how to best enjoy time outside of school.
