Experience life Down Under!

High school in Australia

Australia is a nation that is industrialized and prosperous with modern urban areas. In other words, a modern country with exciting big cities. But it’s also a big continent with fantastic wildlife, coral reefs, snowy mountains and great open spaces. There are both deserts and rainforests, two complete opposites that very well summarize that Australia has it all!

Go down under

The Australian continent is on the other side of the world from Europe, meaning the seasons are the opposite of what you’re used to. When the European summer ends, the Australian one starts. Even though you will be as far away from home as possible, you will soon find your place in this new climate. The multicultural population has a great reputation of being friendly and relaxed. The Aussies are famously welcoming and easy to get along with, giving you the chance to fit right into their laidback lifestyle. The land down under is waiting for you to come and learn a new way of living.

Full immersion on the fly

If you are looking for the full Australian high school experience, but don't want to be away for too long, we also offer shorter high school trips to South Australia! They last just 4-5 weeks (starting in July), but provide the complete high school exchange experience: you stay with a local host family and attend a real Australian school alongside regular Australian students. It is a full high school exchange programme, just shorter.
