USA

A student exchange program to The USA introduces you to the amazing land of liberty and opportunity.

Reach for the stars and stripes.

Regardless if you head to the rolling hills of Montana, the windy city of Chicago, the glitz and glamour of Los Angeles or the sunny coastline of Florida, there is so much diversity within the vast land that makes up the USA that it’s no wonder it’s become such a popular destination for a student exchange program.

America is a goal-oriented, ‘can-do’ society that strives to give opportunity to all its citizens to reach their full potential of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’  There is an overall cultural norm of hardworking and very open-minded people, with a wonderfully unique brand of hospitality.  Exchange students are welcomed with expressive open arms and will love the unbelievable school pride they will experience in their new classroom. 

The USA offers two main program types:  Classic and Select.  With our Classic Programs, students will live with a local host family and go to a local school, while Select gives the additional option to choose the exact school region they go to.  The Select Program opens an exchange student up to many options, and comes at an extra cost, therefore it is best to speak to our North American specialist to understand what is available.  If you do not necessarily want to choose your exact school district, but you do have a rough idea of where you would like to live, you can also purchase a classic exchange and pay a little extra for a “regional request”.  You can find more information about that below.

What is a student exchange Select Program?

The USA Select program gives students the opportunity to consider a range of school or school districts in a particular region for the length of their exchange.  This is a great option for students who have a particular academic or sporting goal for their USA experience.  If experiencing the culture of living in the USA is your reason for student exchange, then the Classic Program is for you.

Students on our USA Select Program enter the country on F-1 visas, meaning they can be eligible to attend school on a full academic program, and potentially receive the appropriate diplomas required to attend University in America.
