Have you ever wanted to travel the world, see the Eiffel Tower, Big Ben or Machu Pichu? Well hundreds if not thousands of students are doing this every year from schools and universities across Australia.
Exchange programs provide an amazing opportunity for students to travel abroad and experience a new culture and open up doors for their future passions and careers. For many, its their first time away from home, and might even be their first time out of the country making it an often challenging task, but always rewarding in my opinion.
Whilst there is often the question of finances, and the value of the exchange program, the knowledge and the experience derived from these programs significantly outweighs the cost and the time spent away from home. In so many cases, it has helped students come out of their shell by forcing them to meet new people, live independently and realise what the world has to offer them.
By allowing you to study in a foreign environment, students are not only able to continue with their courses and tuition, but make new lifelong friends, learn new languages and come to appreciate the scope of application behind what they are learning, and in many cases even apply their study. Making it such a valuable and priceless opportunity.
