What is the main focus of a student exchange program?
The purpose of student exchange is to engage in study and experience a new culture. Secondary student exchange students must enrol as full-time secondary students at a recognised secondary institution in a recognised course of study.
Can I choose a specific school or location in NSW and determine my own course of study?
This may not be possible through a student exchange. If you wish to select a school and a course of study in NSW, the NSW Department of Education provides a range of programs such as Study Abroad and Study Tours.
What countries can I visit as a secondary exchange student?
The most popular overseas destinations for Australian exchange students are USA, Germany, France, Japan, Italy, Canada, Belgium, Spain and Argentina, although choices are not limited to these countries.
