Going on exchange provides you with a unique opportunity to travel and study overseas with the support of a worldwide network of YFU Student Exchange organisations, a volunteer host family, a school and its community and local support people.

YFU Student Exchange organisations around the world all agree to implement a set of quality exchange program standards for the operation of exchange programs. Each organisation’s performance is monitored on a yearly basis. You can be assured that all YFU Student Exchange organisations operate to the highest professional standards for the safety, security and well being of students and families.

Every year YFU Student Exchange arranges programs from 2 months to 12 months duration for students from over 50 countries around the world to be able to experience another culture, immerse themselves in another language and gain real insights to peoples’ lives and approaches to learning in other cultures.

Exchange can open your eyes to different possibilities for further study or for future employment as well as giving you a unique experience that you cannot have at any other time in your life with memories and new friends that last a lifetime.

So, why not join the other 250,000 YFU exchange students and become a member of a family overseas, attend a school with different approaches to learning and perhaps learn a new language. You will have the time of your life.
