Student exchange programs

Going on a student exchange in the USA is a memorable experience, whether you stay for two months or two years. For some, the primary goal is to learn English. If that's your case, choose an English immersion program in the USA. For others, the goal is to earn a degree. There are several options. Whatever your goal, everyone who enrolls on our programs is preparing for their future by learning new skills and getting international exposure at the same time. There is no more worthwhile investment you can make.

American experiences

A gap year in the USA, or a gap semester, is an excellent way to get to know American culture and to explore this vast country. There are so many interesting things to see and do, so many holidays to celebrate, and so many friends to make. Living with a host family is one of the best ways to get an authentic sense of American family life, but even if you stay in an apartment or student residence, you can't help but absorb some of the culture. While you're in the USA, be sure to set aside time to travel. The country is very diverse and you can't really claim to know it without going places.
