An international student exchange program is a program in which students from a secondary school or university study abroad at one of their institution’s partner institutions.
This program involves international travel and provides students with an opportunity to study in a different country and environment experiencing the history and culture of another country.
The term “exchange” means that a partner institution accepts a student, but does not necessarily mean that the students have to find a counterpart from the other institution with whom to exchange. Exchange students live in a designated place such as a hostel, an apartment, or a student lodging. Costs for the program vary by the country and institution. Participants fund their participation via scholarships, loans, or self-funding.
Student exchanges are intended to increase the participants’ understanding and tolerance of other cultures, as well as improving their language skills and broadening their social horizons. Students on study abroad programs may stay in the host country for several years.
