Your Host Family

Become part of an Australian family and immerse yourself in the Australian way of life! You will quickly notice that their friendly and relaxed manner, the warmth and the pronounced sense of independence are contagious.

Australians love their own country, but are still very open to everything new - a trait that makes it easy for every exchange student to get used to it quickly. And because the weather is nice almost every day in the country, activities and leisure activities are usually outdoors. It will probably not be long before you won't want to miss the typical BBQs with friends, neighbors and relatives. Experience it yourself: Australia is a good mood country and the almost eternal sunshine makes every heart full!

Your School in Australia

Australia has a comprehensive school system that goes up to the 12th grade in which all students learn together. The school year, unlike ours, is divided into four terms and starts in January - a summer month in Australia. Australian schools are particularly attractive due to their diverse range of subjects, from which you can choose according to your preferences. Many schools teach, for example, agricultural sciences or marine studies (an exciting combination of snorkeling, boating and studies on life in the coral reef and water quality).

Do you love creative challenges? Then subjects like woodworking, cooking, dance and theater will surely inspire you.

Many schools also have their own pool for all types of water sports or are by the sea and therefore offer you the opportunity to take sailing or surfing lessons.

Sample Schools

We would be happy to find out which school is right for you during a personal consultation.
