Click on the "Register Now" button and fill out the form as the first step. We will then make an appointment for a personal interview.

 

2. PERSONAL INTERVIEW

We would like to get to know you and your parents one-on-one! If our interview goes well, we will send you a personal offer for your program through a contract.

 

3. CONSULTATION WITH YOUR SCHOOL

Please discuss your plans for a high school exchange with your school.

 

4. APPLICATION

Now it’s time to compile all your application documents. Once your application is complete, it will be sent to our partner organizations as well as the school and host family abroad.

 

5. VISA PROCESS

For programs in countries outside of Europe you will need a valid passport and visa. We will send you the forms necessary and accompany you through the visa process. For our participants who are not German citizens, other visa regulations may apply.

 

6. PLACEMENT

Once we receive the information about your host family and school, we will personally get in touch with you. You will receive your placement information before you leave.

 

7. PRE-DEPATURE WORKSHOP

We hold an all-day Pre-Departure Workshop for all our students before their departure date.

 

8. ORIENTATION

For all our programs you can spend the first few days with other exchange students. The flights are always in economy and the group size can vary between 10-100 participants, depending on the destination.

 

9. YOUR TIME ABROAD

Now you can finally have your experiences abroad! We are more than happy to hear from you during or after your time abroad through photos, videos and updates. But most of all: enjoy your time!
