The Exchange Life

Every year, EF exchange students from around the world live one-year abroad in a completely new home, culture, and school.

Become an
Exchange Student


An exchange year is your chance to experience the world on a deeper level than an ordinary trip abroad. As you live with a family and attend high school, you’ll become fluent in English, feel more independent, form lifelong friendships, and gain a new understanding of our world.
