An exchange is when a high school or university student goes abroad to study - either over a semester, a year, or over the summer. A summer exchange is considered a short-term exchange.

Student Exchange Programs

The summer is a great time to travel, and doing an exchange is a great way to do it while also getting academic credit! An exchange is when a high school or university student goes abroad to study - either over a semester, a year, or over the summer. A summer exchange is considered a short-term exchange. These exchanges are sometimes a partnership between your school and a school abroad. The experience of living abroad can help you to build language skills, colour a resume and expand your horizons. Living and studying in another country can strengthen your independence and expand your understanding of other cultures. Living arrangements vary from host families, hostels and student housing. Make sure to look into scholarships available to help fund your exchange. Also, ensure in advance of doing the exchange that your school accepts the program or trip for academic merit, as this may factor heavily into your decision to go on an exchange. Sometimes, the process of exchange involves hosting a foreign student in your home in Canada either during the time you are abroad or at a different time.

Tip: If you want to go abroad but not on exchange, do some research into cruise-ship or summer airline jobs!
