You can choose to study in the USA for one semester or one academic year. You must not be aged older than 18 years upon departure. Students must have also maintained a ‘C’ grade point average or higher in all academic classes to be eligible for this exchange programme. Placements could be anywhere in the USA, including Alaska. The map below shows where some of our students have been placed in the past.
Placements with family friends can be requested – acceptance is based on the approval of our US partner and a signed agreement by the host school. You cannot be related to your host family. Double placements are common; you may be placed with another international student. All of our host families are carefully vetted. We conduct home interviews, inspections, and police checks to ensure our students are placed in a secure and supportive living environment.
