Exchange to the USA

The Land of Liberty and Opportunity

Though the 50 states have a geographic size comparable to that of Australia, the population is approximately 16 times greater. Within the vast land that makes up the U.S.A. there is much diversity in its culture.

Often noted as being the world’s pace-setter, Americans are a goal-oriented, ‘can-do’ society that strives to give opportunity to all its citizens to reach their full potential of ‘life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.’

The U.S.A.’s rich landscapes and riverways have served throughout history as an inspiration for noted writers, poets and film producers.

Americans are hardworking and very open-minded on many things, including their feelings towards the many important issues that face the country. Another side of this openness is their unique brand of hospitality.

Discover our USA Select Programs!

We now offer more choice to students wanting to experience exchange in America by choosing our Classic Exchange or our USA Select Program.  The USA Select program gives students the opportunity to consider a range of school or school districts in a particular region for the length of their exchange.

Students on our USA Select Program enter the country on F-1 visas, meaning they can be eligible to attend school on a full academic program, and potentially receive the appropriate diplomas required to attend University in America.
