With its gorgeous landscapes, cosmopolitan cities and lively culture, Argentina is a traveller’s paradise. It stretches almost 3500km from Bolivia to the tip of South America, encompasses a wide array of geography and climates, and is almost the size of India. Argentina is safe, friendly and - compared to Europe or the US - very affordable. Argentina is well-known for its natural scenery, modern cities and fashion but also for tradition and hospitality. It is an ideal destination for exchange.

The most rewarding part? Finishing the exchange able to speak another language, having met new people and making friends, and experiencing a whole new and different culture.

School runs from mid-March to early December, with a 2 week winter vacation in July. Students have a fixed subject curriculum until year 9 and, from year 10, have 3 streams of specialisation to choose from. Students wear uniforms and attend school Monday to Friday usually from 7.30am till 2pm. School days always start with a ritual around the national flag where students have to remain silent around the flag or sing the national anthem.
