Australia

Our neighbour across the Tasman is not only the biggest rival for our sporting teams, it’s also a land of sunshine, never-ending beaches, tropical rainforests, the outback, cuddly koalas, kangaroo’s and of course the spectacular Sydney Harbour Bridge. With a history of more than one million years in the making and with natural beauties like Uluru, Kakadu National Park and the Great Barrier Reef, Australia is country that may be close to home but is vastly unique.

Applications for January 2022 are being accepted

We are excited that international travel has recommenced with the launch of the Australia and New Zealand travel bubble. We are accepting applications to Australia for programs departing in January 2022. Note that programs commencing in January 2022 have been approved by South Australia. Programs have not been approved by NSW regulatory bodies. They are pending regulatory approval in other states and territories. Please contact us for more information.

During first three months of my exchange year I’ve learned so much about Australia, people living in here and their culture. I’ve experienced four territories, met numerous amazing people and found new hobbies. I’ve also learned a lot about myself and started to appreciate Finland in a completely new way.
