The 2WayExchange Experience involves you in a unique exchange program where Australian students are ‘matched’, with a student in either France, Canada, Italy or Spain. You choose which country and spend 3 months with each other’s families and attend school. It amounts to twice the experience and at a fraction of the usual cost of a 3 month exchange program.

USA High School Choice Programs - NEW
Students who are looking to go on exchange to the USA have the option to apply for a semester or academic year program and choose from a range of schools or school districts in the USA.
Students can also fully participate in athletics, clubs and other extra curricular activities whilst on exchange.
Our USA High School Choice program allows students to enter the USA on an F1 visa. In addition to choosing where they would like to study while on exchange, the F1 visa allows the applicant to attend school on a full academic program. This provides the opportunity to gain study credits and diplomas needed to attend a University in the USA.
With the F1 program you can customize your study abroad by choosing:
- Your destination
- A lifestyle you love – a school in a big city, near the beach, close to the mountains, warm weather all year round, in the heart of America and more!
- How long to study – international students can study at a US public school for a year, semester or even a short term program of 10-12 weeks!
- A school based on a sport you love or want to try
- A school based on a unique art program – like multimedia, acting, dance, journalism, architecture, music and more
- A school that allows you to earn a US high school diploma in one year
