About Exchange Student World

Is there a good exchange student?

There is not one sort of person who is more suitable than another.

Of course it’s easier if you are happy, outgoing, open minded and find it easy to adjust to new situations. But, to be an exchange student is not about who you are right now, it’s about who you will become. You may be shy in your home country, but when you go to another place you will grow as a person and take huge steps in your personal development.
