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.

To pack for a whole year might feel like a tough task. But it is actually not as hard as it sounds. There are though some things you should think about before you start.

Say goodbye

You will be happy to go home and see your friends and family again, but at the same time you will feel so sad leaving your new friends.

On your way

It’s usually at the airport when it it hits you. “I’m going to be away for a whole year!” It might be scary at first.
