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.

Pack for a year

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.

Meet friends

Don’t be scared of calling people if they want to hang out. It is just a way to make them feel interested as well and almost every time they will help you get into the friendship-gangs.

Longing back

But after a month you will be back to normal, with usual TV-nights or maybe a night with the computer. It is often then, when you are not doing anything, that you long back to your year as an exchange student.
