About Exchange Student World

The day has come...scary?!

When the day arrives and it’s time to take off, you will probably feel intense, excited and nervous. You will ask yourself if you’ve got your passport, visa and credit card at least 100 times. 

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, but you will meet up with other exchange students that are in exactly the same situation and feeling exactly the same way. Everyone may not be comfortable talking about their feelings, but you won’t be alone.

Longing back
