Going on exchange overseas provides you with a wonderful opportunity to travel and study with the support of a worldwide network of YFU Student Exchange organisations, a volunteer host family, a school and its community and local YFU representatives to support you.

YFU Student Exchange programs around the world operate under a set of quality program standards for the operation of exchange programs. The quality of our program performance is monitored each year. You can be assured that YFU Student Exchange New Zealand and all our organisations around the world operate to the highest professional standards for the safety, security and well being of students and families.

Every year YFU Student Exchange New Zealand operates programs from 2 months to 12 months duration for students from over 50 countries around the world to be able to experience another culture, immerse themselves in another culture and  language and gain insights into peoples’ lives and to help students learn about other cultures.

Going on exchange can allow you to see different possibilities for further study or for future employment as well as giving you a unique experience that you cannot have at any other time in your life with memories and friends that last a lifetime.

Why not join over 250,000 YFU exchange students worldwide and become a member of a family overseas, attend a school with different approaches to learning and perhaps learn a new language. You will have the time of your life.
