Study at the other end of the world

Experience another country and go on the adventure of a lifetime.

An AFS student exchange is all about excitement. New countries. New cultures. New friends. There are heaps of countries to choose from. If you want to experience something new, take the leap and join the hundreds of young Aussies who head overseas with AFS every year. You won’t be a tourist. You’ll live like a local, and get a genuine taste for local life. You’ll be treated as one of the family and you’ll get great support from us.

An AFS exchange is an unforgettable experience. Don’t settle for less. Grab your future with both hands.
