Empowering young people since 1958!

About STS

In 1958, STS organised what was perhaps the world's first language trip for teenagers. Since then we have exported the language trip concept and exchange programmes to many countries. STS now operates worldwide and we have offices in 15 countries and a large global network of partners, schools, host families and local staff all over the world

OUR MISSION: Empowering young people to grow through education and cultural exchange

We are totally convinced that a person who receives the right opportunities can grow and reach their full potential. We also know that learning a language abroad gives young people an edge in an increasingly competitive world. With our portfolio and service, their journey towards that potential will be easier, safer and more enjoyable.

Today, STS is one of the world's leading organisations for language training and international youth exchange. Long experience and sensitivity to each customer's needs are the main reasons for our many years of success.

WE OFFER: Experience-based learning

Experienced-based learning is how we define what we offer. Our service contributes to people’s personal development and education, and help them reach their full potential, whilst having the time of their lives.

We are convinced that experience-based learning abroad is truly the best way to learn new skills, a new language, boost self-confidence and grow as a person. Start Your Journey, and see for yourself!

Our organisation is divided into two main areas; STS Language Schools and STS High School. The head quarters is located in Gothenburg, Sweden.

STS Values

  • Expertise
    We are experts in our field and share our knowledge generously. We have experienced other cultures and life abroad ourselves and we know how inspiring it is, but also what it takes.
  • Passion
    We see our work as much more than just a job. We go the extra mile to deliver world class education and experiences for all our customers. Passionate people want to make a difference, and that is who we are.
  • Respect
    Respect and care are qualities that you find in our DNA. We always show consideration to our customers’ dreams. Without respect, rewarding cultural exchange would not have been possible.
