A year as an exchange student is a huge possibility. With a bit of curiousity and an open mind you will experience a tremendous amount of new things.
You usually have to be between 15 and 18 when you depart New Zealand to start your exchange year. You can apply at 14 years but can not depart until you are 15. The school system in the different countries has an impact on the age a student must be when starting and finishing their exchange . Look for more information at the page for the country you are interested in.
For countries other than English speaking countries the requirements differ. You will find all information you need at the pages describing the destination you are interested in.
To be accepted you have to be academically achieving at an average to above level and have documented full time studies the year before your departure.
To be able to participate in an exchange year you should be in good health. But each application is assessed individually so do not hesitate to contact us if you are unsure whether you can apply.
