Student stories

What is it actually like to spend a high school year abroad? No one knows or can explain it better than the people who have gone on this adventure themselves. That’s why we let several of our students take over our social media channels, like Instagram and TikTok, to talk about what their year abroad was like. They share their thoughts before their trip, suggest what to pack, discuss their experience during their year abroad, and much more. And also follow the hashtag #stseducation.

Do you want to share about your journey?

Would you like to share your experiences in our channels too? Send an email to whether you want to take part via Instagram or TikTok, maybe you’ll get to show up in our channels next time.

"My exchange has given me life long friends, another language, a second family, and enough crazy memories to last a lifetime”

"This experience has been more than I ever could have dreamed! I found a new home and made new relationships for life. This is the best thing I've done in my lifetime and these days on exchange I will cherish for the rest of my life."

Matua Wilson, High School in Italy
