With our extensive experience in student high school exchanges we know what is required to ensure a positive and memorable exchange for our students. To us you will never be a be just a number – we will be with you every step of the way.

 

WHAT WE DO

We’re creating a new generation of global citizens through high school exchanges.  We create unique opportunities and experiences for students going on one of our high school exchanges. Delivering new skills to students and knowledge of other cultures is how we deliver cultural understanding.  You can trust that with each opportunity we create, we will be on hand to support and prepare you for your new adventure. We deliver distinctive experiences allowing students to live life as a ‘local’ in a safe and supportive environment.

 

HOW WE DO IT

 

At Your Education we understand high school exchanges and thrive on delivering authentic opportunities for our students. Our hands-on approach and attention to detail allows us to identify and match the student's desire to living like a local in a foreign country. With our team of Local Area Representatives throughout New Zealand we work in the local communities to provide warm care and support to each of our students going on one of our high school exchanges. We are proudly delivering quality opportunities and helping to create greater understanding between cultures and peaceful cooperation between nations.
