The 10 best months of your life!

With its beautiful landscape, outdoor activity possibilities such as skiing in winter and hiking in summer, its rich cultural and historical heritage and most of all its warmhearted people, Austria offers an unique exchange experience! We invite students to experience all 4 seasons in Austria, master a high level of German and improve their intercultural learning skills. Participants will be placed in host families and will go to school on a daily basis, which will enable them to discover the traditions and customs of our country.

Language Level needed upon arrival: Basic German
