Student exchange program

If you are looking for a student exchange program compliant with the National Guidelines for the Operation of International Secondary Student Exchange Programs in Australia (NCCISSE), this is the one for you.

😊 We are a  family-run, non-profit organisation, led by a Franco-Australian team. For over 20 years, we have been passionately creating life-changing experiences between France and Australia for our participants. 🌍🌟

What do we do best? We focus on the quality of the match between you and your French correspondent, as well as your host family. We believe that a genuine “click” with your correspondent and feeling at home with your host family are crucial. These connections provide the foundation for a successful experience in France. 🇫🇷❤️🇦🇺

🌏 We’ve lived the experiences you’re about to embark on, as parents and/or students, giving us an insider’s edge in understanding and navigating both school systems. 🌟 This isn’t just knowledge; it’s lived experience, paving the way for your comprehensive cultural and linguistic immersion.
