Student Exchange Program
Your student exchange program accredited by the Department of Education.
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.
How we choose your correspondent & host family
As per the guidelines of the NCCISSE, AFX ensures:
- An in-person interview with all host family members aged 18 years and over residing in the home
- Verifying that every person 18 years and over residing in the home has undergone a Criminal Record Check.
- All parties agree to the double placement prior to the second student being accommodated with that host family.
- Placement with single adult host parents without children SEOs must ensure that a potential single adult host undergoes a secondary-level review
BEFORE YOU GO
Getting to France
Those travelling as part of a group are escorted by an AFX representative or chaperone on the flights. Upon arrival in Paris, students are greeted at the airport by a member of our French team and any host families located close to Paris.
For students hosted by families in regional France, we’ll help with transfers once you reach Paris. One of our representatives will also be present at the airport upon departure.
We can organise chaperones from other departure cities (Perth, Brisbane and Adelaide) but these are subject to group numbers.
If needed, you can also choose to travel to France with the group and return on a different date. Or vice versa.
