Increasingly, universities and employers seek students and young adults who have a sense of the world beyond their own communities—and are comfortable interacting with people from other countries and cultures. Businesses, government, education providers and other organisations need people who have international experiences and insights, as well as critical skills required to tackle the defining global challenges of the 21st century. That’s why all of our AFS study abroad programmes are designed around building global competency.

“Discover a new culture, a new language. Make friends for life from all parts of the world. It’s a year in which you’ll grow up and get to know yourself—your limits and your capabilities. You’ll change completely in the best way possible.”
