Exchange Opportunities for 2020

Please find below some important information about Exchange Opportunities for 2020. Please contact me immediately if you are keen to pursue any of these. Keep in mind though that any exchange to the USA requires a bit of extra organisation with regards to visas so can be a three to six month process, that requires you to go to Melbourne for an interview (unless you have a US or Canadian passport).

Possible Exchanges available for 2020

  • Various schools in India, for both male and female students aged 15/16
  • Colegio Anglo Colombiano, Colombia, male and female students aged 15/16
