University Students in Cultural Exchange Program in Brazil

What’s an exchange program?

A student exchange program is a program in which students from a secondary school or university study abroad at one of their institution’s partner institutions.

Student exchanges became popular after World War II, and are intended to increase the participants’ understanding and tolerance of other cultures, as well as improving their language skills and broadening their social horizons. An exchange student typically stays in the host country for a period of 6 to 10 months. International students or those on study abroad programs may stay in the host country for several years. Some exchange programs offer academic credit.
