Study in Asia - Asia Exchange and French students

Students’ home universities

Where do our students come from?

“We’ve heard great things about Asia Exchange, particularly about your programs in Indonesia and Thailand.” – Mr. Andy Wilcox, Business Associate, The Harvard Advocate, Harvard University

Asia Exchange welcomes students from any country in the world to its programs.

During our history, we’ve had 3500 students from 350 universities and 45 different nationalities studying at our partner universities in Asia. We are lucky to add to this number constantly as well as to receive applications from countries new to us.  We welcome students from any university around the world into our programs.

When Asia Exchange was first established in 2007 in Finland, most of our students came from Finland and Germany. By now, we’ve had students from every university in Finland as well as students from dozens of German universities throughout the country.

Today, we’re proud to be able to provide our students genuinely international study abroad experiences in Asia. One semester in a given program often hosts students from a dozen different countries. In addition to our students getting to know Asian culture and language, they will also meet and befriend students from all over the world – their peers in the program.

Our students benefit from the unlimited quota agreements we’ve made with our host universities – we can accept every student who completes the application process successfully. This means students can go abroad with a group of friends or a significant other and we can guarantee a place in the program for everybody.

We are extremely proud of our student body. Most of our students come from top European and North American universities but we accept students from anywhere in the world. A competitive, international atmosphere in class encourages our students not only to compete with their peers but also with themselves – how to make the most out of the study abroad program and bring home as many skills and as much new knowledge as they can.
