Asia Exchange’s Official Statement Regarding Summer/Autumn Semester 2020 And Spring Semester 2021

Asia Exchange provides life-changing experiences for students all over the world. Our commitment to ensuring smooth and safe study abroad semesters has not changed due to the current situation with COVID-19. While we continue monitoring the situation and taking care of the safety of our students and staff, we hope and trust that better times will come. We continuously aim to stay one step ahead in our thinking and we now have our eyes on the upcoming summer and autumn 2020 and spring 2021 intakes.

“We take all necessary actions in order to make sure our students are well protected and safe” – Director of the international office at Universiti Putra Malaysia in Kuala Lumpur

“I do feel safe and reassured from the actions the schools are taking, and I’m glad HUFS implemented online classes to help avoid further spread of COVID-19. Our chances of getting sick are extremely low due to their extreme cautiousness.  The future does seem to be getting better, especially with in-person classes on the horizon and the anticipation of the campus activities starting. The school is still continuing their activities such as the Buddy Program and the GAT program in April, and have adjusted them to the new schedule.” – Student at Hankuk University in Seoul, South Korea

All destinations are open for applications and applying is safe

All our destinations are organizing their summer and autumn 2020 and spring 2021 semesters as normal. Asia Exchange offers a flexible and student-friendly cancellation policy for new applicants, which allows students to cancel their semester up to one month before the semester starts. This means that it’s safe for students to apply, even in situations where they cannot be certain about the future. Students also have the option to change their destination or postpone the semester if necessary. In addition, we will even refund the application fee if the student is not able to participate in the study program due to circumstances caused by the COVID-19 pandemic (meaning that all fees paid to Asia Exchange are refunded in such an event up to 1 month prior to the start of the semester).
