    “Hey Guys! Every day we think about ripples of opportunities and just let them go instead of catching them up. That was why I decided to grab the chance with the help of Asia Exchange and went to Thailand. My exchange at the Siam University was a wonderful grip about educational rhythm of study with multiple learning in different ways and different land. It is for open-minded students who looking for unfolding not only books but the people who live World apart. It worked so well for me, physically and mentally. If you have any questions do not hesitate to contact me.”

    “Hey guys! Studying in Phuket was an absolute dream. The people are so friendly, the scenery amazing, and the food spicy… but yummy! As I was first contemplating going abroad, Germany was my first choice. While I was thinking it over, a friend came up to me and invited me to go with him to Phuket. I’m so glad I went with him because the experience was priceless. I got to meet so many interesting people and explore places I didn’t know even existed. If you are having a similar problem figuring out where to go, I’d love to talk with you and convince you to go to Phuket”

    “Hi everyone! I went to HUFS, Seoul, when I was 27. As an older student I was worried that I would have a hard time making friends, as university age is usually said to be fresh out of high school. But there were so many people of my age and older either in the graduate classes or in the undergraduate Asia Exchange programs. In the end, it was one of the most amazing experiences I’ve had to date. So much that I’ll be going back for a second semester soon! If I have any advice to hand down, pack lightly and keep flight transfers to a maximum of 1, cause you’re not going to want to sleep when you arrive! If you still need to be convinced or have any questions, please email me, I’d love to help you out!”
