Making studying abroad in Asia easy and affordable for everyone
Asia Exchange provides academic semesters in a number of quality universities in Asia. We want to provide amazing and life-changing study abroad semesters to as many students as possible. This is why we keep all our fees as low as possible as well.
Asia Exchange is financed by the host universities. We negotiate the tuition fees with each partner university and are thus able to provide the programs at a lower than normal price. Like most living expenses as well, tuition fees in Asia are generally much lower in Asia than in the West.
The fees cover the placement in the program, tuition fees, and our comprehensive services.
The tuition fees cover
- Guaranteed placement in the program within 1-7 days of submitting the application*
- Application process
- Guidance and services before, during and after the program
- An official acceptance letter and an official transcript from the Asian university
- A comprehensive Asia Exchange Guide with lots of useful information and tips
- Orientation at the destination
Depending on the destination, the fees may also cover
- An orientation webinar before the semester
- An Ice-Breaking-event
- Books and course materials (if not included, they don’t exceed 50 EUR / USD)
- Orientation weekend trip in selected programs as well as company visits
- A contact person at the destination
Traveling to and from the destination and the accommodation are not included in the fees. This gives you the possibility to organize your travels as you wish and explore Asia before and after the semester.
We help you out with all the accommodation arrangements by providing you with information about options to choose from. Some destinations include a pre-booked dorm on the campus, and there is a large number of off-campus accommodation options available as well for all budgets and preferences.

Why two different prices?
Asia Exchange is a European study abroad organization. Tuition fees in European universities and for European students are usually very low – if not free – and, thus, Asia Exchange programs are lower for Europeans as well.
The fees in Asia Exchange’s programs are across the board affordable when compared to other independent program providers, which can often charge several thousands of USD for a study abroad semester.
If you apply for two semesters for the same or two different universities, you get a 100 EUR / 120 USD discount off the second semester’s tuition fee
If you apply for the whole BBA-degree at Siam University, you get a 300 EUR / 360 USD discount off the second semester’s tuition fee.
If you share the news of your application to Asia Exchange on Facebook or Instagram, you get 10 EUR / USD discount off the tuition fee.
Late application fee
The application must be submitted by the application deadline with all the required attachments. If the student applies for a study abroad program or submits required documents after the application period has ended, we are obliged to charge an additional fee of 100 EUR (or 120 USD for students outside of Europe), according to our terms and conditions.
