National Director of Student Exchange Australia New Zealand, Mr Nick Lorentzen, commented,“Participating in an overseas exchange offers students the opportunity to experience new cultures, improve their language skills, enhance independence and maturity, and gain an important edge when it comes to future career and study opportunities. Each scholarship attracts plenty of entries from across Australia and New Zealand each year and we are proud to be in a position where we can increase the number of scholarships as well as deliver a diverse range of categories. ”

Student Exchange Australia and New Zealand is committed to its mission by offering the unique experience of living and studying in another culture and to enable young people to develop the skills and awareness that will enhance their future potential.
