All my friends did their abroad studies during their studies. I kind of missed this opportunity. While I was writing my Bachelor Thesis, I really didn't have a clue what to do now. Work and Travel in Australia like everyone else? AuPair like all the 18 YO? But then I heard about Asia Exchange from a friend.

The application is done in a really short time, there was no long waiting time with worries. My acceptance letter came in really soon after I've sent my application. The special thing was, that you don't have to be enrolled in your home university. A perfect shot for me.

I organised my accommodation on my own, but found some people in a facebook group organised by Asia Exchange. When we arrived they also organised a special weekend for some people, so got to know each other better. At our university there were two mentors, one from finland, one from the US. They organised field trips, freetime activities, had office hours at our university, so we could talk to them about every issue.

They also organised appointements at the registration office for our visas, I didn't have to do anything. That was awesome.

I felt in good hands with Asia Exchange, everything was easy and well structured. If you're doing a gap Year between your Highschool and your Bachelors and your Bachelors and your Masters, it's a perfect way to do it.

How can this program be improved?
The offered classes could be more flexible and variable. Also the academic standard could be a bit higher.

I was studying at Udayana University for two semesters! It was as an wonderful experience that I would recommend for anyone thinking about going abroad! Bali is the perfect place to learn and experience different cultures. Except that the surfing, food, beaches, people, sun and much more had made this to an amazing time. Asia exchange has been helpful during the whole time and been given good information that was needed. Bali will be my second home forever and Asia exchange made this possible! I recommend this for everyone !

I studied in Thailand at the Siam University (Bangkok) for one year(2017/18) and it was a great time because the Siam University offers a good education and support, I also had a great time because I had the chance to understand its culture and travel in Thailand and neighbor countries. So, if you are interested in Asian countries, do not hesitate or just think about it – just go. Because it is wonderful here 😉
Also, the support and organization from Asia Exchange are very good. Even if you have later some questions or problems they try their best to help you. All in all, if you are looking for an opportunity to go as a free mover for an exchange semester - Asia Exchange is a good choice because they are a reliable organization

I've been studying almost 8 years and I finally got courage to go strudy overseas. And damn it was the best choice and time of my life so far. Everything went quite smoothly and that was made sure by Asia Exchange. Everyone got a little trouble with the visa process but it got handled very well and if I understood correctly no one had problems the next semester with it.

This could've not been made any easier by Asia Exchange and they helped us out along the process the best they could. I got everything handled just going by their directions and I didn't forgot anything important home because of their good guide!

As I said the exchange experience was the best time of my life so far. I met incredible people (students, locals, everyone overall), ate the most varied food in many different Asian countries (as I got to travel quite much) and most importantly got better knowledge of my studying field. I always forget to mention something important when I'm listing these things but overall it was awesome experience and would recommend to it for everyone. It was an eye opener and made me realize how awesome traveling is and how you have to just take a one big leap to experience such a great trip.

If you are thinking of going and even alone (as I did), just do it! It feels scary at first but you meet a lot of new cool people on the way and they are in the same situation!

I would definitely recommend Asia Exchange and styduing in Malaysia. Everything went very well and if there were any problems on the way, Asia Exchange were there to help in any questions or problems. Styduing in UPM was an experince which I am glad i did. Everyone in the campus were always ready to help and my classmates from Malaysia and from all over the worl made studying also fun. There is so much to see and do in Malaysia that everyone will find something for them. I could have stayed longer.
