“Congratulations! If you read this sentence, it means that you’re interested in taking the wonderful opportunity of going abroad. Deciding to go to Thailand to the University of the Thai Chamber of Commerce was one of the best – if not the best – decisions I’ve ever taken. Bangkok is the perfect city if you are – or want to become – an adventurous and open-minded person. All of us had doubts before heading off on our adventure and I’m sure the same goes for you too.

“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 there! When we first planned our semester abroad, we were accepted to an university in Canada. But then we came across Asia Exchange and were amazed by the opportunity to study in Bali. Looking back, we could not be more grateful for letting the chance go of studying in Canada and going to Bali instead. In one semester, we grew personally and developed a business out of there after returning a half year later. Now we commute between Germany and Bali and love to call Bali my second home. A semester abroad is the best possibility to learn a lot about yourself and grow personally.  Go to Bali, do some yoga, find your inner peace, and awake your true potential. 

If there is anything you want to know about our study experience or living in Bali, please don’t hesitate to shoot us an E-Mail.

“Helly, my name is Yvonne and I am an Austrian student who spent Spring 2020 at Hankuk University of Foreign Studies in Seoul, South Korea. During those four months abroad, three things happened: I bowed to everyone without feeling like I had been transported into the 18th century, I ate Kimchi and Kimbap until I had a stomach ache, and I gained friends for a lifetime. Still not convinced: Feel free to contact me to discover my Korea, so that I can help you discover yours!”
