Webinar about studying abroad after high school

Gap year in Costa Rica? Summer school in Bali? Full degree in Korea?

After graduating high school, the world is your oyster – millions of options to choose from. More and more young people head abroad for traveling, working, and studying. The experiences gained abroad can be the key for interesting career opportunities, personal growth, and lifelong friendships – immense values that cannot be measured in any currency.

Join the event “From Home to Beyond Abroad” to get inspired about internationalization and hear tips from students, professionals and celebrities! Our stars of the day are all students, Peter Vesterbacka (Angry Birds, Slush) and Joalin Loukamaa, the Finnish-Mexican representative of the world famous pop group Now United.

Don't think about it, just do it! I sincerely recommend Asia Exchange to anybody daydreaming about Asian horizons, and if I have a single piece of advice: Don't think about it, just do it!
