Frequently Asked Questions
"My dream was always to travel the world and I am so grateful that GROW Abroad has given me this AMAZING opportunity to go on an exchange year to Germany. GROW Abroad is not just working to make this journey of mine successful but they are also building a relationship with me that I will always treasure."
“My exchange experience in Cape Town has been the most intriguing and eye opening experience of my life. I've learned so much, from the culture and way of living in south Africa to becoming more independent and confident in a new environment. I made amazing new friends hopefully for life.”
“One of the previous students my family hosted, knew my passion and encouraged me to pursue venturing overseas. I thought to myself, why not, I am ready for this, my family believes in me and the students that came through our home unknowingly played a part in me venturing overseas. What a dream!”
“Being an exchange student is a unique experience. The way I lived with my host family was completely different then at home in Italy. But I had to adapt and I grew up on a personal level. I had the possibility to live for 6 moths in a new style of live that I’ve brought in my house once I got back.”
