Welcome to FCAD International Exchange! 

FCAD exchange students in Berlin.

Why Go On Exchange

Being an exchange student is a rewarding but challenging experience during which you will learn a lot about yourself and have some fun as well. You will be immersed in the language and culture of your chosen country and live like a local member of your family, town or community and gain skills in inter-cultural learning and understanding. Remember you will not be a tourist.

If you become a FCAD exchange student, you will:

  • Experience the stimulation of completing some of your education in a new and different approach to learning.
  • Gain a rich understanding of another culture and come to better understand your own culture.
  • Develop increased self confidence and a sense of self reliance as a result of your exchange experience.
  • Become aware of career and further study options you haven’t thought of before.
  • Demonstrate your capacity to cope with change which is increasingly valued by your future employers.
  • Greater general knowledge and understanding of global issues.
