From how old can you go on exchange?

We could come here and say that there is no rule about how old you can go on an exchange or a best age to do so, but if we did, we wouldn't be being sincere. The reality is that to study in another country you need to have a certain responsibility.

Therefore, Egali packages designed for teenagers have minimum age of 13 years as a prerequisite. These programs are carried out in groups, with the support of group leaders, whose role is to provide assistance to underage students.

There is also the possibility of doing a non-group package. What changes in this option are the destinations available and the accommodation, which is in a family home. In group programs, students have the possibility of staying on the campus of the university where they will study.

What is the maximum age to go on exchange?

This question is very easy to answer! After the age of 13, There is no age limit to go on exchange and not even a specific best age!

Many people have the impression that they are “too old” to go on an exchange, and the truth is that this age barrier simply does not exist. It is possible to have this experience with 30, 40, 50 years… In this post you will be able to see the reasons why exchange programs are an incredible experience after the age of 40.

Here at Egali we have some General English courses aimed at this audience, in addition to those aimed at professional specializations. It is also possible to make groups for a specific destination. Accommodation options include homestays, StayWise By Egali, or student housing. The choice of accommodation will depend on the exchange student's objective, considering that some options are aimed more at young people, such as StayWise By Egali and By Egali accommodations.

It doesn't matter how old you are, what matters is how prepared you are to live this dream! Furthermore, we are sure that regardless of your age, the exchange will bring you knowledge, benefits and experiences that no other experience will bring.
