Pupil Exchanges

Exchanges between pupils in the European Schools

Exchanges give pupils in years 3, 4 and 5 the chance to improve their second or third languages by visiting another European School, with the intention of returning to the school of origin. The pupil pursues classes in his usual language section while staying with a host family speaking his second or third language. Pupils in the 3rd or 4th year may stay for a period of two-four weeks and fifth year pupils must stay for the duration of the first semester.

All exchanges are dependent on the approval of both directors. Approval will only be given if an exchange can be arranged without administrative or financial charge to the schools. An exchange can only be approved if the pupil’s subjects can all be taken in the host school.
