Over 100 US families are still needed to welcome a German high school exchange student into their hearts and home for the coming school year!(for 10 months). Hosting is a great experience for the whole family and is a wonderful way to learn about Germany, the people, the culture and language first hand!
We have boys and girls, ages 15-18, arriving in August, representing a whole variety of interests including all sports, art, music, computers, games, and outdoor activities. You will be able to choose the student's gender, interests and region who best matches your family and experience life in America!
Hosts provide room and board, a place to study, some local transportation, and a supportive
All students speak English, bring spending money, are fully insured and supported by a local rep in your area. Students may share a room with a sibling of the same gender and similar age.

Please fill out the NO-obligation inquiry form online and someone will contact you to discuss further.
Thank you for considering this opportunity to make a difference!
Who needs a Visa?
All persons who wish to study at a high school, college or university in Germany are required to obtain a residence permit. In order to enter Germany, a student visa has to be issued.
Citizens of Canada, Australia, Israel, Japan, New Zealand, The Republic of Korea and the United States, Switzerland, as well as EU citizens may apply for their residence permit after entering Germany without a visa.
Citizens of other countries are required to apply and obtain a student visa prior to enter Germany in order to receive a student’s residence permit (an option also open to Canadian citizens).
New: Since the new Immigration Act (Zuwanderungsgesetz) has taken effect on 1st January 2005 it is not only possible to apply for a German student visa (immatriculation has already been confirmed) but also to apply for a visa in order to find acceptance at a German university (person is still searching for a spot at a German university and still has to be immatriculated)
Please note: A visa in order to study in Germany is a so called national visa and does not automatically entitle you to enter the other Schengen countries (Austria, Belgium, Denmark, Finland, France,
Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain and Sweden). In order to enter the other Schengen countries you have to apply for a Schengen visa – if required - at the
consulate of the country which is your primary destination.
