Going on exchange to Japan was an experience I will never forget. It was my first time staying with a foreign family and being away from my Australian life. In Japan I enhanced my Japanese skills and made connections with friends that feel like family now. AIIU was a great exchange program to go through..Alex
My ten month exchange in Japan was an experience I will never forget. AIIU give students like me a once in a lifetime opportunity which I am truly grateful for. Living in Japan improved my Japanese, so after returning to Australia I was able to to go straight into the advanced stream of Japanese at university..Taylah
I cried for the first time in forever. Although I also ended up smiling. I can’t be sad that it’s over, because I am happy that it happened. Thank you everyone who helped my exchange happen!Danson
I could go on for years about all of the things that I have been blessed with experiencing. My host families have been extraordinary and I really felt at home there!Casey
There is a special place in my heart for my Japanese friends, and I’ll always keep coming back to them. Thank you for the best year of my life!Sasha
