When Can I Go on Exchange Again?

Traveling alone or living in another country might be one of the things you want to do during your student time or before you get a serious job. Exploring new places and meeting new people are certainly a fun experience and contribute to your personal development. However, in times of a pandemic, this is sadly also one of the things that seem impossible at the moment. Hopefully, soon it will be possible to do an internship or volunteering project again!

Where and when can I go?

Safety of the exchange participants is the priority and travel advice changes constantly. The outgoing exchange teams keep a close eye on this as well as on local restrictions and regulations. From January 2021 onwards, exchanges within Europe are planned to start again. Our partner countries in Europe are Italy, Portugal, Ukraine, Germany, Poland, and Lithuania. Exchanges outside of Europe will not start until the summer of 2021.

How do I get to know more?

Organizing an exchange requires some preparation, and the pandemic has made this even more difficult. Therefore, AIESEC facilitates free personal info chats with our members from the outgoing exchange teams. If you sign up on our website, someone from your local AIESEC office will contact you for more information tailored to your situation.
