Study Abroad

Study Abroad

YFU is a homestay program where you live with a host family, attend the local high school, and interact with new friends. You will understand the country and its people in a way that only someone who has lived there can!

You'll benefit academically as you learn in a global setting, and gain knowledge through the unique strengths of your school abroad.

We look for students who are flexible, have a spirit of adventure, and who will enjoy the challenge of adapting to new people in a new culture.

There is a program perfect for you!
Every YFU study abroad program includes the following:
  • Placement with a carefully selected host family
  • Support for students and families through counselling, tutoring, and other means (as needed)
  • 24-hour worldwide professional emergency assistance
  • Round trip international travel from Toronto (students may pay the difference to fly from their airport of choice)
  • Airport and train station assistance from YFU staff and volunteers
  • Support and orientations before, during and after your exchange
  • Support from YFU Canada, and the host country YFU office while on program
  • Enrollment in a high school for year and semester programs; some summer programs also include school sessions
  • Outbound Coordinator guiding you through the application and exchange process.
  • Many YFU programs offer optional organized activities to visit sights of local interest
  • Comprehensive medical, dental, accident, theft, liability, emergency cancellation and baggage insurance
