How can I become an AFSer?

You’ve explored AFS programs online or met us in person. Now you are ready to apply! Here's what to expect on your intercultural journey with AFS:
STEP1

Find a program and start applying

Our application is thorough. But knowing some key things about you will help make your AFS experience amazing. If you’re stuck, just give us a call.

You’ve been selected!

Not everyone becomes an AFS student. Your application, interviews and recommendations tell us how ready you are for an international student exchange. Now the fun begins!

STEP3

Attend your AFS Orientation Session

AFS orientation sessions (before, during and after your program) help you navigate personal and cultural growth opportunities while you’re abroad.

Jump on plane or train and meet the world

Dedicated AFS volunteers, host families, and staff are prepared to make your AFS experience an intercultural learning adventure you’ll never forget. 

Get in touch!

If you couldn't find AFS in your country, share your information with us and we will get in touch with you as soon as possible. You can also send us a message on Facebook!
