Life-changing student trips

The Global School Alliance can organise every aspect of your school trip to help you deliver a life-changing, unforgettable experience for your students. With partners and suppliers all over the world, we can create a bespoke immersive education experience itinerary for your students.

Our student exchange trips are designed to prepare students for the culture of tomorrow by helping them develop the social, moral, spiritual and cultural strengths that will enable them to succeed in the wider world.

Unlike a traditional school trip, our fully-immersive student exchange visit will enable your pupils to experience first-hand what it’s like to go to a school (a partner school) with a very different culture, lifestyle and curriculum. These life-changing experiences encourage personal development and teach valuable life skills such as leadership, maturity and independence. Students will also have the opportunity to learn languages and practice in an authentic context with native speakers.

  • Generally 8-14 days (depending on age and destination).
  • An immersive experience with peers to learn about culture, education system, language and more.
  • In-school immersion: 3-4 days within a partner school to engage with peers, go to classes, do exciting authentic activities together to learn more about each other and what it’s like to go to school in that country. Typically take part in sports and traditional arts and crafts sessions. The visitors are welcomed with a welcome assembly and leaving assembly/presentations.
  • Sightseeing and exploring the local area: eat at local restaurants, visit local landmarks,
