We launched the ISP Buddy Exchange Programme (BEP) in autumn 2018 with the first student exchanges taking place from February 2019. The programme has been a huge success and returns this year, with new student exchanges taking place from January and June 2020.
Some of the words used by our students to describe their experience of the programme include: Life-changing, Educational, Unique, Unforgettable, Enjoyable and Amazing!
The BEP enables reciprocal learning exchanges between ISP schools for a period of one month for students aged between 14 –17 years old. It gives our students the unique opportunity to connect with other people, other cultures and other countries and provide another truly collaborative learning experience.
The programme offers our students amazing and diverse learning opportunities within a safe and secure environment. Buddy exchange students gain real-world learning skills and greater independence. They plan and prepare for a trip across the world, live in a new home with a new, supportive family, have the chance to thrive in a new learning environment with projects and assignments aimed at the student’s level of learning and understanding and they receive daily support and guidance from colleagues and other students in their new school. Students enjoy a memorable international and cultural learning experience to develop their language skills, communicate ideas in a different way, share good practice and create long-term friendships across the world.
If you are a parent or student at an ISP school who would like to find out more or apply to be part of the ISP Buddy Exchange Programme, please contact your school’s Admissions Office.
Applications for the programme must be submitted to schools by 7th November 2019.
