ISP Cultural Exchange, previously known as ISP Buddy Exchange Programme, encourages the reciprocal exchange across regions where ISP schools are located. The aim is to offer students with opportunity to experience a culture different from their own through a home stay and attending another ISP school for a month.

Learning outcomes

  • Knowledge: Know about a range of cultures, traditions and history.
  • Skills: I have developed my language and communication skills, cultural competence, autonomy and self-confidence.
  • Understanding: Develop my understanding of individuals, communities and global issues using social awareness and empathy.
  • Confidence: Grow my confidence in being immersed in a new culture and learning in new settings.

Our daughter had a great time, learned a new culture, gained more independence and she met a great host family and many new friends.

It is rewarding to see the growth your students have during the process. They come back being different people with different visions of the world around them. Also, they come back eager for more experiences.

It helped me to be much more open minded, also to get to know new cultures and to become independent. But the most important part is that I had fun.

The 2022/23 Programme

This year, 32 students from 25 ISP Schools had the eye-opening opportunity of taking part in the BEP in 2022/23. Students gained confidence, independence and lifelong friends while immersing themselves in another culture and experiencing a new education system. Congratulations to everyone who took part!
