Time is running out to apply for an OSEF-ASBL reciprocal exchange to Europe for 2018/2019!

OSEF is a not-for-profit organisation facilitating student exchanges between Canada and Europe since 1995. Students are matched with partners from France, Belgium and Spain, based on their age and personal interests,  and take turns hosting each other for the desired program duration.

OSEF offers an 11-week Educational Program that involves students attending school during their stay, or the 1-month Summer Program that has no school involvement.

Students hone their French or Spanish language skills as they learn about a different culture and live an experience they will not soon forget!

Program costs include (return) travel from Victoria to Paris, 2 day tour of Paris and 2 night hotel stay, (1 night for Summer Program), meals,  all necessary transfers by air or train travel to the European destination, and a comprehensive coverage for hospital, repatriation, and third party liability insurance. 

Student groups are chaperoned by adult OSEF team members during their travel and stay in Paris.

Apply early to ensure best partner matching options!
