Since 1995 MyEducation has sent young people into the world to experience new cultures, lifestyles and languages. With offices in Denmark, Norway and the UK, MyEducation is an independent organisation that values the importance of international understanding and facilitates programs for young people to travel, study and complete foreign exchange programs overseas.
Our goal is to promote an understanding of cultural and linguistic differences among youth and to help them with their professional and personal development. We send young people aged from 15-35 to many parts of the world on high school, university and professional placements. These programs require students to become active participants in family, school and community life. Our programs are educational and cross cultural and allow students, host families and local people to be involved in a memorable experience that they will cherish for the rest of their lives.
MyEducation is staffed by people with a mixture of backgrounds. Some have experience in the travel industry and others in education. Many of our staff also have experienced an exchange themselves or have lived overseas. Our staff have a personal understanding of the challenges of completing an exchange program which is evident in the level of support that we are able to offer students and parents.
The MyEducation offices are also supported by a network of people both overseas and in the UK. We work with established program partners in over 25 destinations. These partners work in close communication with our staff to ensure our programs follow strict regulations and are a success for everyone involved. In the UK we are also supported by a group of volunteer local area representatives and host families who support our foreign students that arrive on exchange in the UK and work with British students who wish to travel overseas.
