Application process and requirements
The application process for Three-month and Summer Cultural Exchanges involves two easy steps: a Preliminary Application with some basic information and a longer, more detailed Full Application which is used for matching. Most students submit their applications in the fall of the school year prior to the actual exchange. Since many schools are semestered and some students may not learn about the programmes until the new year, CEEF accepts all school-approved applications sent to us throughout the school year. Matching begins in April, and most students have been partnered by the end of May. Some late matching does take place in June and July. However, the earlier applications are received, the better an applicant's chance of getting an exchange partner in the country they prefer.
