Student Exchange Program at LPU
Studying overseas is more than a global exposure, it’s a personal education.Most students never have the opportunity to live in a different country for an entire school year. Students come back with enhanced knowledge, maturity, cultural understanding and lifetime friends from their host countries.Through an intercultural exchange, students learn more about themselves through the experiences they come across.
