Are you looking to be an exchange student?

How do I apply?

There are a few steps to the process of applying, but nothing too daunting and we are here to help you through that process.

The selection process includes submission of application forms, interviews (some may include both students and parents), a selection process, briefings and orientation. This takes place at a meeting normally held in Christchurch & Nelson in May.

RYE students will be sponsored by a Rotary Club in New Zealand and hosted by a Rotary Club in their exchange country.  RYE will help connect you with clubs willing to support you during your exchange year. The vast Rotary network provides support, friends and many varied opportunities throughout and beyond the exchange year.
