All schools require a mandatory orientation for all exchange students, so plan to arrive at your host school a week or so prior to the start of classes.

Final exams tend to occur over a week or longer so be careful when scheduling your return flight. When checking the academic calendars via the links below you will notice that the semester for some of the schools extends into January. Special arrangements are made for exchange students to return in December.
