Being an exchange student as well as hosting one, opens up a whole new world for our GAPP students. Students not only get to share their culture, but they will be able to immerse themselves completely in a foreign culture, becoming more independent and open in the process and forming friendships and connections that last a lifetime.
GAPP group exchanges are cost efficient: Travel to the host community (airfare+ ground transportation) and spending money are all it takes (a basic exchange without extensive tourist program ranges between appr. $ 1,600 - $ 2,300 per student)
Once a school partnership has been established between a school in the US and a school in Germany, GAPP supports two kinds of exchanges:
GAPP does not charge a fee for any of its services connected to short-term exchanges nor does GAPP make any arrangements for the exchange. The entire implementation of the program is the responsibility of the school administrations.
If your school already has a German partner school and is planning on travelling to Germany in 2017, you will find all relevant information in the section “Group Exchanges”.
