Study in Germany or Switzerland

This year, six New Brunswick students are now experiencing this life-changing opportunity in either Germany or Argentina. They left Canada in early August and will return at the end of the school year.  They are all settling into their new schools, host families and communities, and we anticipate this to be a terrific opportunity for personal growth and maturity.  We look forward to offering this program to more New Brunswick students next year.

The scholarship will include:

  • return international airfare to Germany or Switzerland and transportation to the host community
  • all tuition costs with the host school
  • any language training that may be offered in the host country
  • accommodations and meals with a host family
  • a modest monthly spending allowance (although participants may want to bring additional funds)
  • medical insurance
  • additional costs that may be incurred, such as transportation to school, uniforms (if required), school trips, etc.
  • costs associated with securing a visa (if required)
  • orientation sessions prior to departure and debrief sessions upon return to New Brunswick

The program is being organized in partnership with Youth for Understanding (YFU) in Germany and Switzerland, a well established and trusted organization that we have worked with for a number of years to bring German and Swiss students to New Brunswick as part of our New Brunswick International Student Program (NBISP).  YFU has also been our partner for receiving students through this Study Abroad Program for the last two years.  For more information on YFU, please see their website at this link:
