January 25th

The presentation of the handbook is done. We just wanted a small presentation of what we are hoping to achieve with this handbook; that more students want to experience the life of being an exchange student. We think that a lot of students actually are thinking about it, but that they are unsure of how to proceed. And they don’t know who to ask, because everyone doesn’t know anybody who’s been an exchange student.


We also made the list of contents. As we have calculated the handbook will include 20 pages, but that can of course change. We will include some statistics that can be interesting, like which country is most common one to choose and how many boys / girls that are exchange students. There will also be some statistics about how many that would like to go back after their exchange year has ended. Another part of the handbook is presenting the 4 major organizations in Sweden (YFU, EF, STS and Explorius) so you can compare them and see which one fits you the best. There will also be a part with some information about the year, like what you can expect, the school, the family etc. This is important, because you have to know what you are getting yourself into, and you have to be aware of that the year wont be a dance on roses throughout the whole year, because there will be periods that are tougher than others. Then we will include the interviews with the previous exchange students, so that you can get a point of view of how others experienced their years. After that we will go through the scholarships, so it’s easier for those who need financial support to apply for them. The last part will be questions and answers; common questions and worries that most exchange students have before they leave for their year abroad.

Today we put together all the statistics. We made three graphs; one is about the most popular countries to go to as an exchange student (the United States), the next one is about the amount of girl compared to boys that choose to be exchange students...

Today we made the front page of our handbook. It was very exciting because now it really feels that we are starting to get somewhere with the actual handbook. We are doing the handbook in a program called “Adobe Indesign CS3” which is a v...

Today we continued with what we were doing last time; trying to find scholarships that are supporting exchange students. We haven’t found as many as we hoped for, but here comes the last ones. “Axel och Sofia Alms stiftelse”; they g...

Back in Sweden! Today we started to look into what different options you have if you want to apply for a scholarship. This wasn’t as easy as we had thought; most of them have some kind of restriction or demand that you don’t achieve throu...

This is officially the last updating for 2011! And therefore we will not write anything significant, just that in a few hours we are going to London to spend New Years Eve there. Merry Christmas and a happy New Year!   ...
