Aspect Foundation has been a leader in international student exchange since 1985. With three decades of experience and partners in over 30 countries worldwide, Aspect Foundation offers you a world of expertise and programming. Our dedicated staff members understand what it’s like to live and study in another country – many of us are former exchange students and world travelers ourselves!

Personal Service

Every student is special to us. We are a program that is small enough to give you and your family the personal attention and preparation you deserve. An Aspect staff member will help you every step of the way – preparing for your departure, during your stay, and after your return. We will do everything possible to make this the most rewarding year of your life.


As an Aspect Foundation student, you will receive solid preparation for this important experience. You will receive detailed information letters and a special Aspect Foundation Student Handbook for your reference. We will provide a pre-departure orientation in your home country and language, and a welcome orientation upon arriving in the United States.


Your safety and security is our highest priority. Aspect Foundation was the first exchange organization in the U.S. to adopt an Exchange Student Bill of Rights and Responsibilities. You have the right to feel secure and supported during this experience. Throughout your exchange year, there will always be someone you can contact. From your local Aspect coordinator, to our 24/7 emergency line, we are always just a phone call away.

Explore America

As an Aspect Foundation student, you will have the chance to explore exciting destinations around the U.S., on tours offered by our established travel partner. These reasonably priced, chaperoned tours are very popular, and are designed exclusively for exchange students! We encourage our students to explore their host communities and all the wonderful places the U.S. has to offer.
