Asia is by far the most populous continent in the world. Its economic, political and cultural importance is growing rapidly and the influence of Asia is only going to increase in the future. Studying abroad in Asia will provide you with more chances for success both at present and in the future.
Asia Exchange wishes to encourage students to study abroad in Asia. We award scholarships twice a year in value of up to 500 EUR for students from our target countries.

The student applying for the scholarship needs to be currently enrolled in an institution of higher education. The scholarship can be granted for one semester abroad.

The person who receives the scholarship will commit to writing a blog during the study abroad semester and submitting a study abroad report after the program.
Remember that you may be eligible for scholarships and funding from your home university, government and various foundations supporting studying abroad, too. Read more about funding here.
MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR PARTICIPATION?
Since students studying at our partner universities are ‘free-movers’, they do not have to be currently enrolled in a university or come from a university with an existing bilateral agreement with one of our host universities.
Asia Exchange was particularly developed to meet those students’ needs who are unable to find a suitable study abroad placement and destination through their own university, are left outside of placement quotas or are at a point of their life and studies where a traditional institution to institution exchange is not an option.
Asia Exchange encourages interdisciplinary studies, i.e. studying subjects which are not necessarily a part of a student’s major. For example, business or cultural studies are useful in both professional and personal life, regardless of one’s major, and can be added to a degree as electives or minors.
