Arriving the school campus for the first time was probably the greatest experience I had ever had. First, I got to see the whole campus area, but after that when I walked into the dorms, the real surprise occurred when all the other students came to welcome me and introduce themselves. I got many new friends at the first day. Later that day, although I was tired from the travelling, we had fun at the dorm, which made my first day a much better experience than I could have ever imagined.

Considering the academics, I can tell from my experience that it was something unique. Small-size classes let the students get much more help and personal teaching that fits different students better. In Pennington, a big part of the teachers live on campus or at least nearby, which gives the students a chance to know their teachers and even their families well.

I spent one of the best year of my life on those mountains, with friends I knew were friends for life. One doesn’t get opportunities like these many times in life, so if you have a chance to exceed yourself, go for it and don’t let anything slow you down!

I would recommend an exchange year to everybody. I cannot find words to describe my year and all the great experiences. During my year, I learned so many new things, things that cannot be learned anywhere else. It was also a great feeling to come back home, and think that I just spent a year abroad, and also made it back home!

The UP Global’s team has been professional and reliable. My sons Aleksi and Jesper studied three years at a boarding school in New York. They played ice hockey on the varsity team of their school, and they graduated and received their high-school diplomas in the spring. Everything went great, and both boys plan to continue playing hockey in North America. For the boys, the experience has been great, and we are very satisfied with the decision.

We are happy when we know Sara is doing great in school, her passion to develop her instrumental skills continues to grow, and her life with all new friends in a new place is well-settled. We are happy to recommend UP Global as an organization for everyone who is thinking about an exchange year or studying abroad. You will not get this kind of opportunity from anywhere else. We are glad that Sara found out about UP, and here we are! For us it is important, that we have received personal service, and UP is really in this together with us.

A young student has to be interested in the exchange year, and I encourage families to offer their youngsters a change to go abroad. An exchange year fits well for curious and open-minded students. It is unique life experience that one can’t get anywhere else. A big benefit of a boarding school option is that the overall success of the exchange year doesn’t depend on a host family. At a boarding school, there is a big community of students and schools’ adults to help and support the exchange student. Also student’s language skills improve very quickly!
