OUR STORY              

Our story began from our own experiences in the mid 1990’s. We were young top-athletes and we wanted to go out in the big world and try our wings. We wanted to find out how to smoothly combine studying and top-level athletics. We found a lot of good things, but also a lot of things that could be better. That is how our idea was born over 20 years ago.

Now two decades later, we have helped hundreds of young people who were in the same situation as we were in the 1990’s. During these 20 years, we have developed our organization and expanded our partner network significantly, so we are able to offer opportunities not only for student-athletes, but also for a lot of other students. And we have made this financially possible for everyone. If a student who enjoys music, dance, other arts, or just adventures and international experiences in general, wants to go abroad and wants to decide his/her location, is it possible with our help!

We are proud of what we can do. Our expertise is based on our own experiences and our long-term cooperation with our customers and partner schools. For a student, we customize an exchange experience that is just right for him/her. The student gets to choose academics, top-level sports, or other activities or interests, and combine it with the student life abroad in a safe environment.

We enroll our students into carefully chosen private schools, with which we deal directly with no third parties involved. The private boarding schools are safe and dense communities, where everything needed for studies, sports, and activities are nearby. Our concept is very unique in the whole world, and the commitment ja professionality towards our work are the promises to our every customer.

Welcome to journey of international experiences with UP Global!
