About ESE

Equal Student Exchange (ESE) is a volunteer-based student network which provides free information about student exchange and study overseas opportunities.

Focusing on providing information to students from developing countries, ESE acknowledges the financial and organisational obstacles these students must often come to face. It is the belief of ESE that both universities and students can benefit through international engagement. A more culturally diverse range of international students will contribute to the continued exchange of knowledge, ideas and culture between different universities and countries.

The volunteers of ESE recognize the importance of establishing enduring educational, cultural and professional links through student exchange.

Yes, it has been a while since our last article... 
The ESE team, just like our primary target audience, are, were, and will be - students ~ this means we have faced the same time commitments that many of you have. Since our last correspondence, our team members have been finishing university assignments, research theses, applying for jobs and securing full-time work. Now that we have secured full-time work we will have more of a routine schedule in which to set aside time for our favorite project, Equal Student Exchange (ESE)...

Thank you for remaining a patient member of our community over the years (hard to believe it's been four years since we started this information sharing community). Looking forward to working with more aspiring students from disadvantaged and developing contexts.

Stay tuned...
