In cooperation with the Bavarian Youth Council, the School Exchange Bavaria-Western Cape will once again offer a non-profit student exchange program based on reciprocity with Bavaria in Germany.

Conversely, the South African students spend 10 weeks in a Bavarian partner family and school.

Exchange dates:

  • End of July/Beginning of August - Mid October 2024 - Bavarian Students in South Africa
