Whether you travel alone, with another student or with a group of students will largely depend on what country you are going to. There are some countries that require that all students, no matter what country they are from, arrive on one day or within a specific time-frame, in which case you will most likely be traveling with other students. Other countries leave it up to the student, their family and the first host family to decide on a date of arrival, in which case you more then likely will be traveling alone. We call this an “independent departure”. Please check your country’s specific document requirement sheets for your target departure date.
