ERFARING
Into har organisert utvekslingsprogrammer siden 1986, og er
spredt over 13 kontorer i like mange land. Det norske kontoret
startet opp i 2008 og har vokst til en liten, men solid avdeling
med 3 fulltidsansatte som kun jobber med utveksling. Alle tre
har selvfølgelig vært på utveksling selv. Into Norge kombinerer
unge, entusiastiske ansatte med mer enn 20 års erfaring hos
våre kolleger i Tyskland og andre europeiske land.
Med mye engasjement og personlig innsats ønsker vi at
utenlandsoppholdet for våre deltakere blir til en vellykket,
uforglemmelig og enestående opplevelse. Samtidig følger vi tre
viktige stikktord, nemlig åpenhet, ærlighet og tydelighet. Vi gir
et realistisk bilde av hva man kan forvente som utvekslingselev,
og vi gir elevene verktøy til å takle problemsituasjoner. På denne
måten håper vi å hindre falske forhåpninger samt å forberede
elevene på vanlige utfordringer som kan oppstå.
Skolene i både Canada og New Zealand har mange års erfaring
innen utveksling. De har ansvaret for å velge ut vertsfamilier
samt for å følge opp våre deltakere i løpet av oppholdet.
Når du blar videre får du vite mer om våre programmer og om de
landene du kan bli kjent med som utvekslingselev.
Hvis du fremdeles har spørsmål, kan du ringe oss eller sende
en e-post.
Mye spennende å lese!
into Education
into Education er godkjent av Kunnskaps-departementet og du
kan søke om utdanningsstipend fra Lånekassen for utvekslingsåret. Til disse programmene får du støtte på mellom 100 000 kr
og 130 000 kr, gitt at utvekslingsåret blir godkjent av skolen din
i Norge. Ta derfor tidlig kontakt med rådgiveren på skolen din.
Denne ordningen evalueres fra år til år.
INNHOLD
HVA ER SPESIELT MED SKOLEVALGSPROGRAMMENE?
I Canada jobber vi med fire forskjellige
skoledistrikt i provinsen British Columbia og i
New Zealand samarbeider vi med en gruppe
skoler som tilhører ODENZ – Outdoor Education
New Zealand.
SKOLEVALG
Du vil selv kunne velge skole. Hver skole tilbyr
et bredt og variert tilbud innen fag, sport og
andre fritidsaktiviteter. Du vil ha en egen
kontaktperson på din skole som er ansatt
for å ta seg av utvekslingselevene. Alle
vertsfamilier er funnet gjennom skolen din,
og det er derfor vanlig at du vil ha vertssøsken
som går på samme skole som deg, selv om
ikke alle vil ha det.
Siden samarbeidet mellom into, skolene
og utvekslingselevene er veldig tett, har vi
mulighet til å tilpasse programmet til hver
enkelt elev. Hvis du har spesielle ønsker eller
behov i forhold til sted, vertsfamilie eller fag
vil vi i de aller fleste tilfeller kunne klare å
tilfredsstille disse ønskene. F.eks. ønsker du å
komme til en vertsfamilie som bor på en gård
hvor det er hester, eller du sliter litt med matte
og trenger ekstra hjelp, vil dette være ting vi vil
ta hensyn til.
TILPASSET DINE FAGKRAV
Du vil ha mulighet til å få se fullstendig fagoversikt ved de forskjellige skolene før du
bestemmer deg. Denne oversikten kan du ta
med deg til rådgiver her i Norge, for å forsikre
deg om at du kan få de riktige fagene mens du
er på utveksling, slik at du får året godkjent.
Etter skoletid vil det være muligheter for å delta
på forskjellige aktiviteter som blir arrangert
gjennom skolen. Tilbudet varierer litt fra skole
til skole, men alle har et sterkt tilbud innen
forskjellige fritidstilbud og idretter, samt diverse
klubber.

INTO LIFE
KJEKT A VITE
INTO ER EN
UTVEKSLINGSSPESIALIST
Organisering
og
gjennomføring
av
elevutvekslings-programmer er kjernen i vårt
arbeid. Alle våre medarbeidere har selv vært
utvekslingselever, og tar denne verdifulle
erfaringen med seg inn i rådgivning av og
forberedelsen for våre deltakere. Dette
garanterer for sikkerhet og profesjonalitet for
deg og dine foreldre.
PERSONLIG MØTE
Etter å ha mottatt en uformell søknad fra deg vil
en representant fra into ta kontakt med deg og
dine foreldre og avtale et tidspunkt for et uforpliktende informasjonsmøte og intervju. Under
dette møtet vil dere få svar på alle spørsmålene
deres. I løpet av denne samtalen vil vi snakke
litt om de forskjellige skolene som passer for
deg og dine ønsker.
HVA ER ANNERLEDES PÅ INTO SINE
FORBEREDELSESKURS?
Ganske enkelt: Kombinasjonen av moro og
effektivitet. Den som er godt forberedt, forbedrer sine muligheter og finner seg rett og
slett bedre til rette i vertslandet. Omtrent to
måneder før avreise avholdes
et
to-dagers
forberedelseskurs. I tillegg til å få informasjon
om forløp, regler og forskrifter, vil du få en
spesielt effektiv forberedelse med på veien
gjennom rollespill, øvelser, kreativt arbeid og
morsomme sketsjer, som fremmer toleransen
overfor andre kulturer. Samtidig vil du bli
overrasket over å bli bedre kjent med deg selv
også. Kurset er selvfølgelig inkludert i prisen.
Vi er overbevist om at riktig forberedelse er det
RETURNEES
Alt er ikke over når du kommer hjem. Vi
inviterer deg til en samling der du kan dele dine
erfaringer med andre. I tillegg organiserer vi
middager og samlinger med jevne mellomrom.
Som returnee kan du også engasjere deg som
intervjuer, messedeltager samt dele dine
erfaringer på forberedelsesseminar. De mest
erfarne returneene er med som ledere på

Mye er likt, men det finnes jo forskjeller!
beste grunnlaget for et vellykket utenlandsopphold. Og positive tilbakemeldinger fra våre
deltakere bekrefter dette.
FORBEREDELSER FOR FORELDRE
I tiden før avreise tilbyr vi et fellesmøte
med foreldrene hvor vi går igjennom viktig
informasjon samt råd og tips til hvordan man
best takler kontakt, problemer og andre ting
som måtte oppstå i tiden eleven er borte.
REFERANSER OG BLOGGER
Du finner brev fra tidligere elever samt linker
til blogger på hjemmesiden vår: www.intoutveksling.no. Vi har også en liste av returnees
som gjerne svarer på alle spørsmål du måtte
ha. Denne fås ved forespørsel.
de forskjellige Orientation Campene! intodeltakere holder sammen, for vårt motto er:
Don´t dream it! Do it!
KONTAKTPERSONER I NORGE
into sørger for kontinuerlig kontakt og
informasjons-utveksling mellom deltakere,
foreldre og våre samarbeidsorganisasjoner. De
som sitter på kontoret i Oslo har alle erfaring
innen utveksling, og de fleste har selv vært
utvekslingselever på videregående nivå.
HVA MER?
into legger stor vekt på personlig kontakt med
sine deltakere. Vi har hatt tett kontakt i mange
år med mange av våre Returnees.
HVORDAN KAN JEG SØKE?
Du søker enten ved å fylle ut søknadsskjemaet
på siste side og sende det inn til oss, eller ved
å gå inn på hjemmesidene våre,
www.into-utveksling.no.

avreise, og ikke fylle 18 år før 31. januar 2013.
Dine gjennomsnittskarakter bør være 3 eller
bedre. Til slutt, og dette er det viktigste, bør du

Det er viktig å huske at du skal forlate dine
vante omgivelser i Norge og tilpasse deg en ny
livsstil og familie i vertslandet.
SØKNAD
For å søke om et utvekslingsår kan du enten
fylle ut søknaden på siste side i brosjyren, og
sende den inn til oss, eller du kan gå inn på
våre hjemmesider www.into-utveksling.no

siste karakterutskrift. Så snart vi har mottatt
søknaden din, som fortsatt ikke er bindende, vil
vi ta kontakt med deg og avtale et tidspunkt for
et møte sammen med deg og foreldrene dine.
INTERVJU OG AKSEPT
På intervjuet blir vi kjent med hverandre.
Meningen med dette intervjuet er å forklare
innholdet til programmet. Samtidig ønsker vi
også å bli bedre kjent med deg og lære mer om
din evne til å forstå og uttrykke deg på engelsk.
Vanligvis kan vi si ifra rett etter intervjuet om
vi kan tilby deg en plass eller ikke. Da vil du få
tilgang til våre elektroniske søknadsskjemaer.
Dette er detaljerte skjemaer på omtrent 14
sider, som delvis skal fylles ut av læreren din,
legen din, deg selv og dine foreldre. Du kan regne
med at det tar to til fire uker å få dette klart.

kontrakt sender vi den videre til skolen du ønsker
å gå på, sammen med en liste med hvilke fag
du må ha mens du er på utveksling. Så er det
bare å vente på å motta en verts-familie. Det er
normalt å få en vertsfamilie fra 1-3 måneder før
avreise. I ventetiden vil du være opptatt med
forberedelser, delta i vår forberedelseshelg,
jobbe deg gjennom visumsøknader og kanskje
ha din egen «farewell fest. Vi sender også ut
månedlige nyhetsbrev fra januar til avreise, samt
bilder og historier fra andre utvekslingselever.
Don’t dream

Ca. to måneder før avreise organiserer vi et 2 dagers forberedelsesseminar. Dette seminaret
vil bli ledet av erfarne kursledere, alle tidligere
deltakere, som vil bli hjulpet av en gruppe aktive
”returnees”. Gjennom morsomme sketsjer,
rollespill, og presentasjoner vil du bli godt
forberedt for ditt opphold i utlandet. Vi gir også
mange praktiske tips. Du vil få all informasjonen
du trenger og svar på alle spørsmål. En god
forberedelse er det beste utgangspunktet for et
vellykket opphold, og dette er tross alt vårt felles
mål. Deltagelse på forberedelsesseminar er
obligatorisk. Dette både for din egen interesse,
og også fordi det er vår plikt å forberede deg på
den best mulige måte.

INTO LIFE
VERTSFAMILIE & SToTTE
Kort sagt:
il deg..
Det er opp t
Den ideelle vertsfamilien er veldig situasjonsavhengig. Det er mulig at elever uten søsken
drømmer om én vertsfamilie med en eller
flere brødre og søstre, mens en annen elev
heller vil være alene i vertsfamilien. Noen er
glade for at det finnes kjæledyr i familien,
mens andre kanskje ikke liker dyr i det hele
tatt. En vertsfamilie må ikke være en typisk
kjernefamilie, men kan også være for eksempel
foreldre som har barn som allerede har flyttet
hjemmefra for å studere, eller par uten barn.
Alenemødre og -fedre kan også tilby et flott
hjem og mye moro. Det viktigste er at kjemien
mellom deg og din vertsfamilie stemmer.
Den ideelle vertsfamilien er den som forstår
seg på deg. Hvor mange medlemmer familien
har spiller ikke stor rolle så lenge du trives i
familien. Vennlighet og gjestfrihet er nøkkelen
til at dette blir ditt andre hjem. Men husk at
vennlighet er en toveis gate, og holdningen
og vennlighet og viljen din til å tilpasse deg er
nødvendig for at integreringen blir en suksess.
HVOR BOR VERTSFAMILIENE?
Vertsfamiliene bor i området rundt den skolen
du har valgt. Her kommer du raskt i kontakt
med åpne og interessante mennesker. De vil
ønske deg velkommen og hjelpe deg med å bli
kjent med deres levemåte og kultur. Naturligvis
er de også interessert i å få vite alt om deg og
din kultur.
RIKTIG HOLDNING
Vertsfamilien er det viktigste grunnlaget for et
vellykket utvekslingsår. De vil ikke møte deg
som gjest, men som et nytt medlem av sin
familie. For å gjøre dette til en suksess må
du være en fleksibel, ”open minded” person.
På den ene siden er du kanskje redd for at
vertsfamilien ikke oppfyller dine forventninger.
På den andre siden håper også vertsfamilien
at du passer deres forventninger, at du trives
og integreres i familielivet deres og kan nyte et
fantastisk år med dem.
Begge sider er spente, og begge sider er litt
redde - det er normalt. I begynnelsen vil mange
ting være merkelig for deg. Prøver du ditt beste
og deltar i familiens aktiviteter har du sjansen
til å gjøre den nye kulturen og levemåten til din
egen. Dette krever selvfølgelig at du behandler
ditt nye hjem og familie med respekt og
åpenhet.
Kort sagt: Det er opp til deg..
HVILKEN MOTIVASJON HAR
VERTSFAMILIER?
Vertsfamilier åpner sitt hjem for en utenlandsk
elev av mange grunner. Ofte er familiene stolte
av sitt eget land, og ønsker å vise andre unge
mennesker deres levemåte. De viser seg best
fram ved å åpne huset sitt og la deg delta i
deres daglige liv. Vertsfamiliene i Canada og
New Zealand vil få en månedlig økonomisk
støtte.
HVORDAN FINNER VI VERTSFAMILIER?
Vertsfamilier må også søke om å delta i dette
programmet. Søknadsskjemaer må bli fylt ut,
de får besøk og referanser sjekkes. Først etter
disse nøye undersøkelsene får en familie lov til
å ta imot utvekslingselever. Vertsfamilier velges
uten hensyn til hudfarge, religion eller yrke. Det
viktigste er at de er vennlige og omsorgsfulle.
HVEM FÅR HVILKEN VERTSFAMILIE?
Gjennom disse skolevalg programmene vil du
ha en innvirkning på hvilken vertsfamilie du vil
få. Som vi har nevnt tidligere vil dine ønsker og
behov bli tatt hensyn til. Er du f.eks. allergisk
mot husdyr, vil vi passe på at din vertsfamilie
ikke har husdyr hjemme. Eller om du ønsker å
komme til en familie med visse interesser, gjør
vi det vi kan for å finne en familie som passer.
KAN JEG BYTTE VERTSFAMILIE?
Selv i de beste familier kan det forekomme
misforståelser. I slike tilfeller vil vi og skolen
din være der for deg. Sammen med din lokale

kontakt-person vil vi prøve å se hvor problemene
ligger og løse dem. Dersom problemene ikke
kan løses ved samtaler og det er grunner til å
tro at samværet ikke lenger vil fungere, er det
mulig å bytte vertsfamilie. I alle tilfeller er det
viktig at du sier ifra når du har problemer og ikke
trives; ta kontakt så tidlig som mulig. Først når
vi vet om et problem er vi i stand til å hjelpe.

24-timers nødnumre. I tilfelle sykdom eller
ulykke inneholder det også et medisinsk
nødnummer og vår adresse!
STØTTE I VERTSLANDET
Selvsagt er vi ikke bare tilgjengelig når du har
problemer, men også når du vil fortelle oss om
gode erfaringer du har. . Du kan alltid sende oss
en e-post, og du vil få tilgang på våre e-portkort
som vi håper at du sender oss med jevne
mellomrom.
Ved problemer eller spørsmål er det best å ta
kontakt med din lokale kontaktperson først.
Han eller hun kjenner vertsfamilien og skolen,
og vil kunne hjelpe deg best.
Sist men ikke minst, er også våre ansatte med
sin erfaring og støtte der for deg. Du er i trygge
hender.
Du mottar ditt personlige ”into Identity Card”

EN UTVEKSLINGSELEV?
UTVEKSLINGSELEV!
Hvert år vil unge mennesker fra
verden rundt se og oppleve landet
vårt. Våre studenter kommer i stor
grad fra våre kolleger i andre intoland, men også USA og Canada.
Elevene kommer til Norge for enten
et semester eller et helt skoleår for
å bli kjent med vår kultur og vårt liv.
For disse elevene søker vi hyggelige,
imøtekommende vertsfamilier.
Hvis familien din ønsker å ta imot
en utenlandsk elev, kan du fylle
ut kupongen og sende det til oss.
Merk: Dette er ikke en betingelse
for å bli akseptert i våre programmer.
Vi ser frem til å høre fra deg!

ORIENTATION CAMPS
Alle elever som reiser til Canada eller New
Zealand vil delta på en 4 dagers Orientation
Camp i enten Toronto eller Auckland. Elevene
vil fly sammen fra Norge til Toronto/Auckland
hvor de vil bli møtt av en into-leder. Våre
Orientation Camps er til for into-deltakere fra
andre europeiske land, og du blir derfor ikke
kun sammen med elever fra ditt eget land.
Du blir en del av en internasjonal gruppe, og
hovedspråket blir derfor engelsk. Mange tips og
informasjon vil helt sikkert gjøre overgangen til
den nye “way of life“ enklere. I tillegg vil intoteamet følge deg opp “døgnet rundt“.
Alle våre camper er inkludert i prisen og en
fantastisk start på din nye opplevelse. Gled deg
sammen med oss til spennende, informative
og uforglemmelige dager.
Deltakelse på Orientation Camp er kun mulig for
elever som begynner sitt utvekslingsprogram
på sommeren/høsten.
ORIENTATION CAMP TORONTO
Våre canadiske elever vil få en 4-dagers
orientation camp i Toronto hvor du kan
akklimatisere deg til canadisk tid. Om morgen
vil du delta på workshops om det canadiske livet
og vårt program i Canada. På ettermiddagen vil
du dra på sightseeing. Det er mye å oppleve
i Toronto om sommeren: Musikkfestivaler,
markeder og mye underholdning på gatene.
Våre shoppingfans vil ikke bli skuffet over de
store kjøpesentrene og markedene.
ORIENTATION CAMP AUCKLAND
Våre New Zealand elever kan se frem til å besøke
Auckland, den største byen i New Zealand. For
å gjøre starten på den andre siden av verden
enklere, vil våre “kiwis“ nyte en 5-dagers camp
i Auckland. Her vil du få ditt første inntrykk av
vertslandet, folket, kulturen og det utrolig vakre
landskapet. Du vil bo i hjertet av byen hvor alle
aktiviteter vil starte.
