STS Foundation

Your Cultural Student Exchange Organization since 1958

STS Foundation believes that intercultural student exchange promotes understanding, respect and goodwill among people of all nations. Students, host families, schools and communities will have an opportunity to learn more about another's culture as they share experiences.

Responsibility, Safety and Quality

More than words, our motto, our lifestyle

The founders of STS, Student Travel Schools, were pioneers in the language travel industry and most likely arranged the very first language course worldwide for school youth. In the summer of 1958 the first STS students went by train from Göteborg in Sweden to Salzburg and Mattsee in Austria. In 2010, STS celebrated its millionth student in presence of M. Magnusson and his family. Today STS is still run by the same family and is established on all continents, with 25 offices and partner organizations all over the world. Our representatives around the world are all driven by the purpose of creating cultural exchange programs of the utmost quality.

Family-minded motivated staff

The STS recipe for success throughout the years

STS offers attractive study and travel options for every secondary student. Many members of our staff have worked within our organization for many years and were even themselves exchange student and / or parent of one. They all possess invaluable knowledge. Through constant training and yearly world meetings, our motivated and competent staff became our first asset. They allow us to offer high quality educational programs throughout the years.

Welcome to STS.
