Whilst exchanges can occur between any two countries in which there are Rotary clubs, in practice Australia maintains exchanges with about thirty countries.
Not all districts exchange with the same group of countries and options may change from year to year.
The district 9600 committee decides the final country of destination.
The student has the opportunity to nominate a preferred country of exchange available to that district. However, as there are limited places in any one country, a preparedness to accept an exchange in any of the other available countries is necessary.
