Testimonials

Recensie martin

Martin Weberg (Denmark)

From the first contact I had with 4exchange I felt really good about the organization. I felt like I could trust you and that you were really involved in assisting and guiding me. I loved my time in Cape Town, not only the ethical aspects but also cultural and of course nature. Especially getting to know people from my internship who struggle with drugs, crime records and being homeless was something I will never forget. I joined the first weekend getaway to Hermanus which I enjoyed a lot. It’s a good way to meet other students but also to get to know you from 4exchange better. I’ve met two of the students there where I became very good friends with and will definitely meet again.

My accommodation was in the city center, which was great! I already expected, living with many students, would come with some noise and things being not as clean as you may want. That’s true but you get used to that very easily. The thing I will miss is my daily routine that I developed here, just getting my morning coffee for example.

I have experienced my period here in South Africa as above expectations. My contact with 4exchange went smoothly from day one. I joined 4exchange to Kruger Park which was fantastic. There is quite a bit of organization involved for such a weekend away so it is certainly advisable to join 4exchange! My housemates were undoubtedly one of my highlights here. We really felt like one group and I really liked that there were other nationalities in our accommodation. I also enjoyed that my parents came to visit. It is a lot to process in the beginning; a new internship, a new city, new housemates, etc. It was really nice to be able to share this with them in real life!

Review student 4exchange

Corlaine Vendrig (Netherlands)

I arranged my internship and accommodation through 4exchange. I worked with clients in the streets of Cape Town which can be pretty intense at certain times. Despite that, I have learned a lot from it and I will definitely miss my clients. I lived with 30 people on two floors. This is something you should be aware of because you will always have to adjust a little. The advantage is that there is always someone home to chat with or to do something fun with, this house has really become my family here. It is nice to be able to share your story with your roommates. Certainly with an internship like mine and in an accommodation like this there is always plenty of distraction! I have always had good contact with 4exchange, prior to my visa I always received a quick response to my emails. Once in Cape Town their office was next to our accommodation so I could always walk in for any questions!

Tom Harms (Netherlands)

I had a fantastic time in South Africa! My contact with 4exchange mainly took place when I was already in Cape Town and was looking for another internship. From the moment I decided to end my internship, I was able to talk to another company the next day via 4exchange and the week after that I started there! When something like that happens it's nice that a company such as 4exchange exists and can help you with this! I joined two 4exchange weekends which were great fun and a good way to get to know people! I have not been bored for a second because there is always something to do in Cape Town, I have done what I think most people do in one year in a few months!

Before I had used the services of 4Exchange, I started looking for an internship in South Africa. My wish was to find an internship in the wine industry and for this I had a number of contacts. I soon noticed that it was difficult to maintain contact with South Africa from the Netherlands. That is why I finally reached out to 4Exchange. I had passed on my wishes and needs to them and they almost immediately found my ideal internship! In addition to my internship, 4Exchange helped me with my visa, introduction to my internship location and fellow students. Without 4Exchange I would not have had the time that I have now experienced. Thanks for everything!

Jeff Damen (Netherlands)

I am happy that I have arranged my internship and stay in Cape Town with 4Exchange. Even before I came to South Africa I had a lot of contact with them and they helped me well. In Cape Town I stayed in a large accommodation with many students. It was a perfect location close to restaurants, shops and bars, and the advantage of a large accommodation is that there is always someone at home to chat with. I have made some good friends during this period! I also joined the weekend to Hermanus, this was at the very beginning of my internship period and thanks to this weekend I immediately got to know a lot of people.

Celeste Treur (Netherlands)

I was in a hurry to look for an internship but fortunately I was helped quickly and very well by 4Exchange. Within a week they had arranged my internship and accommodation in Cape Town. I think 4Exchange is a top organization where you are well received not only prior to my internship but also during my stay in Cape Town. I also really enjoyed the student weekends where I also met other students.

Thanks to 4exchange, I finally got the chance to visit Cape Town and learn something as well.

Review 4exchange Ralf

Ralf Schenkelaars (Netherlands)

My South Africa experience was beyond all expectations. All stories about the fantastically beautiful nature, the friendly people and the great tasty food are more than true. It is a country that you close in your heart and never let go. Life in Cape Town has everything to offer; the beach, the mountains, the many good restaurants and all the amenities that make your stay in Cape Town even more pleasant! The question is not whether I will ever come back here, but when.

Partly thanks to 4exchange, I really had a great time in Cape Town. They found an internship that perfectly matched my study, a super suitable home, picked me up from the airport, organized fun students activities and I could always contact them with questions. If you want to work in Cape Town, you can certainly arrange it via 4Exchange, they make the organization really easier and the stay even better!

Review 4exchange Freek

Freek Witjes (Netherlands)

I’ve had a fantastic time in Cape Town. I’ve met so many great new people, enjoyed the nice weather and the fact that I was spending so much time outside. I had a great time with the weekend getaway with 4exchange to Hermanus, the shark cage diving was amazing and it was a great way for me to meet new people. The township tour I went on is also something I will never forget. The contact with 4exchange has been great, it’s nice that you can just go to their office if you have any questions and they helped me really good when I had problems with my car and visa. I chose for an accommodation through 4exchange in Observatory, it’s a smaller accommodation with 5 international roommates what I really enjoyed.

Review 4exchange Lars

Lars Neef (Netherlands)

It took some time for me to adjust when I just got here, there is a big cultural difference, especially when doing a Social Work internship. But after awhile you get adjusted and Cape Town is great. Everything is close by, nature, beaches, Lions Head and much more! I joined three of the weekend getaways with 4exchange and they were all great. Kruger Park was amazing and the trip to Orange River was a dream come true. I’ve chosen for a smaller house in Observatory through 4exchange. We were with 10 students which is still quite a lot, you really learn about yourself being in Cape Town and living with other people.

Gonny Koen (Netherlands)

I loved my time in Cape Town, there is so much to see and do. I rented a room in a house in Observatory, first we were mixed nationalities which was a lot of fun. After a few months we got more Dutch roommates. I joined 4exchange on their Hermanus, Kruger Park and Survival Experience, the last one was my absolute favourite. Being in the outback, sleeping in tents and being able to get up close to the cheetahs was incredible. My contact with 4exchange was great, I had to switch internships during my time here and they were able to arrange this very quickly for me. I will miss everything about my life here, the people, the views, driving around.
