Program rules and conditions of exchange

As this is a structured and organized programme under the auspices of Rotary International, specific rules apply to all students who are selected to participate. These rules are there to ensure the safety and well being of the student while abroad. The rules discussed may vary somewhat, but the "6 Dís" apply to all students coming to or departing from our District. The ď6 DísĒ are the six most important Rotary exchange rules, and among the exchange students it's a must to not break these rules during the exchange year:
