A Comprehensive List of Foreign Exchange Students in Film

Exchanges and students visiting other countries, not visiting from outer space. High school/college/uni - I'll also include films about people before they leave to study abroad, or as they adjust to life back home as they first return. Main storyline or subplot. Pretending to be or dreaming of being a foreign exchange student is good enough for me.

Should probably have watched these films before I left on my exchange.
