International education exchange is a growing phenomenon. In 2000, there were an
estimated 1.8 million students studying in countries other than their own. Subsequently,
there has been an increase in research relating to student exchang~ programs,
although much ofthis work remains unpublished and hasfocu~ed~n the /.ssues
surrounding American and European students. Therefore, this article II1vest/
Australian and New Zealand university international exchange programs and consulers
the personal characteristics of students that may influence such rat~s. Over.all,
the findings of this study show that despite greater government!ocus onll1ternatlOnalization
and student exchange opportunities, very few Australian and New Zealand
students participate in student exchange programs. There is a need for future
research to consider the issues surrounding student participation, including personality
and socialfactors influencing the decision-making process and the impact ofthe
