I saw an article where was said that 6% of Finnish students live with their parents. On the contrary in Italy almost 80% and in Spain almost 60% of the students live with their parents. This means that when students from these southern Europe countries go to exchange they can live first time without their parents. Exchange year helps them to be much more independent and many of them have discovered that it is great to be independent.

Exchange year has a reputation of a party year. I think that chance to live without parents makes people more wild. Other reason is that all the universities do not recognize all the studies of the exchange year therefore exchange students are less motivated to complete courses.
