I was a participant in a student exchange program in Japan

It sounds more formal.

  • I agree this sounds more formal, and add that this kind of formality is appropriate for a cover letter outlining your experience and achievements. To say "I did a student exchange program..." sounds less formal, and is less appropriate in such a letter. It would not be impolite, just more casual than the reader might expect.
