Congratulations! You are well on your way. Here is the step-by-step process of how to successfully become a WEP exchange student*
Applications are assessed at our head office before an informal interview is arranged with a WEP representative in your local area.
Address applications to:
PO BOX 260
Black Rock VIC 3193
Don't forget to ensure that every section is completed and that your application is accompanied by a $500 deposit. **
Your application is sent to the international host organisation. WEP sends you notification of acceptance and the overseas organisation commences the search for your host family and school.
From now on we will be in touch with you on a regular basis and offer tips, advice and information about all program components. At the same time, you learn as much as possible about your host country and language.
You and your parents attend a pre-departure orientation session in Australia.
Information is received about your host family, school and community. If necessary, documentation and assistance to obtain your visa is provided.
You fly out of Australia to begin your adventure!
You and your family receive around the clock emergency support from WEP for the duration of your program.
* Only students enrolled in school in New South Wales, Queensland or Victoria need apply.
** The $500 deposit is fully refundable; in the event that acceptance into the program by WEP Australia is not achieved.
