In the USA, each school routine is different. School will begin at around 8:00-8:30am and finish at 3:30pm. Students are expected to do between two and four hours of homework every night. When you know which school you will be attending it’s important to research the subjects you may be studying and individual school expectations.
Although you will be speaking English in the USA, you may be surprised at the difference between Australian-English and American-English. Just because you speak the same language, doesn't mean there won't be communication challenges.
The United States is a huge country, covering four different ranges of latitudes. The climate varies across the country greatly, but be prepared for cooler temperatures in January (winter) and warmer weather in August (summer).
Depending on daylight saving and the location of your placement, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane are between 13 to 17 hours ahead of the USA.
For August departures: students must be at least 15 by 20 July.
For January departures: students must be at least 15 by 20 December.
