WEPisode #6: Molly In Italy





Jump To:


Hey ya’ll, study in the USA with WEP Australia!

We’ve all seen our fair share of American life from watching Netflix, but the real USA is a very different place from Riverdale and Stranger Things. It’s a place of great diversity, where you will meet locals who are patriotic, welcoming and enthusiastic (and who love Australians!).

The school experience in the US is unique – students’ engagement with their school community is next level! Join a club (debating, fashion, cheer, theatre, glee), or get involved in school sports, which Americans take very seriously. Also, make sure you attend Prom or Homecoming!

Just because they speak English in the USA, doesn’t mean that there won’t be a language barrier! Your accent will 100% be a conversation starter – use it and make friends and memories for life. Take the leap and start your own American adventure!


Student Exchange

On a WEP student exchange program to the USA, you could be placed anywhere in this massive country, from a farm to a bustling big city, America’s landscape is as varied as its people!
