WEP’s academic exchange programs are designed to fit into the Australian academic schedule and offer students between 15 and 18 years of age the opportunity to live and study overseas for a summer, semester or year and mature. Students also gain confidence, develop self-awareness and return with an increased interest and understanding of the world and international relations.

School Language Assistant Program!
WEP Australia is offering a valuable cultural exchange opportunity to Australian primary and high schools to assist qualified Australian teachers in contemporary linguistic and cultural classroom activities.
Our participants are university students or recent graduates, who intend to pursue a career in education in their home country. This is an amazing opportunity for Australian students to experience a rewarding intercultural exchange and enabling them to have access to a native speaker in and beyond the classroom for a term, semester or even a year!
In return, schools provide our assistants with a stimulating and supportive full-time working environment, an opportunity to gain classroom experience, a reasonable standard of accommodation and meals. For more information, please click here.
‘I have known Guido in my capacity as his supervising teacher during his 10 week stay at Brunswick North Primary School. During this time he was a real asset to our school. Always friendly, enthusiastic and polite. Guido always made a point of introducing himself to staff members and took the time to chat with them and to get to know them. In class he showed initiative and knew where he was needed. The students thoroughly enjoyed his time in the classroom and they really admired him speaking Italian. They rose to the challenge of understanding all of his instructions spoken in Italian and their language skills improved immensely.” Mrs Bruna Centofanti, Languages Coordinator, Brunswick North Primary school, Melbourne.
