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.
‘Languages are deeply intellectual and intensely practical. When you learn a language well you engage in the deepest manifestations of a cultural system.’ Joseph Lo Bianco, March 2008

The professional nature in which WEP employees conducted themselves is to be commended.” Shauna – teacher and mother of student to France 2007
