So, you’ve decided to go on exchange and want to apply? Great! You’ve come to the right place.
To start your application please complete and submit the PRE- APPLICATION form below.
Please note the form below is only the pre-application form.
The actual application process is quite comprehensive and takes time to complete (sometimes around 3 weeks). All applications must be fully lodged and completed prior to the application deadline. You can view the application deadlines here.
- You will receive an email confirming your pre-application and our bank details for the pre-application fee due of $100.
- Within three business days of receiving your pre-application form and first payment, you will receive an email with a link to your WEP online application file.
- Complete the online application and submit your $400 deposit payment using the ‘Program Payment Option Form’ on the online application form.
- Once your complete application has been submitted to WEP, we will organise a personal interview, online or face-to-face if permitted, at a date and time suitable to both parties.
A deposit fee of $500 must accompany the application form. This fee is divided into two instalments, the first ($100) on submission of the form below, and the second ($400) on submission of a complete online application. Withdrawal from the program, before interview, results in a full refund less $100. Full information regarding Fees, Cancellations and Refunds is available here, and with the online application.
We understand that you may have concerns with respect to the current travel restrictions and how it impacts your WEP student exchange application. We are closely monitoring the situation. Our programs will resume once fully permitted by the Department of Home Affairs, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT), our state regulating authorities and local authorities in host countries.
As per WEP’s Fees, Cancellations and Refunds terms (available here), should WEP Australia cancel a student exchange program prior to the scheduled departure, an alternative program will be offered or a full refund.
Please note that final acceptance on our program will be pending on the applicant abiding by all requirements set by the Australian Authorities, the Authorities and our partner organisation in the country selected for the exchange program (provision of immunisation records, agreement to quarantine & cover any related cost, any other requirement related to the global pandemic).
