Applications are now open for August 2021 programs. Start your application now!

Hey WEP! The first three weeks in Norway have been amazing and I cannot wait to see what the future months hold for me. I am loving school and have made a really nice group of friends. My first day in Norway was a beautiful day and the sun was shining, so my host family took me on the boat and showed me around the fjord and the Opera House and City Hall from the water along with much more. It was truly amazing! Yesterday my friends took me sightseeing around the city. We went to Karl Johans Gate, the Royal Castle and the Opera House. It was so much fun to be able to spend time with a really nice group of girls and to feel so included. Last weekend my host family took me to their cabin in the mountains and we hiked up Skogshorn. It took a fair few hours and it was exhausting but when we got to the top we sat and drank hot chocolate whilst having lunch, it felt so rewarding, especially being able to look out at the beautiful view. My host family have been wonderful. I couldn't be more grateful for everything they have done for me so far. I have loved every moment of my exchange in Norway, I'm already having the time of my life and it hasn't even been a month yet. -Laura, Norway.

The region is famous for its high standard of living (+ amazing views, snowy mountains, fjords). Applications are now open for mid to late-2021 departures! Did you know that Norwegians celebrate the end of the week with Taco Friday or tacofredag? This alone is a pretty fantastic reason to choose Norway for your WEP student exchange, but there are plenty more!


Finland is the #1 happiest country in the world! They can also boast the Northern Lights, more saunas than cars and Santa Claus! We reckon it’s a pretty amazing place to spend your exchange!
