for teachers

We send high school students to over 10 countries for short term, semester and year-long programs. While on exchange, students attend school full-time and live with a volunteer host family. WEP’s academic exchange programs are designed to fit into the Australian academic schedule and offer students between 14 and 18 years of age the opportunity to immerse themselves into a new culture. Students gain confidence, develop self-awareness and return with an increased interest and understanding of the world.

For almost a century, student exchange programs have produced innovators, leaders and influential people across all sectors. Exchange students develop sophisticated ways of looking at the world, respect for other cultures, sensitivity to different cultural, political and economic systems and mindfulness towards the welfare of the planet and its people.


WEP visits schools all over the ACT, QLD, NSW, SA, TAS and VIC to chat to students about their student exchange options. As many students are unaware of student exchange and its benefits, we aim to answer the following questions:

  • What is student exchange?
  • What are the benefits of student exchange?
  • What is the importance of learning a second language?
  • What does it mean to attend school overseas and live with a host family?
  • Student exchange and COVID-19.
