World Education Program (WEP) is another organisation well-deserving of consideration. It offers amazing programs for students in Years 9 to 12 in NSW, VIC and QLD. Students are given their country of choice.
With WEP (www.wep.org.au) students can choose from:
- Short programs: 2 – 3 months
- Longer programs: 4 – 6 months (semester), 9 – 10 months (academic year) or 11 – 12 months.
Having the option to go for a shorter length of time may suit more senior students while younger students may be really keen to try a longer program. Many students regret not opting for one of the longer programs as this gives them more time to soak in the culture, to learn a new language and travel around the country and even other nearby countries.
WEP offers information sessions where attendees can meet students who have completed a WEP program. Students and parents can also make an appointment to meet staff at one of the WEP offices in their state.
The website is a fun and informative resource. Make sure you scroll right down to find some inspirational videos, student testimonials and a Photo Gallery that will certainly give you the travel bug!
