Youth For Understanding Australia (YFU) is another great organisation (www.yfu.com.au) offering overseas exchange options for secondary students. YFU offers programs that run from 2 months to 12 months. Students are given their country of choice and programs are offered in over 40 countries.
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.
A number of organisations offer secondary school exchange programs. Students and parents should begin their research by looking carefully at websites and attending information sessions where possible.
