World Education Program Australia Ltd (WEP Australia) is an independent, incorporated, not-for-profit Australian student exchange organisation registered with the education departments in QLD, NSW and VIC. Formed in 2001 in cooperation with WEP International, (which now has offices in Brussels, Turin, Milan, Lyon, Paris and Rosario), WEP Australia has enabled thousands of students to open a door to a rewarding and successful future through education abroad.
First-hand knowledge of student exchange is a vital ingredient for successful programs. WEP staff have lived and worked overseas, hosted international students, participated in an exchange program or been the parent of an exchange student. This ensures that professional, knowledgeable advice and guidance is available to participants at all times. WEP Australia has strong relationships with reputable international partner organisations all over the world and aims to provide the perfect combination of high-quality program choice and personalised service.
Carleen Wheeler, CEO of WEP Australia, has more than 23 years experience in student exchange. Regarded as a consummate professional, Carleen’s knowledge and insight is regularly sought and highly valued by all. As a result, WEP Australia sets the benchmark for secondary student exchange organisations in Australia.
