My name is Eliane, known as Eli. I was born in Sorocaba, in the interior of Sao Paulo. When I was 16, I decided to travel to Oceania, and visited for the first time the amazing New Zealand on a six-month exchange program. Since then, my connection with that country has become so strong that, eight years later, I was hired to work at the number one agency specialising in exchange programs to Australia and New Zealand - WEST 1!

Today, I am part of the team at WEST 1 Campinas, and now I share my experience with students, offering the best educational consulting services that they need, when visiting one of these wonderful countries.

Our team is ready to help you.

Alexandre AlmeidaEducational Consultant


Hey, mate!

I’m called Alexandre, but you can call me Alex. During my bachelor’s degree studies, I had the opportunity to go study abroad on a government’s scholarship. So I started researching and talking with friends, in order to find the best country for me, and it didn’t take me long to choose Australia, between 15 other countries I could have chosen. So my journey started in the Australian Continent, where I had the opportunity to study at University of Queensland for one and a half year. In addition, I had the opportunity to live in Sydney for 2 months, where I worked as an intern on a multinational company.

Well, you must think I didn’t have the time to do anything else, and you couldn’t be more wrong. On the first months, I had already bought a car, who rode with me for more than 20.000km all around Australia! That and my planned trips to Tasmania and New Zealand were for sure the highlights of my exchange period. I cannot count how many places I’ve been and how many friends I’ve made. There is no way I can put on words all that this exchange did to my life. Now I’m working at WEST 1 as an Educational Consultant, where I will apply all this experience to help you find a great place to live and the school that suits you best, and for that to happen, I must first know you better. I’m waiting for your contact so I can help you plan even the smallest of the details on this beautiful dream of yours. Sincerely, I hope that Australia can do for you all that it has done for me!!!

See ya!
