Please read through the College’s International Students Enrolment Policies and Procedures carefully before applying.

Application Process:

All students that submit an Application for Student Admission Form will be considered for enrolment. Once the College has received the Application for Student Admission Form, the College may contact the family to attend an interview (via Zoom for offshore applications) in which all aspects of the student’s education at St Andrews will be discussed. Following this meeting, and with consideration to the College’s enrolment policy, the family will be advised if the application has been accepted for enrolment. Please advise the College if you change your address or telephone number in the intervening period between sending the Application for Student Admission Form and the interview.

If the College and the family agree that the enrolment should proceed, the College will provide all necessary Offer documentation. To accept the place for the student, parents must make payment of monies as detailed in the Offer documents.

Once the Student Visa has been granted, travel arrangements should be made so that the student arrives in Melbourne several days before the agreed commencement date.

Prior to the commencement date, families will be advised of arrangements for the purchasing of uniforms, subject choices and classes.

English Proficiency Testing:

All students applying from non-English speaking countries are required to sit for an English language proficiency test through one of the following services which have testing centres in many countries.

Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) –

Students may also be tested in any of the Australian State capital cities. A list of these testing centres is available upon application.  If this arrangement is impractical for genuine reasons, then the College may approve another accredited way of testing applicants.
