International Full Fee Paying Students

At the School of Languages hundreds of International students each year supplement their study program in their own school with an after-hours language at the School of Languages. Predominantly they enrol in the SACE Background speaker level course of their first language. However, many students also enjoy learning a new language at Year 11 through a two year SACE Beginners course*.

International full fee paying students should discuss their possible enrolment into a language course at School of Languages with the International Student Program Manager in their own school prior to submitting an enrolment form.

*SACE Board eligibility criteria apply.

Please note:

Years 8-10:
The subject charge is to be paid before attending classes.

Years 11-12:
For students studying the language in addition to a full subject load, the subject charges are to be paid before the student attends any classes
