Secondary education
Australia is a popular secondary school destination for overseas students. In addition to offering a
high-quality, internationally recognised education, Australia also provides a safe, comfortable and
multicultural environment. An Australian education aims to provide students with the skills for
future study and employment anywhere in the world.

Courses and qualifications

The International Baccalaureate (IB)

Secondary education student profile

Australia’s secondary schools adhere to
a national curriculum framework, which
is being progressively developed and
implemented in schools to set high national
standards in English, mathematics, science,
history, languages, geography, the arts,
health and physical education, information
and communication technology, civics and
citizenship, economics and business.

The IB Diploma Programme is a two-year
pre-university course for highly motivated
students from 16 to 19 years of age.
Universities around the world recognise
the qualification. There are also programs
for middle years students (aged 11 to 16)
and primary years students (aged three
to 12). The International Baccalaureate
organisation must officially approve schools
before they can offer IB programs. There
are 150 IB-authorised schools in Australia.
For more information, go to www.ibo.org.

Ellen Chen — China

In order to gain accreditation to accept
international students, a school must
provide, or have access to, specialist English
language programs. Across the different
states and territories, the final years of
secondary school have a different name
(see below).
Different schools offer different elective
subjects, class structures and areas of
specialisation. In addition to the subjects
offered, it’s a good idea to research the
school’s focus and extracurricular activities
to help you find the school most suited
to your needs and interests. You can find
further information about senior secondary
qualifications in Australia at
www.aqf.edu.au.
Vocational training in schools
An increasing number of Australian
schools offer Vocational Education and
Training (VET) subjects as part of their
school curriculum. These subjects allow
students to gain practical, work-based skills
while completing their senior secondary
education and are part of Australia’s
commitment to providing a balanced
education that prepares students for life
after secondary school.

Average tuition costs
Secondary school fees for international
students vary widely, from AUD$7800 to
$30,000 at an elite private school.
These figures were sourced from the
Australian Government’s Study in Australia
website in 2015 at
www.studyinaustralia.gov.au. It is
important to check specific tuition costs
with individual schools.
Entry requirements
Entry requirements vary throughout
Australia. The selection process usually
involves consideration of the applicant’s
academic record along with other factors,
which may include sporting achievement
and other extracurricular accomplishments.
Further study
The successful completion of senior
secondary school allows students to apply
for entry to tertiary education, but it does
not guarantee a place. Entry into most
Australian higher education courses is on a
competitive basis for both international and
local students.

When I came to
Wesley College,
the International
Office helped me
to find a homestay
and answered my
questions about
life and school in
Melbourne.
I settled easily into Wesley life, becoming
a member of the International Relations
Club and helping organise different events
at school, such as the International Dinner
and Cultural Diversity Week. At school,
having an English as a Second Language
(ESL) support teacher in economics and
accounting has been very helpful and
enabled me to understand more in class.
Before coming to Wesley I completed an
ELICOS course that assisted in developing
my English language skills, and since being
at Wesley, being immersed in an Englishspeaking environment, my English has
improved even further.
I love Wesley College for quite a few
reasons. There are many activities that
make life interesting. There is sport, drama,
music, art, debating and many more to
choose from. Another activity that is special
is visiting the Yiramalay/Wesley Studio
School in the Kimberley, Western Australia.
I spent three weeks there with Aboriginal
students and experienced a totally new
culture.
During the school term, I live with a
homestay family who have made me feel
very welcome. It is a home away from
home. In addition, living in Melbourne
is really relaxing. I have met people who
come from all over the world and have
been introduced to a variety of cultures.
Studying in Australia is a wonderful
experience, and it has made me more
independent and allowed me to see things
from a different perspective. I highly
recommend it.

Government schooling in Canberra is leading the way in preparing young people for the
opportunities and challenges of life in the 21st century. With one of the best government education
systems in the country, our government school students consistently rate as the best educated
in Australia and among the brightest in the world. An international education in Canberra sets
students apart from their peers and creates pathways to success in whatever direction they choose.

About Us
Canberra — Australia’s capital — is a
safe and beautiful city set around the
magnificent Lake Burley Griffin. A safe and
multicultural city, Canberra is also known
by its official name of the Australian Capital
Territory (ACT). The Canberra region is
respected throughout the world for its
concentration of educational and academic
institutions. Both the Australian National
University (ANU) and University of Canberra
are in the ACT. As a smaller city, Canberra
is able to offer a more personalised service
to international school students.

Student Services
The ACT Government Education and Training
Directorate arranges accommodation for
international students over 15 years old.
Students are placed with Canberra families
— a wonderful way for students to
experience Australian culture and improve
their English. Alternatively, students can stay
with relatives approved by the Department
of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP).
Students under 15 years of age must stay
with a relative approved by DIBP. International
students in Canberra government schools
receive a high level of care.
Each school provides an International
Private Student (IPS) coordinator, and the
ACT Government Education and Training
Directorate provides a dedicated pastoral
care officer who monitors students’ health
and wellbeing.

Advantages of the ACT senior
secondary college system
Students complete Years 11 and 12 of their
schooling at a senior secondary college that
boasts world-class facilities and caters to the
specialised academic, cultural and sporting
needs of senior students. Students are
assessed through continuous school-based
assessment. There are no examinations set
by a central authority for any subject.
ANU Extension
Students in ACT government schools have
access to the ANU Secondary College,
which offers extension programs for gifted

and talented students in maths, physics,
chemistry, biology and some languages.
Introductory English Centres (IECs)
The ACT Government Education and
Training Directorate has specialised English
centres for students who arrive in Canberra
with no, or very limited, English language
skills. Students can attend an English centre
for a few weeks or for several months,
according to their individual needs.
Special interest and study abroad
programs
Canberra has special programs for study
abroad students who are interested in a
unique Australian experience. Students
receive recognition for this study in their
home country. Examples of some units
include surfing, canoeing, scuba diving, rock
climbing, snowboarding and white water
rafting. Study abroad programs may be
extended to enable students to complete
their secondary education in Canberra.
Short-term study tours
Short-term education programs provide
groups or individual school-age visitors
from other countries with the opportunity
to attend school with Australian students
and study English. Students experience the
Australian culture and lifestyle first-hand
at school, whilst building on their English
language skills.
All of these reasons make Australia’s capital
city the perfect place for the overseas
school student to begin their international
education experience.

About Us

Caulfield Grammar School is one of very
few schools in metropolitan Melbourne
(and the only member of the Victorian
Association of Public Schools) to offer
boarding facilities to both girls and boys —
sisters and brothers.

Caulfield Grammar School is a school
with a true international perspective.
The school’s own international campus
in China, its custom of reaching out to
best-practice schools from around the
world to share ideas and, importantly, the
understanding of the valuable exchange
that occurs through inviting international
students to study at Caulfield Grammar
are examples of this. It encourages cultural
diversity and internationalism, and has for
many years allocated places to girls and
boys from overseas.

Families may also wish to consider homestay
arrangements as an alternative to boarding.

Courses
Professional development/specialist
teachers and coaches

As one school with five campuses, Caulfield
Grammar offers a broader range of learning
experiences and resources than is available
at most schools. The shared expertise of a
large group of specialist staff, top-quality
facilities and the support of a large
community network are clear advantages
for students.
Caulfield Grammar has links with
Melbourne’s major universities, providing
students with the opportunity to undertake
first-year university subjects whilst still
attending secondary school.

Student Services
Girls and boys can board at the school’s
Caulfield Campus, where accommodation
is provided for approximately 100 students
from Australia and overseas. The head of
boarding, the deputy head of boarding,
their families and residential staff ensure
that boarders are helped to feel secure in a
supportive and caring environment.

Specialist teachers and coaches operate
in all areas of the learning program.
Teachers are supported by the school’s own
strategic and focused weekly professional
development sessions — an approach
to deliver quality teaching and therefore
quality learning for all students.
VCE from Year 10
Year 10 students at Caulfield Grammar are
able to include in their course of study VCE
units suited to their interests and abilities.
This means in effect that the VCE is spread
over three years rather than two, enabling
students to best tailor their learning for
these three critical senior years.
Learning journeys
At Year 9, a range of holistic, active,
experiential programs are designed to
engage students with real-world learning.
Problem-based learning experiences are
created to suit students’ development.
Learning Journeys involves learning by
doing, and applies skills and concepts learnt

in core subjects to real personal and societal
challenges.
Internationalism
Year 9 students are offered the amazing
opportunity of living and learning in
another country for five weeks, based at
the school’s Nanjing Campus in China.
Internationalism recognises that Caulfield’s
students are members of a growing global
community. Our belief is that the most
effective means of preparing students for
this challenge is through the intensive study
of another culture.

SECONDARY EDUCATION

Since 1881, Caulfield Grammar School has been shaping the future of young women and men by
providing education of renowned excellence. It is recognised as one of Australia’s most influential
independent, coeducational day and boarding schools.

Earth studies
Historically, the Yarra Junction Campus
(or YJ, as it is affectionately known)
has always been the site for education
outdoors, adventure activities and farm
studies (the campus includes a commercial
dairy farm), but in more recent times the
campus has also become an exemplar of
sustainable living. The Earth Studies Centre
and the students’ eco-cabins are powered
by renewable resources, and learning
activities explore students’ impact on their
environment.
Learning mentors
Caulfield Grammar School has introduced
an extra teacher to every Year 7 and
Year 8 class. Each girl and boy now has a
learning mentor who closely monitors and
supports them in their academic and social
development. That means two qualified
teachers in core classes — a subject
specialist and a learning mentor.

Vocational Education and Training (VET)
Thousands of courses are available through the VET sector in Australia. Qualifications gained at VET
level can lead to a variety of diverse and exciting careers.
Who offers VET?

level. Advanced diplomas vary in length
from 1.5 to two years of full-time study.

VET courses are primarily offered by
Registered Training Organisations (RTOs).
These may include Technical and Further
Education (TAFE) institutes (see page 75)
and private colleges. Some universities and
secondary schools also offer VET courses.
Each Australian state and territory authority
registers RTOs to:
• provide quality training
• deliver courses developed with industry
• issue nationally recognised qualifications.
You can find a list of registered RTOs at
www.myskills.gov.au. RTOs that
wish to offer courses to international
students must also register with the
federal government’s Commonwealth
Register of Institutions and Courses
for Overseas Students (CRICOS). This
register allows the government to monitor
the education offered to international
students in Australia and ensure that it
is of a consistently high quality. You can
find a list of registered providers at
http://cricos.education.gov.au and more
information about the Educational Services
for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislative
framework that governs CRICOS at
https://internationaleducation.gov.au.

Vocational graduate certificate/
diploma: The vocational graduate
certificate and diploma are the equivalent
of the higher education graduate certificate
and diploma. They provide high-level
employment-related skills and knowledge.
The graduate certificate usually requires six
months to a year of full-time study, while
the graduate diploma is typically completed
over one to two years full time.
English language courses: VET providers
may also offer English language courses
(ELICOS), which range in length from
around four to 48 weeks. For more
information about English language
courses, see page 39.

Higher education pathways

Courses and qualifications
Australian VET courses provide students
with skills that employers have identified
as important in the workplace. VET courses
often provide more practical, work-oriented
skills than the courses offered in the higher
education system.
The VET sector includes the following types
of qualifications:

VET courses at certificate IV, diploma
and advanced diploma level can provide
students with a pathway into the higher
education sector. In addition to providing
assistance with entry requirements, VET
courses can also provide credit towards
some higher education courses. For
example, students who graduate with a
diploma may receive up to two or three
semesters of credit towards a related
bachelor degree. The exact amount of
credit granted depends on the institution,
the degree and the VET qualification
completed. It is important to check
pathways and credit arrangements with
institutions.

Average tuition costs
VET course fees range from AUD$4000 to
$22,000 per year. Higher-level vocational
courses, including vocational graduate
certificates and diplomas, may have higher
fees.

Certificate I to IV: These courses provide
introductory skills and training. They teach
industry-specific knowledge and skills in
communication, literacy and numeracy,
and teamwork. They vary in length from six
months to two years.

These figures were sourced from the
Australian Government’s Study in Australia
website in 2015 at
www.studyinaustralia.gov.au.

Diploma: Diplomas prepare students for
industry, enterprise and paraprofessional
careers. Diplomas typically require one to
two years of full-time study.
Advanced diploma: An advanced diploma
provides a high level of practical skills for
advanced skilled or paraprofessional work in
areas such as accounting, building design or
engineering. Students can complete some
advanced diploma courses at university

Please note that course fees vary widely
depending on the course, institution and
location chosen and should always be
sourced from the relevant provider.

Entry requirements

12. Some courses may have prerequisite
subjects or work experience requirements.
Entry into courses such as art and
design may also require submission of
a portfolio. Students should check with
individual providers for any additional
entry requirements, English language
requirements, information about fees and
charges, and course starting dates.

VET student profile
Andres Kello — Argentina/Brazil/ USA
Studying abroad
in Australia is a
unique experience.
Having lived in five
different countries,
I can immediately
single out Australia
as having one of
the best qualities
of life in the world.
Furthermore, its
education is rigorous and challenging with
a strong international flavour. Unlike in
America, education in Australia is more
focused towards what you are studying,
and your social life is concentrated outside
the institution, allowing you to have a
more balanced and rewarding experience.
It is impossible to single out one best thing
about studying in Australia because there
are simply too many. The ones that come
to mind are the depth of the education,
personal growth, friendships and the
cultural awareness. What I liked most about
living and studying in Australia was the
independence I felt. Teachers don’t harass
you about doing your homework or going
to class. It is understood that it is up to you
to do it and is in your own best interest. In
Sydney, the lifestyle is a very independent
one that allows for a lot of personal growth
along with the opportunity to meet a lot
of different people and make many new
friends from all across the globe. Take
advantage of everything Australia offers
and you will have a memorable experience
that will serve you your entire life.
Visit www.StudiesInAustralia.com
for in-depth information about courses,
institutions and scholarships.

Entry into VET courses usually requires
students to have reached a level of study
equivalent to Australian Year 10, 11 or
