Conditions of Enrolment - Overseas Students

Enrolment Entry Levels and Procedures

Accommodation and Welfare

Entry points for overseas students are from Kindergarten to Year 11 where vacancies exist.
Students from Kindergarten to Year 8 must reside with their parents in Australia. Where students in Year 9 to Year 12 are not in the care of a parent while living in Australia, the parent must provide, in writing, the nomination of a guardian who is over the age of 25 years and who will take guardianship responsibilities according to the MLC School Guardian Agreement.

These students have two options for residential arrangements:

1) Students may reside with a Department of Immigration and Citizenship (DIAC) approved suitable relative who is over the age of 25 years and is of good character. These relatives are limited to a grandparent, brother, sister, aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, step-grandparent, step-brother, step-sister, step-uncle, step-aunt, step-niece, step-nephew;


2) Students may reside in an approved Homestay with a responsible adult who is over the age of 25 years and is of good character. The accommodation must be within a reasonable travelling time to the school. The school must approve the accommodation, support and welfare arrangements for a student from Year 9 to Year 12 in Homestay, who is not in the care of a parent(s) or suitable relative. MLC School reserves the right to inspect the accommodation to ensure that it is safe and suitable and in the best interests of the student.

Health Cover

Evidence of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) must be supplied. In the event that it is not supplied, the school will arrange the appropriate OSHC and the cost will be added to the final enrolment fees.

Language Requirements

All Overseas Students must complete and submit the results of an Australian Education Assessment Service (AEAS) Assessment with the application form before the offer of a place is made. Results of the AEAS Assessment will indicate the approximate duration of English Language Intensive Courses for Overseas Students (ELICOS) preparation before commencement of formal studies at MLC School.

An interview at the school with the student, parents and/or nominated guardian (if the student’s parents are living overseas) is required before enrolment is finalised. Finally, language assessment tests administered by MLC School will determine whether the student’s English is at an acceptable level to proceed with an offer of enrolment. No confirmed offer will be made until the above procedures are completed.

Enrolment Fees

MLC School’s offer of a place is conditional upon payment of the non-refundable:

  • Enrolment fee of A$3400
  • Overseas Student Levy of A$2000
  • Overseas Student Health Cover

Once this payment is received the Registrar will raise an electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCoE) and Student Welfare letter (for students not living with their parents or a DIAC approved relative) enabling the student to obtain a student visa.
