The education systems in Australia and their schools are amongst the best in the world with world class internationally recognised university entrance qualifications. Our schools offer international students an excellent safe and academic environment in which to study. Our education systems encourage student centred learning activities with teachers helping students to develop their knowledge and skills rather than “instructing: students with information to be learned by rote.

Students have a wide choice of schools ranging from coeducational schools to single gender boys or girls only schools and a range of programs with specialist high schools in some areas in performing and creative arts and sports.

Australia is a very safe country with friendly people who make international students welcome. Australian families generally enjoy an outdoor life style. International students in high school may choose with live with a parent or close relative or with a homestay family from within the school community which been screened and background checked by the school in accordance with the Australian Government Schools International Homestay Standards.

The schools arrange homestay families and payments to them. Other costs include the cost of insurance, school uniforms, course materials and field trips.
