Overseas Student Enrolment

MLC School welcomes students from overseas to experience the difference an Australian, and in particular an MLC School, education can make. While we do not offer boarding, our hope is for overseas students to have an enriching, safe and enjoyable high school experience.

It is important for overseas students, and their families, to understand both their rights and responsibilities and we ask that you read and understand the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Framework.

Our Registrar is the person to contact in relation to overseas enrolments.

MLC School is a high achieving academic environment and an Advanced level on the AEAS test is required to be submitted with application. Please note the school does not work with external agents under any circumstances.

As an education provider on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (The Uniting Church in Australia, Property Trust (NSW) CRICOS No. 02328D) we adhere to and comply with the Australian Government Education Services for Overseas Students Act, 2000, and the National Code 2007.
