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. There must be a contact who can speak English available at all times.
Students in Year 9 to Year 12 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. Oz Homestay conducts an annual screening for students at MLC School who are travelling on a student visa and living with either a parent/legal guardian or a homestay family. This screening is a legal requirement to ensure that the student’s accommodation and general welfare are appropriate and safe. An inspection fee of $A350 is charged for this service.
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC). In order to be granted a student visa, all applicants must provide evidence to the Department of Border Protection that the student has OSHC for the duration of their visa.
MLC School is a high achieving academic environment and an Advanced level on the AEAS test is required to be submitted with application.
