International students and temporary visa holders
Information for temporary residents and prospective international students on enrolment in NSW public high schools.
Some public high schools in NSW offer programs for international students.
There are English language requirements for entry into high school.
Students will need to show they’ve met the minimum English levels. If they cannot, they will have to enrol in a NSW government school's Intensive English Centre.
Find out more about programs for overseas students at DE International.
Temporary visa holders
If you’re a parent with a temporary resident visa and want to send your child to a high school in NSW, you may need to pay fees depending on the age of your child.
However, you may be eligible for an exemption or a refund depending on your situation.
Learn more about visa and enrolment requirements at the Temporary Residents Program.
