Overseas students

Overseas students are warmly welcomed at the School. All international students must meet the School's minimum standard for English.

An online Application Form must be completed and submitted, along with payment of the non-refundable Application Fee of $450 for students on an Overseas Student Visa. You will also be required to upload the following support documentation:

  • copies of your child’s three most recent School Reports;
  • a copy of the student’s passport and visa.

Online Application Form

The form will take approximately 15-20 minutes to complete. You can save your progress and return to it at a later date.

To start your application, please click on the Apply Now button below and enter your email address.

You will also need to provide a password and verify your email address by clicking on a link that is sent to you via email before you can start filling out the online application form. The online application form requires an electronic signature from both parents/carers (unless the applicant is from a sole parent/carer family), and an online credit card payment of $450 for students on an Overseas Student Visa, before it is considered to be complete and submitted to the Enrolments Office.

Using your email address, you will be able to save your progress and come back to the application form at a later date to continue if required. Your email address also becomes your username for your SACS enrolment dashboard. Your SACS enrolment dashboard is where you can track progress, update contact details and complete any outstanding tasks related to the enrolment applications such as providing updated documents.

The School will then confirm in writing the status of your child’s application. If places are available, you will be contacted to arrange a formal interview with the Registrar or member of the school’s executive, who will outline the School’s facilities and subjects, and discuss educational matters with your son or daughter.

Prior to this interview, all international students must meet the School’s minimum standard for English. This is achieved by sitting for a special test either in Australia or in your country of origin. For more information, please see English Requirements here. To help with a smooth transition for students into St Andrew’s Cathedral School, we have formed strong relationships with several ELICOS Colleges around Sydney.

If the application is successful, you will receive a formal letter of offer from the Head of School and an Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (ECoE). This ECoE is used to obtain or extend a student visa. The offer will be fully confirmed when the documents are signed and returned with payment of a non-refundable Enrolment Fee of $4000 and Enrolment Bond of $10000. The Enrolment Bond will be credited to you in its entirety, following settlement of the student’s final account.
