University entry

As an academic school, we offer international students a safe caring learning environment with a strong focus on student achievement.

International students at Ƶ who successfully complete Year 12 gain a university pathway through the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE).

Many of our successful students go on to tertiary studies usually at Melbourne and Monash Universities.

English Language Centre

An on-site English Language Centre means that students benefit from small group learning with caring English as additional language (EAL) teachers. We have state of the art classroom facilities and adjoining lounge area for our students to use during break times.

Homestays

Our international students stay with carefully chosen families in the local area and their parents are kept well-informed about the progress of their sons and daughters through a regular College newsletter which is sent to all parents.

Education aides

International students also benefit from additional classes and Multicultural Education Aides. International students have ready access in studying their native languages at all year levels.
