International Students

Mackellar Girls Campus welcomes International students from Europe, China, Japan, Korea and many other Asian countries.

This school is proud of its position as the exemplar school for girls' education on the Northern Beaches. We are also proud of all the International Students who have studied at this campus and who have gained excellent results in the Higher School Certificate and outstanding ATARs (Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank). International Students who have graduated from Mackellar Girls Campus have gained entry to many high level University courses which have included Medicine, Science, Commerce, Business, Law, Arts and others.

We offer students many opportunities to excel in their academic subjects and to participate in the school's many extra-curricula activities. These opportunities include extra tutoring where required, individual career advice, support to study their own language and individual welfare support.

Mackellar Girls Campus provides a safe and supportive environment to all International Students.

The enrolment process for International Students involves a lengthy interview with the student and her guardian. During this interview the student's subject choices and their pathway to University is carefully discussed and students are guided by our professional staff which includes Head Teachers of Faculties, Deputy Principals and Careers Advisers.

Students also participate in an Orientation program where the school's procedures, International Students' Centre requirements and DIAC regulations are explained. Students are provided with two booklets which provide information regarding the school's procedures and services available in the community. Students are also provided with an extract from the ESOS legislation which explains carefully their rights and responsibilities.

This School has a strong emphasis on student welfare. International Students have their own co-ordinator whom they meet weekly. In addition, the school's Head Teacher Welfare, their ESL teacher, their Year Advisers and their supervising Deputy Principal are all concerned with your daughter's academic success and her personal welfare.

This school is committed to ensuring that International Students are supported in their academic studies and are provided with every opportunity for outstanding success.

Mackellar Girls Campus is situated at Manly Vale on the spectacular Northern Beaches of Sydney. The area has many attractions and students will be able to experience one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Close to the city CBD, the beaches and Harbour, with good transport links by bus and ferry, the location adds an extra dimension to the study experience at Mackellar.

Further information on the enrolment process can be found on the International Student Centre website.
