Korowa welcomes students from diverse backgrounds and cultures.

Our international students find Korowa to be a warm and welcoming School, a School that values courage, respect, integrity and service. International students participate in all aspects of the School and leave Korowa with a more global perspective.

As there are usually more applications than available places, we encourage interested students to submit their applications at least one year prior to the proposed entry date. We offer a limited number of places to international girls each year from Year 7.

Parents accept the offer by:

  • Submitting the completed Enrolment Agreement and Acceptance Form
  • Paying the fees as outlined in the Enrolment Offer and Enrolment Agreement, this includes first semester’s fees and enrolment fee.

The Electronic Confirmation of Enrolment will be issued to the Education Agent to finalise the visa application once we have received evidence of the following:

Step 4 – Prior to Commencement

Students undertake the required duration of English tuition as determined by the AEAS result. Students may sit a School English proficiency test as part of the Transition Program. Upon meeting the required level of English competency, as detailed in the Enrolment Offer and Student Agreement, the student will commence in the next available intake.

Accommodation & Guardian

Year 7 and Year 8 students should be accompanied by a parent who holds a guardian visa in Australia.

Accommodation

Unless the student is living with a parent, a relative or a guardian approved by Department of Home Affairs (DHA), it is expected that all International Students will reside in homestay arrangements which have been approved by Korowa.

Homestay may be arranged through Student Accommodation Services (SAS) directly by the student or Agent.
