During the enrolment process, we will advise students on the best choice of courses and appropriate levels for their needs – whether students are planning to undertake further study in Australia or return home having been enriched with English and the experience of living in Australia.

Our IPS are supported by the College coordinator and the strong languages program consisting of English as a Second Language (ESL), Chinese, Japanese, French, German, Italian and Korean. The ACT Education Directorate offers a range of services to support the general wellbeing of students.
