Temporary visas and international students


NSW government schools have been enrolling international students since 1990. Students enrol in many schools, mostly in metropolitan areas. They come from many countries with the main sources being Vietnam, China, Korea, Hong Kong, Cambodia and Germany.

DE International is responsible for the enrolment of international students in NSW government schools and administers the following programs:

International Students Program – Student visa subclass 500P (Schools Sector) holders who enrol in the Graduate Program (Years 7-12), Primary Program (Kindergarten to Year 6) or Study Abroad Program (Years 9-12, 1 Term to 1 Year)

Temporary Residents Program (TRP) – students enrolling on temporary visas, excluding the 500P student visa

Study Tours – short term engagements (in person or virtual, from half a day to 10 weeks) for groups of students or adults with a NSW government school

Secondary Student Exchange – short term enrolments of 1 term to 1 year, based on reciprocity, arranged through registered student exchange organisations ( 500P visa)

International Delegations – high-level visits from overseas ministers and senior officials.

New South Wales schools offer academic excellence in a safe, friendly and welcoming environment. Students acquire high-level English language skills, study a wide range of subjects and develop future-focused capabilities. St Clair High School is a registered DE School that accepts international students.

St Clair High School is a comprehensive secondary school located in Sydney's western suburbs. The St Clair High School community is culturally and linguistically diverse. Whilst 38% of students have a non-English speaking background, 10% require some level of English as an additional language or dialect support. Nine percent of students identify as having an Aboriginal background.

The school provides a core commitment to its parents/carers that their child is known, valued, and cared for. Establishing itself as a professional learning community, all are learners committed to making a difference to student achievement, promoting teacher learning, initiative, and leadership.

St Clair High School's vision is clear and purposeful where success is valued for 'every student in every classroom'.
