Enrolment Process for International Students

Walford welcomes applications from international students.

Applications from international students are assessed and considered on the basis of:

  • the number of positions available at the appropriate year level
  • the resources of the School
  • the student’s academic records and English language proficiency level for the proposed course of study
  • English language proficiency is determined by the result of a test undertaken in their country by an approved English Language Assessment organisation.

English Proficiency

International students require an adequate command of English so that they can manage the work in mainstream classes.

A condition of enrolment is that a student undertakes a formal English Language Assessment upon application for admission to Walford. This can be carried out in their country of origin through the Australian Education Assessment Services or another official English assessment organisation.

Students may be required to undertake intensive English language study prior to their entry to mainstream study. Walford will provide parents with details of schools able to offer this service. It is recommended that students reside in the Walford Boarding House while attending intensive English study at another institution.

Walford offers English as a Second Language (ESL) in small class groups in Years 11 and 12. In Years 6-10 students study English in mainstream classes and receive tuition from a specialist teacher who works with individuals or small groups on specific needs.
