  • submit an application form
  • attach the requested documentation, including a copy of the childs current Australian visa and passport details, to the application form

  • be accepted for enrolment by the school.

Application process

The type of application form and process undertaken to enrol an international student in a Victorian government school is largely dependant upon the type of visa the student will hold during their stay in Australia.
