Accommodation and Welfare Arrangements
Regulation requires international students under 18 years of age to live with a parent or approved guardian or carer. Alternatively, students may live at approved homestay accommodation. The team at Prescott College want to ensure that you have a safe and conducive environment to live in while you study with us.
The Australian academic school year consists of two semesters with two terms in each semester.
Full fee paying overseas students are expected to pay one semester’s tuition two weeks prior to the commencement of each semester. Please contact Julie Imbrogno (International Enrolments Officer) at Prescott College for this year’s International fees.

Student Visa and Health Cover
Prescott College will provide students with a Confirmation of Enrolment which will assist you in the process of applying for a student visa. All international students studying on student visas must have Overseas Health Cover (OSHC), which is insurance that provides cover for the costs of medical and hospital care which international students may need while in Australia.
International students are responsible for organising their own student visas and health cover.
English Language Support
On arrival in Australia some students may benefit from English Language support. Students who need such support will be offered English support classes alongside the mainstream English curriculum to help them achieve high proficiency.
