If you are looking for a school with an outstanding record of success in international student education, you should look no further.
Melville Senior High School students are given the opportunity to gain educational qualifications recognised worldwide. They gain the valuable cultural experience that is so important and necessary in this ever-changing global world. Since our international program began in 1998, we have had many international students graduate and then complete degrees in their areas of interest.
Melville Senior High School was established in 1960 and has a very proud reputation for providing relevant, marketable and top-quality education in our community. We provide a responsive learning environment for all students by enabling the academic, cultural and sporting development of the student within a safe and caring environment. We are centrally located on public transport routes. Our six hectare site lies within a quiet and established suburb with easy and convenient access to the city of Perth.
A strong emphasis is placed on the pastoral care needs of our international students. We understand that homesickness and cultural change can be difficult for students to manage, and it is for this reason that we employ an International Student Coordinator.
Melville SHS hosts an Intensive English Centre, which has a diverse student population with young people from different countries, cultures and language backgrounds. Students who enrol at the IEC have either minimal English or possess beginning or intermediate English language skills. Newly arrived international students can apply to study English at the IEC prior to being integrated into mainstream classes.We also have a strong ESL support in mainstream classes for exiting IEC students.
Currently we have students from Hong Kong, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Malaysia, Indonesia, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailand, Taiwan, China, Korea, Switzerland, Iran, Maldives, Chile and Russia.
All international fee paying student enrolments are organised through Tafe International WA, the international arm of the Western Australian Government’s Department of Education and Training. Initial enquires should be directed to:
