INTERNATIONAL FEE PAYING STUDENTS

International Fee Paying Students

If you are looking for a Perth Government 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.

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.

Intensive English Centre

Melville SHS hosts an Intensive English Centre (IEC), which has a diverse student population of young people from different countries, cultures and language backgrounds. Students who enrol in the IEC have either minimal English or possess beginning or intermediate English language skills. Newly arrived international students can apply to study English in the IEC prior to being integrated into mainstream classes.

The IEC supports students by providing one year of intensive English studies in small classes, that are designed to prepare students for academic achievement in mainstream educational contexts. There are Education Assistants on hand to help teachers and double the number of staff in each classroom.

A full curriculum is delivered whilst providing a supportive learning environment. Included in this 12-month Intensive English Program is participation in all the mandated learning area subjects that are applicable to the Australian Curriculum. We also have strong English as a Second Language (ESL) support in mainstream classes for exiting IEC students.

Enrolment

If you need further assistance on Melville SHS’s international program please call our International Student Coordinator on 6274 1300.

Fees and charges include an extra $1500 per year for English as a Second Language classes as needed. This cost is added to those paid to Tafe International WA (TIWA).

Melville SHS has an additional English as a Second Language stream that continues through school in all year groups, while simultaneously completing the normal high school curriculum. Students can thrive in all subjects and receive extra attention in English in these smaller classes if needed.

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 inquiries should be directed to:
