Entry Requirements +

We welcome all International enquiries, please note our following requirements:

Tintern Grammar will offer places only if International students have gained an acceptable level of proficiency in English, for the year level requested.

This is determined by a test conducted by the Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS), or conducted by iDAT and an interview with the School (supporting evidence may also progress the enrolment).

A copy of a report from Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) or iDAT should be provided with the student’s application form.

For AEAS application requirements, please see the table below. For iDAT entry requirements, students must be classroom ready at all levels.

Tintern Grammar accepts International students from Years 7-11, however an International Student requiring homestay accommodation must be 15 years old at the time of their commencement at the School.

Our preferred level of entry to senior years is Year 9, or Year 10. We sometimes accept students directly into Year 11, however this is subject to sufficient English skills to cope with the curriculum and academic results to support Year 11 entry.

We will only consider applications after receiving original school report documents, a copy of the student’s current passport and evidence of a satisfactory knowledge of English (see above).

A copy of a report from Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) should be provided with the student’s application form.

Every student applying for enrolment at Tintern Grammar will be interviewed. Places are offered subject to the result of the interview, sufficient English for year level study and suitable academic reports or transcripts.

Importantly, an applicant’s attitude, behaviour, willingness to learn and participate in school activities will also be considered. 


English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS)

Tintern may offer a place to a student on the condition that they undertake additional tuition in English (ELICOS) prior to commencing formal academic studies. The following ELICOS Programs are accepted by Tintern as suitable English language preparation programs:

Support and Care

International students who study at Tintern Grammar are provided with a comprehensive support network to ensure they are successful in their studies, feel at home in a new environment, make friends and make the most of all the opportunities available to them at Tintern Grammar.

International Student Co-ordinator +

The International Student Coordinator (ISC) provides support for the welfare and wellbeing of all international students at Tintern Grammar. The ISC has excellent cross-cultural communications skills to help international students make a smooth adjustment to their new environment and provides new student orientation as well as one-on-one consultation.

The ISC works closely with students, families, homestay providers and caregiving support personnel to ensure all appropriate support services are in place and the student’s academic performance is progressing.

Tintern also offers further support for International students including Homework Club and English as an Additional Language (EAL) support.

The ISC works together with the comprehensive Tintern pastoral staff network including Heads of Schools, Year Level Coordinators, Pastoral Mentors, Subject Teachers, Head of Learning Enhancement, Director of Studies, Careers Counsellor, VCE Coordinator, the Chaplain and School Counsellors to ensure our International Students thrive at Tintern Grammar.

Living Arrangements +

An international full fee student can live with a parent living in Australia on a Guardian visa. If this is not possible, parents can nominate a relative over the age of 25 living in Australia, who is approved by both Tintern and the Department of Home Affairs to care for the student.

A student who is not living with their parent/s is required to have an approved arrangement with Tintern Grammar in relation to matters including accommodation and caregiving support for the duration of their study at Tintern Grammar, regardless of age. The School will issue a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare form (CAAW) in this case.

In the absence of a parent or close family relative, all International Students are required to engage our approved agencies that will assist with Homestay and Student Support Services. The Principal or his delegate is responsible for the student’s accommodation, support and general welfare. This requirement is non-negotiable and the families must ensure that arrangements are in place prior to commencement.

Homestay and Local Support +

If a student requires Tintern to issue a Confirmation of Appropriate Accommodation and Welfare document (CAAW) as part of their visa application, they will be required to meet the following conditions for the entire period they are enrolled at the School:

  • The student will be required to stay in homestay accommodation or with a relative (over 25 years of age) approved by Tintern and the Department of Home Affairs, regardless of their age, for the entire period they are enrolled at the School.
  • The student will be required to have an approved local support person appointed by Tintern for the entire period they are enrolled at the School regardless of age. This service is compulsory and not negotiable.

Tintern Grammar will not consider homestay and caregiving arrangements for a student under the age of 15 years old.

Homestay families are carefully selected and approved by the International Student Coordinator and are located within a short distance to the School or with access to convenient transport.

Many international students find their homestay experience rewarding and a valuable way to experience Australian culture and way of life and many remain in contact with their homestay families after they leave school.
