Like the rest of our students, Fintona’s overseas students have also achieved excellent results allowing them to pursue the career of their choice. Our dedicated staff are available to support students, parents and guardians, to assist with the transition of all new students into the School in every possible way.
Due to our size, we are only able to offer a small number of places for overseas students. An overseas student is a girl who is not an Australian or New Zealand citizen, a permanent resident or a refugee.
Fintona does not engage the services of agents in the enrolments of overseas students.
For further information regarding enrolment of overseas students please refer to the Policies and Terms and Conditions below.
Fintona requires that overseas students who attend the School have attained a suitable level of English proficiency prior to enrolment. Overseas students undertake an AEAS (Australian Educational Assessment Services) test for suitability of English level. Fintona requires international students who are not proficient in English to take an English program when they arrive in Australia.
Students must live with their parents or an approved family member. Fintona does not accept applications from student who require Homestay.
Overseas students must remain at school until the end of term.
