International Students

Great Southern Grammar welcomes applications for overseas students to study in Years Seven to Twelve and live in the School's residential accommodation. Most families apply for a student place for one of two reasons:

  • To allow a student to complete his or her schooling in the Australian education system; or
  • To provide the student with a cultural and language experience.

Students whose first language is other than English are required to undertake English language testing by the Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS). Visit for more information. Based on the information from AEAS, the School assesses which year level is appropriate for the student.  


Great Southern Grammar does not engage agents for the purpose of recruiting international students. Any enrolment enquiries in relation to international students should be made directly to the Registrar via +61 8 9844 0300 or


Students enrolled at GSG follow a course of study determined by their age, academic ability and areas of interest. All courses offered at GSG are fully accredited by the School Standards and Curriculum Authority of Western Australia. Students who successfully complete Year Twelve will be issued with a Western Australian Certificate of Education (WACE).

Submitting an Application

An Application Form should be completed and submitted to the school with the A$200.00 application processing fee. The following information (translated into English) is also required:

  • Copy of the student's most recent school report;
  • A supporting statement from the Principal of the student's current school;
  • A copy of the student's passport and birth certificate; and
  • English Language Testing results.

Offer of a Place

When a suitable student place becomes available, a formal offer letter and a Written Agreement detailing the terms and conditions of enrolment is sent. An interview in person, if possible, or by telephone with the student and parent is conducted. Pending the outcome of the interview and the signing of parent and student contracts, an endowment fee invoice is issued. Payment of this fee secures the student's place. GSG then issues the electronic Confirmation of Enrolment (eCOE) form which parents must present to the Department of Immigration and Border Protection to obtain a student visa.
