International Students

Based in Perth, Western Australia, St Hilda’s is nestled between the Swan River and Cottesloe Beach in the quiet and leafy suburb of Mosman Park, less than 10km from the Perth CBD. Our location provides an enviable and convenient lifestyle with a timezone of GMT+8.

St Hilda’s is a multicultural community and we welcome students from all around the world. We spark extraordinary futures for our girls and ensure they are future-ready for whatever path they choose to take.

Our results are outstanding and we consistently rank in the Top 10 Schools in Western Australia for ATAR, with girls furthering their studies at some of the best universities around Australia and across the globe.

Unless parents are moving to Perth with the student, all international students must live in our Boarding House, where we provide a nurturing and safe environment for each and every girl.

Enrolment Process

St Hilda’s welcomes expressions of interest from international students.

We recommend that families begin the enrolment process at least two to three years prior to their preferred year of entry.

All international students need to make an appointment to visit St Hilda’s to be interviewed by the Principal and Head of Boarding.

If a formal offer of a place is made, time needs to be allowed for payment of fees and for a Certificate of Enrolment to be issued to obtain a student visa.

St Hilda’s does not require students to sit a standardised English exam, preferring a personal interview with the girl and her family. However, during the interview process, the Dean of Curriculum may set an English test if required. In some cases, we may require that students attend an intensive English course prior to entering St Hilda’s or to undertake a more formal English assessment. St Hilda’s staff will often request a formal English assessment via AEAS (for students overseas) or at Phoenix College in Perth.

St Hilda’s international students come from all over the world including Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand and Hong Kong.

St Hilda’s is governed by the Australian Government  Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000.  Further government information about studying in Australia can be found here.
