Develop your English for study at an Australian high school
High School Preparation is a specialised program for international students aged between 13 and 18 years entering an Australian secondary school.
Our High School Preparation program aims to improve your:
- English language skills
- subject-specific knowledge
- academic skills
- cultural awareness.
It provides a well-rounded learning experience to prepare you for the high school environment and also to connect with the wider community.
Your tuition fees will vary depending on the number of weeks you are enrolled. Additional costs include your uniform, and sports or activities costs if they are part of the class hours.
Classes start every five weeks. You generally need to study for a minimum of 20 weeks, depending on your current level of English and the level required by your chosen high school.
HEAR FROM OUR STUDENTS
HSP provides lots of opportunities for students to communicate in English and practise listening and speaking skills. It also gave me access to all the university resources and facilities, which assist my learning process. HSP improved my confidence and my English literacy, which helped me achieve an OP1 in my high school and get accepted into medicine.
