International students join us at Centenary SHS for three, six, nine or the full academic year of twelve months. Students select from the full range of subjects available at that time and study with Australian students in mainstream classes.
The aim of this program is to gain further English proficiency and experience another culture. At the conclusion of their studies a report is issued, detailing subjects studied and grades achieved.
If you are an overseas student who wants the fun and excitement of short-term or long-term study in a foreign country, we can offer:
A wonderful Arts program (Music, Drama, Dance, Art, Film and TV) and Musical Production opportunities
Excellence programs in Mathematics, Science and Performance
Opportunities to take part in many club sports including football and rowing
Subjects you haven’t had a chance to try before, such as Engineering, Hospitality, Digital Solutions, and Dance
Continued development of your home country academic subjects
Opportunities to complete VET Certificates in Active Volunteering, Business and FSK - Skills for Work and Vocational Pathways
