International students

Seymour College offers overseas students an outstanding educational experience.

International students

Seymour College welcomes students from all over the world to experience an outstanding education, in Australia’s most livable city.

We offer many opportunities to ensure they complete their education with the best possible academic outcomes and the social confidence to help them continue further study at university.

Offering an onsite English language program provides the girls with a safe and comfortable environment where they can be well prepared in all aspects of English and Western culture, ensuring a quick transition into mainstream classes. Our students can join a homework club to assist them with the completion of assignments and for our Chinese students, there is a Chinese Literature Club to continue developing their skills within their native language.

Seymour College offers a broad selection of subjects to assist students in choosing a pathway that is best suited to their individual interests and areas of strength. Coupled with the support and guidance of our highly experienced staff, every girl is well placed to do their best at Seymour.

The College has a Boarding House where students enjoy a comfortable home life, supported by staff who focus on students’ developing a sense of belonging from the first day they arrive on campus. Academic tutors are available four nights a week to assist with assignments and any questions students may have.

Our Boarding House staff are aware of communicating with families who are overseas and can do so in several ways, including WeChat. We have Chinese speaking staff members who are available to translate for students and parents.

Why study in Adelaide?

For over 170 years Adelaide has had a tradition of education excellence. The city has produced over 100 Rhodes Scholars and three Nobel Laureates.

Accommodation

Seymour College offers Boarding House and homestay accommodation options for overseas students.

The most popular form of accommodation is the on-campus Boarding House, which provides overseas students with additional study assistance in the evening and the opportunity to make friends with other students from all over Australia and the world.

Boarding

Seymour College offers on-campus boarding facilities for overseas students. Life at the Boarding House is a blend of work and leisure. Quiet periods are set aside for homework and study, and the focus is on a relaxing but disciplined environment.

Students boarding at Seymour have access to the College’s many facilities, including the heated swimming pool, playing fields, tennis courts, on-site gym, library and Sports Centre.

Homestay

Seymour has partnered with the Australian Homestay Network (AHN) to provide accredited homestay options that provide overseas students with an opportunity to experience the Australian way of life in a family situation. To find out more or to register, please visit the website of the Australian Homestay Network.

Enrolment procedure

Seymour College will assess the application and assessment procedures including evaluation of reports from previous schools and of English language proficiency.
