English Proficiency

Student wellbeing is our first prior when making decisions about entry into the School. Perth College requires a satisfactory level of proficiency in English before enrolling at the School, to ensure an adequate understanding of the language prior to commencing mainstream classes. We provide EAL/D classes across Years 7 to 12, however, the School does not have an intensive language centre.

As part of the application process, overseas applicants must sit an entrance test administered by Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS), which can often be done in your home country. The results of this test should be included with your application. A place at the School is conditional on reaching the required standard prior to enrolment.

The School may make a conditional offer based on the successful completion of an intensive English program prior to commencing at Perth College.
