Boarding schools in Australia
Australia- studying in the southern hemisphere
Beaches, mountains, jungle and endless sunshine: Australia not only offers an exceptional diversity as a popular holiday destination, but furthermore provides a broad high school and boarding school sector. Especially the warmth and the Australian casual way of life are inspiring for international students. Other highlights are the breathtaking landscape, the fascinating culture as well as the exciting fauna. No matter if Adelaide, Brisbane, Sydney or the Island of Tasmania - spending some time in Australia will offer your child both the chance to improve his level of English and to gain a profound insight into a foreign culture. Hence, your child will acquire social and intercultural competences and values which he can rely on throughout his life.
Experiencing school in a different world
Our partner institutions in Australia offer short term stays up to six months as well as until graduation. Depending on the individual school students can opt for
- either homestay
- or boarding
Both programmes offer different advantages. While living in a boarding school guarantees close links with peers and provides the opportunity to spend as much time as possible with the latter, staying in a hostfamily delivers an authentic insight into Australian culture and the life of the "Aussie". Every effort is made to match the most appropriate student to a particular family - creating a comfortable and positive experience for everyone.
Each school provides a wide range of activities and sports such as:
- basketball, volleyball and tennis
- swimming, waterpolo, surfing, sailing and kayaking
- Australian football
- debating clubs, theatre and many more
