Enrolment Process (International Students)
Lourdes Hill College warmly welcomes students from overseas to experience the difference an Australian and, in particular, an LHC education can make. Our hope is for international students to have an enriching, safe and enjoyable high school experience, from enrolment to graduation.
It is important for international students and their families to understand their rights and responsibilities when studying in Australia and we ask that you read and understand the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Framework.
As an education provider on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS), we adhere to and comply with the Australian Government ESOS Act 2000, and the National Code 2018.  Our CRICOS registration number is 00503K.
