ÃÛÌÒÖ±²¥ enrols international students both directly and by one of our preferred Education Agents. Entry into Stuartholme is dependent on each International student having a suitable level of English, so they can manage mainstream curriculum.
International applicants, for whom English is a second language, are required to sit a test administered by AEAS before enrolling at Stuartholme. AEAS test results provide detail regarding the studentâ€™s English language proficiency and their general ability. The AEAS Report will be considered alongside other information provided by the family when reviewing the studentâ€™s application.Â AEAS Testing is available around the world, and students can register online. Alternatively, your agent will be able to assist you with the registration process. A copy of the studentâ€™s AEAS Report must be included with enrolment applications.
For further information about AEAS testing, pleaseÂ Â or emailÂ email@example.com
If the assessment indicates a studentâ€™s proficiency in the use of the English language is insufficient, the School will assist in referring the student to additional English study options at a recognised ELICOS institution/s.
Students must provide evidence of a satisfactory level of academic performance appropriate to the year level requested on theÂ enrolment application.
