The International Program at Kurnai College provides high quality education for international students. This is done in an environment designed specifically for senior students. Kurnai College’s senior campus is built within the grounds of Federation University’s Gippsland Campus; there are no distractions from junior students. Kurnai College students have access to university services such as the student union and cafeteria, the library and sporting facilities. Federation University students are also available to coach Kurnai College students free of charge.

If you are required to do a language program before beginning your Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) studies this can also be done at Kurnai College’s Language Centre. There is no need to start your studies at one school and then change school (and sometimes living arrangements) to finish your VCE. The Language Centre and its qualified staff ensure that new students get the appropriate grounding in English while meeting and working with the students who will be their classmates in the future. If necessary, further support in English is available for students after they have completed their language program.

At Kurnai College, we understand that while a high quality education is important when choosing a school, it is also important that you are in an environment where you feel safe and supported. The school is located in an area used to catering for international students. There are also College staff who speak Mandarin and Japanese. These staff assit with everyday needs, act as a link between the student and their teachers, and can speak directly to parents about progress. They also understand the cultural needs of international students and can help them make the shift from home to living and studying in Australia.
