Living in Sydney
It is recommended that international students familiarise themselves with the International Student Handbook as well as the ESOS Act. This legislation contains and details important information that ensures the quality of their education and protecting their rights in Australia.
Living in Sydney
Sydney is Australia’s largest city and is located on the sunny southeast coast of Australia. It’s also very multicultural with nearly 4 million people from 180 nations, speaking 140 different languages who call Sydney home. Sydney enjoys average maximum temperatures of around 27oC in summer and 15oC in winter. Winter nights can drop to less than 7oC, so you’ll need to rug up a little! Whatever you’re into – sightseeing, arts and entertainment, sport, shopping or eating out, you’ll be spoilt for choice. Visit www.cityofsydney.nsw.gov.au to discover more.
Kenvale College is located in Randwick, a residential suburb of Sydney just 15 minutes drive from Sydney’s CBD. Kenvale is also walking distance from Coogee, one of Sydney’s most beautiful beaches. The area accommodates many students and a large multicultural population. Randwick is a major educational centre, playing host to the University of New South Wales and the Sydney Institute of Technology, Randwick Campus. For more details about relocating to Sydney, visit www.studyinaustralia.gov.au/global/why-australia to discover more.
Starting from 1 February 2018, a single international student requires a minimum of $20,290 to cover living expenses for 12 months of study. In their visa application, students are required by the Department of Home Affairs to declare that they have enough money to pay for travel, tuition, and living expenses for the duration of their stay in Australia.
Students under the age of 18
International students under the age of 18 years must have appropriate accommodation arrangements while in Australia, i.e. living with parent/s, a legal custodian, a relative over 21 who has been nominated by their parent/s or guardian or other accommodation approved by the College.
Thank you for inviting us - we really did appreciate it. I must say I was really impressed by the Briar Ridge team - one of them (… Aiden) did a really great job explaining who they were, what they were about etc., and really took the time to give us the background on the person behind it all (Gwyn Olsen). He'd clearly immersed himself in the project, and I think she'd have been really pleased if she'd seen that. Happy to reach out and tell her so if you think it would help pave the way for future events.
I just wanted to express thanks and congratulations to all at Kenvale for the magnificent lunch provided on Thursday.
I have been to many hatted restaurants this year and can honestly say that they would have struggled to produce such fantastic dishes.
The lunch was a credit to your students and your staff. It would be a privilege to enjoy another visit next year.
Best wishes to your graduating students for success in their career and to your staff to continue to guide students to reach such a high standard.
