At MLC we welcome students from many different cultures, religions and backgrounds.

Our values both support and celebrate diversity and the global perspectives that each student brings to our community.  We enjoy a reputation for being one of Australia’s most innovative and successful schools and regularly attract students from Asia, the Pacific Islands, North and South America and Europe.  Our international students find MLC to be an enriching and supportive environment and often comment on the atmosphere of belonging that they experience.  

English as an Additional Language

All students who do not have English as their first language are required to sit an English Language Assessment Test provided by the Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS). The enrolment can only be processed after the results of this test have been forwarded to MLC.

MLC has minimum requirements for EAL for secondary school students to proceed with enrolment, please see below:

Year Levels AEAS Score
7-9 71
10-12 80

Student Visa and Overseas Health Cover

After acceptance of a place, MLC will issue the documentation required for students to obtain a student visa and organise overseas student health cover if necessary. This visa will be issued for the length of the course of schooling.

Supporting our International Students

The International Department at MLC comprehensively supports the social, academic and administrative needs of our international students.

All international students have access to a range of support facilities including:

  • MLC's International Student Advisor, who monitors all aspects of student welfare, including academic progress, and provides opportunities for international students to become active members of the College community.
  • MLC Admissions, who help with visa, passport and health insurance matters.
  • MLC Careers Counsellors, who work closely with international students and their teachers in subject choice, career advice and university entrance.
  • The Melbourne Schools Partnership International (MSPI) is a unique alliance between the University of Melbourne and selected schools including MLC. Each year, the Program assists MLC to support our high calibre international students.

Homestay and Welfare

Many international students studying at MLC have relatives in Melbourne who can assist with accommodation. The most popular forms of accommodation are the MLC Boarding House or homestay arrangements that provide a welcoming home life and appropriate levels of adult care and supervision. Please contact MLC Admissions for suitable homestay coordination.

The College requires each international student to have a Local Support Person to represent the family while the student is studying in Melbourne, and to provide personal and practical support away from the College. The Local Support Person is appointed by the parents and is preferably known to them. The Local Support Person is expected to take a personal interest in all aspects of the student's welfare. If a problem arises, the Local Support Person is the first point of contact. For this reason, we ask that the Local Support Person be over 21 years of age and be comfortable conversing in English. Where families are unable to nominate a suitable Local Support Person, the College can recommend professional companies if requested.

Parents receive regular reports on academic progress, welfare and other matters, and regular contact with students’ Local Support Person is maintained.

There are many questions you may have and we encourage you to read our Prospectus and contact MLC Admissions at or on +61 3 9274 6316. MLC Admissions can help you with visa, passport and health insurance matters.
