International Enrolments

We welcome diversity and encourage the interaction and the benefits that come from having a student and parent base that is international in its make up and its inclination.

Redlands welcomes students from all countries and cultures. Many international students study at the school because of its excellent educational reputation, its coeducational learning environment and its excellent results in the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme.

The current school population of approximately 1700 students spans Early Childhood to Year 12. Approximately 83% are local students and 17% originate from overseas. Over 30 countries of birth are represented in the total school population.

International Relocations (Business/Temporary Resident Visas)

Redlands welcomes children of expatriates on assignment in Sydney. The average enrolment period for these students is between two and five years. Whilst the school does not hold specific positions open for international transfers every effort will be made to assist families where possible.

The Australian school year commences in late January and concludes in early December. There are four school terms of approximately 10 weeks. Depending on the country of origin, age and academic background of each transferring international student a recommendation will be given as to the most suitable academic group whilst attending Redlands.

Full Fee Paying Overseas Students (Student Visas)

Redlands is registered with the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) to enrol a number of students on student visas for study; such study is predominantly in the Secondary School (Years 9-12).

As Redlands is a day school only, students relocating to Sydney are expected to live with a parent.

Students with limited English skills are required to undertake an independent language assessment to assess their readiness for enrolment at Redlands such as AEAS or IELTS Some students may be required to attend an Intensive English Language Course with an external provider such as The Sydney College of English prior to application. Redlands requires at least Intermediate standard English for Year 7-8 students, high grade Upper Intermediate English for Year 9-10 and Advanced English for Years 11-12.

Allocation of Places

The school does not hold specific positions open for international enrolments; however every effort will be made to assist families where possible. Positions will be allocated in advance of the family relocating to Sydney if available.


All students at Redlands follow NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA) courses of study from Kindergarten to Year 10.
