Victoria is a safe, friendly and welcoming study destination, offering students an enviable lifestyle that nurtures success and the confidence to take steps forward in life. Victoria’s leading school education system, classroom facilities, welfare support and English language centres make Victoria one of the world’s best education destinations.

Victorian primary and secondary studies are structured so that each calendar year represents the completion of a year level of study (40 weeks). The school year starts late January/ early February. The school year is divided into two Semesters (four Terms). 

The holiday breaks occur between Term 1 and Term 2 (usually 2 weeks), Term 2 and Term 3 (usually 3 weeks) and Term 3 and Term 4 (usually 2 weeks). Please refer to our Term Dates on our website.

Students studying in Year 9 are usually about 15 years of age and students studying Year 12 are usually 17 or 18 years of age. Year 12 is the last year of secondary school and is designed to prepare students for university or other tertiary education. Entry to tertiary courses is dependent upon the score the students achieve in their VCE (Victorian Certificate of Education). Mentone Grammar welcomes international students in Years 9-12.

In Victoria the highest qualification a student can obtain from secondary school is VCE. To qualify, students must study for a minimum of two years (Years 11 and 12) and pass at least 5 subjects throughout that two year course. English is the only compulsory subject (At Mentone Grammar all international students must study English as an Additional Language (EAL).

In some instances, students may be eligible for credits for semester units completed in their home countries. You should ask your education agent or us about this. For VCE level courses (Year 11 and Year 12) you may refer to directly to the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment at www.vcaa.vic.edu.au.

Some students elect to study Vocational Education and Training, (VET) courses. VCE VET courses have equal status with other VCE studies. All VET courses are nationally accredited and give specialised skills and knowledge useful for specific courses or occupations.

Studying a unit 3 and 4 subject in Year 11:

Making the academic transition from Year 10 to a Units 3/4 subject is a big step. Not all students are mature enough, both emotionally and academically, in Year 11 to successfully study Units ¾ concepts and subject matter. Each VCE subject is designed to provide a two-year program. Units 1 and 2 are nationally and internationally benchmarked to a Year 11 standard. Similarly, Units 3 and 4 are benchmarked to a Year 12 standard. Students will generally be better prepared to study Units 3 and 4 by first studying Units 1 and 2 in Year 11.Studying a Units 3 and 4 and subject in Year 11 may mean that an uneven distribution of time is spent on one subject, resulting in a neglect of all other subjects where the important fundamentals of these subjects are taught and learnt in preparation for Year 12.

Applying to study a units ¾ subject in Year 11:

Students may apply to study one Units 3/4 subject in Year 11. Students who wish to apply to study a Units 3/4 subject in Year 11 must complete an application form and have it signed by a parent/ guardian and their House Coordinator. Completed application forms must be submitted to the Head of Teaching and Learning by the end of Term 3. Approval for students wishing to study Units 3/4 during Year 11 will be the decision of the Head of Teaching and Learning. In every instance, the decision will be based on the best interests of the student.

Minimum Requirements

Students who apply to study a Units 3/4 subject in Year 11 must meet the following minimum requirements by the end of Year 10: 

  • A minimum grade average of B for all Year 10 subjects.
  • A minimum grade of B+ in the precursor subject. Where the student has not met the minimum requirements, the student will be asked to reconsider their subject choices for the following year. The decision of the Head of Teaching and Learning will be final.
Offered modes of study

Students are required to attend Mentone Grammar’s course(s) face-to-face in school facilities on campus (63 Venice Street Mentone Victoria 3193). Mentone Grammar uses a wide range of teaching and assessment methods. Depending on course components, a student’s course may also include:

  • Online learning in class time or after school hours.
  • Approved excursions or field trips.
  • Approved work experience program.
  • Outdoor education activities.
  • Approved studies that contribute to a student’s enrolled course but are delivered by another approved provider.

To be eligible for a place at Mentone Grammar in Years 9 - 11, an international student must show documented evidence of good grades in academic subjects studied in the previous school(s).  English competence must be at an appropriate level prior to enrolment. Additional school based testing in Mathematics and English maybe required.

It should be noted that Mentone Grammar will work with international students to ensure success but cannot guarantee that students will:

  • successfully complete their studies.
  • successfully complete their VCE.
  • gain entry into a tertiary institution. 
When should an International Student Apply?

International students entering Years 9 - 11 should take the Australian Education Assessment Services (AEAS) at least 6 - 12 months prior to their anticipated commencement date. This gives them time to plan their English Language Intensive Course for Overseas Students (ELICOS) course to ensure they are ready to commence school at the beginning of the academic year. 

  • International students applying Year 11 entry must start in Term 1.
  • International students Year 10 entry can start in Term 1 - Term 3.
  • International students for Year 9 entry can start Term 1 - Term 4.

As a requirement of the student’s visa, international students must have health insurance in the form of Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) in place for the duration of their visa (a Department of Immigration and Citizenship requirement), or for their total study period, whichever is longer, before arriving in Australia. The OSHC provides medical and hospital insurance in Australia. A copy of the students OSHC must be supplied to the School prior to the acceptance of a place at Mentone Grammar. 

The cost associated with the OSHC must be met by the applicant’s family. This amount is dependent upon the length of Visa. For further information please visit the Department of Immigration and Border Protection and the Department of Health.

Orientation programs are an important part of the student support program that Mentone Grammar offers to international students. The orientation process should prepare new international students to fully participate in the academic and cocurricular programs offered by the School. It should also provide the students with the necessary information to help a smooth transition.

Students are given information regarding support services available to help them and they meet the staff providing these services. Students also learn about the structure of the School, study courses, expectations, learning goals and outcomes.

The orientation programs organised for all new students to the School. They are based on the year level (campus) of entry and they have a focus on familiarising the new students with the School, its programs, the students at their level and school routines. International students need more intensive and individualised programs to cover many of the aspects of studying not only in a new school but also a new education system and country, often without the support of parents.

International Students aged under 18 (on a CAAW) are provided with an International Student Safety Card at the time of commencement in order to ensure that the student can contact responsible persons in the event of an emergency.

There are a range of student support and welfare-related services available from the School at no additional cost. If a referral is made from the School to an external provider this referral will occur at no additional cost to the student.

Our Enrolments Team is here to provide you with all the information you need to make the right choice for your family and assist you with the process, so please don’t hesitate to contact us with your questions or for more information on our facilities, programs and Community. We however cannot provide immigration advice.

Promoting Australia’s international education industry

Australia offers a high-quality education experience to overseas students across all sectors, ranging from schools through to English language and foundation programs, to vocational education and training and higher education.

By providing a fair and accessible system that supports overseas students, Australia has gained an enviable reputation as a popular study destination. The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) legislation is a robust framework that protects and enhances the experiences of overseas students in Australia.

International education can transform individuals, widening their intellectual horizons, opening them to new ideas and experiences, and extending their friendships. Their experiences, in turn, enrich Australian society and life.

The Australian Government acknowledges and values the contribution of overseas students who come to Australia from all over the world to study, live and work. The social and economic benefits of international education to individuals, institutions and the wider community, both in Australia and abroad, are well documented. In turn, Australia offers overseas students an enriching and high quality learning experience in a diverse cultural environment, helping to prepare them for a rewarding future. Australia’s natural assets, relaxed lifestyle and many tourist attractions make it one of the most appealing destinations in the world.

The benefits of international education and training depend on the quality of the courses and services provided to overseas students, and on public confidence in the integrity and quality of the international education sector.

The reputation and quality of Australia’s courses and international education services underpin long-term benefits for trade and foreign relations and are imperative to growth in trade in education services. The ESOS legislative framework is designed to uphold Australia’s high standards for, and commitment to, international education through a consistent national approach, and to support the integrity of the student visa system.

An overview of the ESOS legislative framework

The Education Services for Overseas Students Act 2000 (ESOS Act) and related legislation are designed to protect the interests of overseas students coming to Australia on student visas. The legislation aims to protect and enhance Australia’s reputation for quality education, to provide tuition protection and support the integrity of the student visa program.

The ESOS legislative framework is complemented by the Migration Act 1958 (Migration Act) and Migration Regulations 1994 (Migration Regulations), the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency Act 2011 (TEQSA Act), the National Vocational Education and Training Regulator Act 2011 (NVETR Act), and state and territory legislation relevant to the education and training of overseas students.

The National Code, its purpose and objectives

Under the ESOS Act, the purpose of the National Code of Practice for Providers of Education and Training to Overseas Students 2018 (National Code 2018) is to set nationally consistent standards and procedures for registered providers and for persons who deliver education services on behalf of registered providers. The National Code supports the effective administration of the ESOS legislative framework by the Commonwealth and state and territory governments.

The National Code 2018 comprises the following:

Standard1          Marketing information and practices: This standard sets out that registered providers must uphold the integrity and reputation of Australia’s education industry by ensuring the marketing of their courses and services is not false or misleading.

Standard 2          Recruitment of an overseas student: This standard sets out that registered providers must recruit responsibly by ensuring students are appropriately qualified for the course for which they seek enrolment, including having the necessary English language proficiency, educational qualifications and work experience. Students must have sufficient information to enable them to make informed decisions about studying with their chosen registered provider in Australia.

Standard 3          Formalisation of enrolment and written agreements: This standard sets out that registered providers must formalise their enrolment of overseas students through written agreements with overseas students. The written agreements protect the rights and set out the responsibilities of each party, as well as the courses and related education services to be provided, tuition and non-tuition fees payable, and refund policies.

Standard 4          Education agents: This standard sets out that registered providers must ensure that their education agents act ethically, honestly and in the best interests of overseas students as well as uphold the reputation of Australia’s international education sector.

Standard 5          Younger overseas students: This standard sets out that registered providers of overseas students aged under 18 must meet legislative or other regulatory requirements relating to child welfare and protection. Registered providers of overseas students aged under 18 must provide the students with emergency contact information and information about how to report actual or alleged abuse. Where the registered provider has taken on responsibility for the approval of welfare arrangements for a student who is under 18 years of age (for the purposes of the Migration Regulations), the registered provider must ensure the arrangements for the younger students are suitable, ongoing and appropriately managed until the student turns 18 years of age.

Standard 6          Overseas student support services: This standard sets out that registered providers must assist overseas students to adjust to study and life in Australia and have appropriate orientation programs that help overseas students to access the information and services they require.

Standard 7         Overseas student transfers: This standard sets out that registered providers must not knowingly enrol an overseas student wishing to transfer from another registered provider’s course prior to the student completing six months of his or her principal course (or for the school sector, until after the first six months of the first registered school sector course), except in certain circumstances.

Standard 8          Overseas student visa requirements: This standard sets out that registered providers must safeguard the integrity of Australia’s migration laws by supporting overseas students to complete their course within the required duration and fulfil their visa requirements for course attendance and course progress. Standard 8 sets flexible provisions to allow online learning while maintaining appropriate standards for overseas students to comply with student visa conditions.

Standard 9          Deferring, suspending or cancelling the overseas student’s enrolment: This standard sets out that registered providers must appropriately manage the enrolment of their overseas students and ensure all necessary information about enrolments has been provided to the relevant government department by maintaining updated information in the Provider Registration and International Student Management System (PRISMS) database.

Standard 10       Complaints and appeals: This standard sets out that registered providers must ensure their overseas students have the right to natural justice protected through access to professional, timely, inexpensive and documented complaints handling and appeals processes.

Standard 11       Additional registration requirements: This standard sets out that registered providers must continue to meet the requirements for CRICOS registration and ensure the ESOS agency for the registered provider approves, and has up-to-date information on, specific aspects of the registered provider’s operations and any registered courses.

Australia’s international education quality assurance process

The ESOS legislative framework is administered by a number of agencies across the Commonwealth and states and territories. Their roles are outlined briefly below.

Australian Government 
Department of Education and Training

The Commonwealth Department of Education and Training is responsible for:

  • the overarching policy development and administration of the ESOS Act and its associated legislative framework, including the Tuition Protection Service (TPS) framework and the management of PRISMS
  • administrating ESOS-related charges for cost recovery
  • final registration or renewal and compliance motioning and enforcement decisions (including suspensions and cancellations as the ESOS agency for schools.

Tuition Protection Service

The TPS is a placement and refund service to assist overseas students whose registered providers are unable to fully deliver their course of study. The TPS ensures overseas students can either:

Department of Immigration and Border Protection

The Department of Immigration and Border Protection (Immigration) is responsible for administration of the student visa program under the Migration Act and associated legislation. The ESOS framework also plays a role in ensuring registered providers uphold the integrity of Australia’s student visa program through their ongoing contact with overseas students during their stay in Australia. Under subsection 19(2) of the ESOS Act, registered providers are required to notify the Commonwealth when overseas students have breached their student visa conditions, such as by failing to maintain satisfactory course attendance or progress. The National Code 2018 sets out the course attendance, progress and completion requirements for overseas students that registered providers must monitor and report on.

State and territory governments

For schools seeking to register to provide courses to overseas students, the state, territory and Commonwealth systems are linked through the ESOS framework. Under ESOS, the designated State authority (DSA) plays a role in ESOS related functions in state and territory jurisdictions for:

The DSA makes recommendations to the Commonwealth Department of Education and Training to register a school as a registered provider, including any conditions on that registration. Some states and territories also have their own legislation relating to education services for overseas students within the relevant jurisdiction, and may use that legislation to take enforcement action against a registered provider where appropriate and necessary.

The effect of the National Code 2018

The National Code 2018 sets standards to ensure education services meet the needs and expectations of overseas students who come to Australia, and satisfy the objectives of the ESOS Act.

The National Code complements the strong quality assurance frameworks used by government agencies to oversee the Australian education system.

ESOS agencies may use information given by providers for other purposes in assessing their registration or compliance under the ESOS Act.

The National Code has legal effect as expressly provided for by the ESOS Act. Therefore, breaches of the National Code by registered providers can result in actions being taken against a registered provider under Division 1A in Part 6 of the ESOS Act, including suspension or cancellation of registration.

Registration Fee:

A non-refundable fee of $200 per child is payable when lodging the online Registration for Enrolment.

Acceptance Fee:

A non-refundable entrance fee of $850 for the first child and $250 for subsequent children is required to enrol each child at Mentone Grammar upon acceptance of a place.
