About DE International

We are part of the NSW Department of Education. We advise and coordinate applications for international students to enrol and study at NSW government schools.

We also facilitate study groups to tour our schools. Groups include student groups, professional adult visitors and international delegations. Our programs are listed below. 

International student program

The international student program is for students who intend to graduate from our high schools or enrol in a primary school. This program gives students on student visas the opportunity to study in a NSW government school and students can choose from a range of schools across Sydney and NSW.

Study abroad program

The study abroad program is a short-term study program. Students typically come from Europe or Latin Americas, enrol for a period from 1 term to 1 year, and can gain credit for their studies.

Temporary residents program

The temporary residents program offers children on temporary resident visas the opportunity to study in a NSW government school from kindergarten through to year 12.

Study tours program

The study tours program offers short-term educational experiences for student groups and professional adult visitors. It welcomes groups into our schools so they can gain insights into our educational system as well as interact with local students and teachers. They provide a valuable opportunity to build friendships and share ideas.

Official international delegations

Government officials, from outside Australia, visit Australia to gain insights into our highly regarded education system. We host these official international delegations and can bring them into our schools to learn more. Delegations can contact us directly to discuss requirements.

Secondary student exchange program

The secondary student exchange program is a reciprocal study program for NSW secondary students. This program is a state specific reciprocal program, managed through a registered secondary student exchange organisation. International students enrol as full-time students for a period ranging from 1 term to 1 year.
