Study tours provide a unique insight into schools and education in NSW. Our schools will welcome you into their safe and friendly community where you can participate in classes, excursions and special events.
Study tours offer groups of overseas students and adults a unique educational experience that includes visiting schools, participating in classes, excursions and special events conducted in the school or local community.
Study tours are tailored to the interests and needs of each group.

DEC International has a worldwide network of representative agents who can help you complete and submit your application to study.
These representatives must provide you with accurate and up-to date information and advice regarding programs, courses, application procedures, living and studying in Australia. They can also assist with your visa application. If you wish to apply through an agent it is recommended that you use an agent on this list. If you choose to use another agent who is not published on this list, then DEC International is not responsible for the accuracy of the advice provided to you.
