Services to assist effective transition to Australia and general student welfare.

Our school understands the importance of services to assist effective transition to Australia and general student welfare, including CRICOS International Students who may be living in Australia unaccompanied by family. ISWA recommends the following accredited service providers:

Australian Homestay Network

Australian Homestay Network (AHN) is Australia’s largest and leading homestay provider, delivering the highest quality homestay accommodation for CRICOS International Students. Read more here: Accommodation Options.

ISA Guardian and Welfare Services

CRICOS International Students can liaise with the independent organisations of ISA Guardian and Welfare Services. ISA specialises in the provision of security, assistance, advice, and advocacy to international students during their study time in Australia. They can act as a liaison for student welfare between AHN, ISWA, and the general community. For additional information click here.

The official Australian Government website for CRICOS international students is here. CRICOS International Students can search for courses, institutions and scholarships, read about studying and living in Australia, watch stories from other students, and learn about Australian education.

Australian Federal Government Study Complaints Support

The official Australian Government agency for CRICOS International Students is Commonwealth Ombudsman. Students can access advocacy and personal support for complaints and appeals about their private education provider from Commonwealth Ombudsman.

What our parents say

Choosing the right school for our children is very important and ISWA has proven to be the right fit for our family. We are impressed by the caring and knowledgeable homeroom teachers our children have had so far, as well as the connection ISWA has with Language One, to keep up with our Dutch language education.
