How to Enrol

Thank you for considering The International School of Western Australia. We are committed to providing an inspiring whole school education that encourages all of our students to excel to their full potential. 

At ISWA, we accept enrolment admissions throughout the school year. The minimum duration of enrolment is ten weeks. If you are considering enrolling your child at ISWA, please contact our Registrar, Megan via email or call her +61 8 9285 1144 to discuss your child’s education further.

Step 1: Apply for a Priority Placement

Families are encouraged to apply for a Priority Placement, which will short-list your family for future enrolment at ISWA. A Priority Placement is not a formal commitment to attend our School. The cost of the Priority Placement application is non-refundable at AUD $110 per child.

Step 2: Visit the School

To experience firsthand the sense of community at ISWA, and see how our learning environment inspires and challenges our students, we encourage you to Book a Tour. We offer monthly group tours, personal tours and/or a student guest pass. International families are invited to participate in virtual tours, one-to-one video calls and phone calls. 

Step 3: Interview

The School enrolment process involves an interview with the Registrar, followed by introductions with teaching staff and our Deputies or Principal. This meeting can be facilitated via one-to-one video calls and phone calls for international families.

Step 4: Offer

It is at the Principal’s and School’s discretion whether a student is accepted or not to enrol at ISWA. Upon the decision to offer your child a place at our school, our Registrar will send you a full Enrolment Package.

Step 5: Complete the Enrolment Package

The Enrolment Package consists of online forms which are required to be submitted together with copies of your child’s:

  • Passport
  • Birth Certificate
  • 12 months of school reports
  • A letter of reference from your current school
  • Australian Immunisation Registry (English language); and
  • Visa Status (where applicable)

Please contact our Registrar via email or call +61 8 9285 1144 if you have any further questions.

Step 6: Acceptance of Place

A student’s place is secured when the Enrolment Package has been submitted and the non-refundable confirming fee has been paid. Our Registrar will welcome you to our school and you will receive all the tools necessary to make your child’s transition a seamless experience.

Step 7: Assisting Visa Application

ISWA does not process the Visa application (including CRICOS international student visa). We recommend partnering with a migration agent for a swift and positive experience. We can provide the Confirmation of Enrolment Certificate (CoE) to assist a CRICOS international student visa. This is produced once the Enrolment Package has been received and approved.
