Welfare and Accommodation

Welfare and Accommodation.

At ISWA, we understand the importance of effective assistance for CRICOS international students who may be living in Australia unaccompanied by their family.

Accommodation Options

The International School of Western Australia does not offer boarding accommodation facilities.

To maintain welfare, overseas students can either:

A nominated guardian is one of the following:

  • The parent of the CRICOS International student
  • A person who has legal custody,
  • An eligible and nominated relative who is aged over 21 and is of good character;
  • Spouse or de facto partner of the parent
  • Brother, sister, step-brother, step-sister
  • Grandparent or a step-grandparent
  • Aunt, uncle, niece, nephew, step-aunt, step-uncle, step-niece or step-nephew;
    providing a police clearance from the countries in which they have lived for more than 12 months in the past 10 years after the age of 16 an Australian citizen, permanent resident, or be eligible to remain in Australia until the overseas student’s visa expires or the overseas student turns 18 years of age (whichever happens first).

If the welfare arrangements change, the parent or legal guardian has an obligation to advise ISWA and the Department of Home Affairs. Any alternative welfare arrangements must be approved by the Department of Home Affairs. 

CRICOS Support

  •  Australian Federal Government Study Support: The official Australian Government website for CRICOS international students is Study In Australia. 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 the Commonwealth Ombudsman. Students can access advocacy and personal support for complaints and appeals about their private education provider from Commonwealth Ombudsman.
