International Students

International Students play a big role in our student body.

International students have been an integral part of our student community since the very beginning. We host students from all over the world. Newington’s location in Sydney’s Inner West provides an ideal environment for our international students to study, play and excel side-by-side with local students.

Under the provisions of the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 2000 and the National Code 2007, Newington College seeks to provide international students with a safe, enjoyable and rewarding experience, consistent with national education standards. Australia’s laws promote quality education and consumer protection for overseas students. These laws are known as the ESOS framework and include the Education Services for Overseas (ESOS) Act 2000 and The National Code.
