International Enrolments

Welcome to Tamborine Mountain College International Students’ Section.

We are very honoured that you have chosen to view our website and we look forward to assisting you to place your child or children into our College.

We pride ourselves on our excellent academic results.


International students are welcome at Tamborine Mountain College. We take a small number of students from overseas countries and these students are sometimes accommodated with College families for a set weekly boarding fee.

Students are welcome at any stage of their schooling years, but most are interested in the pre-university courses which are Years Eleven and Twelve. Students require a good level of English for these courses. Some students choose to start in Year Ten. Year Ten gives a good introduction to the study in Years Eleven and Twelve along with additional time to develop English Skills. Students may attend at any time over the Years Seven to Twelve depending on available places. Primary enrolment is only available under certain conditions.

Student ages for Australian students are:

College Year Seven –  12/13 years of age
College Year Eight –   13/14 years of age
College Year Nine –    14/15 years of age
College Year Ten –      15/16 years of age
College Year Eleven – 16/17 years of age
College Year Twelve – 17/18 years of age

Courses at Tamborine Mountain College start at the end of January each year and go through to the start of December. The major vacation is from early December to late January. There are short vacations in April, June and September each year.
