International Students

St Augustine’s College welcomes international students to our Saints community.

The College and boarding residences are located in the inner city of Cairns, close to all amenities. Saints provides a wide variety of academic, sporting and cultural experiences for students. 

We invite applications for full fee-paying International students from Years 7 to 12. Cultural diversity is celebrated and we appreciate each student’s uniqueness, while striving to tailor an individual educational path for all our students.


Our international students enjoy studying and living at St Augustine’s College. Boys must be age appropriate by Australian education standards for the year level in which they are applying. Saints offers a wide variety of subjects and co-curricular activities.


St Augustine’s College requires evidence of sufficient proficiency in English to successfully meet the curriculum demands of the enrolled course. This may be evidence of previous study in English, or as results of an acceptable English language proficiency test.

Students who speak English as a second language (ESL) may require pre-testing and additional ESL support.  This can be provided at additional cost.

St Augustine’s College prefers to interview and test our international students before issuing the necessary papers for them to apply for a student visa. 


Only CRICOS courses can be offered to international students studying in Australia on student visas. All international students must reside at St Augustine’s as full-time boarders.
