International Students

Applications for enrolments of International students are always welcome. International students have historically played a central role in Princes Hill and are regarded as important contributors to the College’s culture and ethos. The educational program at the College is designed to support the development of the whole person, with positive self-image, seeking excellence and respecting the rights of others. Currently International students from China, South Korea and Taiwan are enrolled at the college.
