International Students


Ipswich Girls' Grammar School welcomes applications from students who are residents of other countries and who wish to study in Australia.

International students are required to provide evidence of their ability to communicate proficiently in English and of their academic standards. Because of this requirement and also the need to organise such details as the Student Visa, the enrolment process for international students is usually coordinated between our Enrolments Registrar, and an approved education agent. However, direct entry can also be considered where no education agent has been engaged.

How to enrol in 7 simple steps:

Step 1
Complete the International Student Enrolment Application Form and submit all necessary documents.

Step 2
Post, fax or email the completed enrolment form and documentation with the application fee of AUD110.00 to Ipswich Girls' Grammar School (EFT details available on the form).

Step 3
The IGGS Enrolments Registrar will make contact with you and provide contact details of an approved education agent in your country if required. The education agent will assist you in the enrolment process, including the acquisition of the Student Visa.

Step 4
Depending on IGGS’ assessment of your application, you may receive either a Letter of Offer (Written Agreement) or a Conditional Letter of Offer (also a Written Agreement) with a request to complete an approved High School Preparation and/or General English Course before enrolling at Ipswich Girls' Grammar School.

Step 5
When payment has been received you will receive an electronic confirmation of enrolment (eCOE). This enables you to apply for your student visa to enter Australia. A copy of the eCOE and Student Welfare Letter will be emailed to you directly or to your agent.

Step 6
Once your VISA is approved you are eligible to enter Australia and commence your studies.

Step 7
On successful completion of your ELICOS Course (if applicable), you will be enrolled at Ipswich Girls' Grammar School. All offers of enrolment are conditional upon successful completion of your enrolment in any ELICOS Course, your interview at Ipswich Girls' Grammar School and your English Proficiency assessment result.
