Current Student


At Highgate International College, we understand the challenges of being away from your family and familiar surroundings. We recognize that adjusting to a new routine and environment can be difficult. That is why we are dedicated to ensuring your stay in Australia is as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

As part of our commitment to our students, we offer comprehensive support and guidance. We provide incoming students with essential information about what to expect when they commence their studies in Australia. Every new student is required to attend an Orientation Program before starting their course at Highgate International. An invitation, including the date, time, and venue of the Orientation Program, will be sent via email to the student or their representative. We believe that this program will help you transition smoothly into your academic journey with us.

At the Orientation Program, students will be provided with the following information:

  • Course Timetable
  • Student Handbook
  • Attendance
  • Course Progress Policies
  • Student Support Services
  • Legal Services
  • Emergency and Health Services
  • Facilities and Learning Resources
  • Complaints and Appeals Process

After attending the orientation, every student will receive a Student ID card. Highgate International College is committed to providing services that support students in achieving their educational goals. We offer assistance in various areas to ensure their success. Furthermore, new students will be provided with detailed information on the following:

  • Procedures for independent complaints and appeals, as well as dispute resolution arrangements.
  • Support and guidance in meeting enrolment requirements.
  • Guidance on obtaining Overseas Student Health Cover, which is mandatory for international students holding student visas.
  • Information about public transport concessions available to eligible students.
