OVERSEAS TUITION FEES

Presbyterian Ladies’ College, Sydney is registered by the NSW Board of Studies to accept overseas students (CRICOS Provider Code: 02280D). The Australian Government classifies an overseas student who is neither an Australian citizen nor one who holds an Australian Residency Visa and who attends an Australian school, as an ‘Full Fee Paying Overseas Student’. The school does not receive government subsidies for such overseas students and as such these students must pay full fees.

boarding fees

Boarding fees are in addition to all other fees and are inclusive of GST.
It is suggested that Boarders hold a bank account for incidental expenses which can be accessed through a local ATM.
For Year 12, boarding places are offered on the understanding that the fee is an annual one and there is a commitment to pay the whole year’s fee. For all other years, to withdraw a student from the Boarding House, a school term’s notice in writing or one term’s fees in lieu are required. If a boarding student wishes to apply to become a day student, or vice versa, a Change of Status Form must be submitted by her parents.

WITHDRAWAL OR TRANSFER OF A STUDENT

The withdrawal of a student requires at least one full school term’s notice in writing to the Principal, otherwise one term of the annual tuition fee in lieu of notice will be payable. As part of the Board of Studies’ requirements it is now compulsory to advise the College, in the notice of withdrawal, the name of the school to which the student is being transferred. The transfer of a student from Boarding to Day Girl or vice versa status requires one full school term’s notice by submitting a Change of Status Form to the Principal.
