COLLEGE ORIENTATION

There is an orientation session for international students prior to the beginning of each term. This is an opportunity for you to meet the Administration staff and to introduce you to the College and its facilities, and also to meet with other new students.

At orientation you will receive your individual, comprehensive orientation pack, information on your class timetable, student ID card, overseas student health card, and a transport concession card (Smart Rider) that gives you a discount on all train, bus and ferry fares.

  • Applications for further study
  • Information on overseas student health cover and international students’ obligations with respect to overseas visa conditions

DEPENDANTS

If you are on a student visa and are bringing your school-aged children to Australia, they are obliged to attend school and you will have to pay full fees at a government or non-government school.

ACTIVITIES

Cultural activities, guest speakers and study excursions are all part of the Sterling Business College experience and we will encourage you to take part in these.

ACCOMMODATION AND AIRPORT PICKUP

Provided prior arrangement has been made, you can be picked up from the airport by a representative of the college. We understand the importance of students from overseas having comfortable and secure living arrangements within easy reach of the campus, and we can provide you with advice on the following accommodation alternatives:

  • Homestay, where you live with a local family
  • Rented accommodation, such as apartments or houses
  • Temporary short-term accommodation in hostels, dormitories and apartments

OVERSEAS STUDENT HEALTH COVER (OSHC)

Students from overseas who are studying on a student visa are required to maintain valid Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) for the entire duration of their stay in Australia – this includes the period before and after your course at SBC.

OSHC is a special health cover that provides medical and hospital insurance for overseas students. This health cover can be arranged by us as part of your enrolment process.  We work with Allianz Global Assistance as our insurer.

If you have requested SBC organise your OSHC for you, we will arrange for your cover to commence 2 weeks before the start date of your course – if you intend to arrive in Australia earlier than this date you will need to contact Allianz to advise them of your arrival date to ensure you are fully covered from the moment you arrive in Australia.

If SBC has arranged your OSHC the end date of your cover will be a minimum of 1 month after the end date of your final course at SBC.
