Masada College is a co-educational day school on the North Shore of Sydney that raises responsible individual thinkers with a strong sense of social justice and confidence in their ability to determine their own future. We work in close partnership with parents and teachers to maximise students' potential. It is not surprising that our graduates win scholarships and awards and embark on a diverse range of career paths. Students from all backgrounds are welcome to our College which prides itself on inclusivity. For overseas students we have a dedicated Patron who helps students settle into both Australian life and Masada College. Come and talk to us about what we can offer your child.
Masada College is registered for a limited number of Overseas Students from Kindergarten to Year 12. An overseas student is a student who is not an Australian or New Zealand citizen or a permanent resident.
Masada College does not receive government subsidies for overseas students so they must pay full overseas fees published by the College on our website.
While Masada College is happy to accept recommendations of international students through agents for enrolments, we do not pay commissions to these agents.
It is the responsibility of the student and their family to arrange and pay for Medical Insurance and provide proof of payment to the College prior to enrolment acceptance.
Prospective overseas students are required to meet the criteria in compliance with the requirements set out by the Department of Education, Employment and Workplace Relations (DEEWR) and the Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS).
