Under 18 Students
If you are under the age of 18, Australian law considers you to be a minor and as such the College takes special interest in your welfare and development.
Under 18 students are required to meet with an allocated class teacher every two weeks so that the College can assess general welfare and ensure that students are managing well in their new environment regarding their accommodation, finances, friendships, health, studies and contacting their family on a regular basis. The College takes their responsibility to take care of under 18 students very seriously and regular checks are made to ensure that circumstances during their time in Adelaide are optimal at all times.
It is a requirement under Australian law that students keep the College informed at all times of where they are living. Under 18 students are not permitted to live in ‘Independent Rental’ accommodation until they are 18 years of age. It is a requirement of the Australian Department of Home Affairs that students under the age of 18 live in accommodation approved by the College until they turn 18. This approved accommodation is exclusive to homestay or a residence where prior arrangements have been made with management for extra supervision.
While the College welcomes students under the age of 18, the University of Adelaide has rules regarding the admission of students who are under 18 years old. Students must be at least 17 years old at the commencement of their respective University of Adelaide program. Please contact the College to ensure you comply with the University’s age admission rules.
