Health Cover

As required by the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, new students to Wesley are required to purchase private health cover for the entire length of their student visa, prior to arriving in Australia. Wesley College will purchase this, at a cost of AUD$546.00 per annum (or as advised by Health Cover provider), on behalf of the student and invoice this amount on the letter of offer.

Continuing students will be billed at the annual amount of AUD$546.00 * as and when their cover is due to be renewed to ensure their private health insurance is valid for the length of their student visa. 

* This cost is subject to change without notice.

Notice of Withdrawal

One term's notice in writing to the Head of Campus is required advising the withdrawal of a student from the College, otherwise a charge equivalent to one term's fees will apply.


Family Discounts

At Wesley, coeducation is central to our vision for learning, as is our commitment to keeping children in one family together.

A family discount applies to Tuition Fees only, where three or more children are at Wesley College, and the discount is 20% for the third child and 50% for the fourth and any subsequent children.*

* A 10% discount for a second child is also available when a third child has commenced and enrolments are concurrent

If you are eligible for the discount, it is automatically applied to your account.

The family discount does not apply to the Learning Technology Fee or any other fees and charges that are billed to your account.

Families who have been granted other forms of fee assistance may not be entitled to family discounts.

Early Payment Discount

With the exception of fees paid for the first two study periods of the course, a discount of 2.5% is available if the total annual fees are paid in advance eg 2018 by 31 October 2017.
