All applications for enrolment at NSW School of Languages must be made through the student's own school Principal and must meet certain enrolment criteria established by the Department of Education. These criteria are published in the current Distance Education Enrolment Procedures.  

Some of these criteria are also detailed in our Enrolment Information Booklet (pdf 468 KB).
