High performing students may even be eligible for a Canning College scholarship

From KK to top of the class

"Being able to experience studying at Canning, both online and offline, has been an extremely fun experience,” said Jamielynn, who was Top Award winner and valedictorian for the Mid-Year 2021-22 WA Universities' Foundation Program. “The staff in Canning College have been very helpful throughout our journey, providing all the help we needed.”

The right program for every student 

Our experienced staff help students understand if the WA Universities’ Foundation Program is the best fit for their academic level. We may recommend the Certificate IV in University Access Program, which can be completed in just six months and leads into Canning’s Diploma of Commerce or a range of degree courses at Curtin University and Murdoch University

Learn from the best 

Canning College has been educating international students for 40 years and our staff understand the unique needs of global learners. After students enrol in Canning College programs, our staff help them prepare for life on campus and in our great city – Perth, Western Australia. Students not yet ready to travel can choose to start an online learning program. 

Before students leave home to start their international education adventure, they are provided with all the information they need to make life easy in Perth. They learn about the subjects in each program, and our support services, which include additional English language assistance and wellbeing services. They also receive advice regarding accommodation. Students under the age of 18 stay with a registered member of the Australian Homestay Network, where they receive additional care and support.

The support students need

On arrival in Perth, students are offered a free airport pick-up service that takes them to their accommodation. Our spacious campus, set in a natural setting next to Curtin University, has modern classrooms and fully equipped science laboratories where subjects are taught by teachers who understand the needs of international students. 

A team of Student Advisors are available throughout the year to provide advice and assistance with queries regarding studies, personal wellbeing and university destinations. 

Our priority is to give every student a happy and supported experience, not just in the classroom but in every aspect of their life in Perth. 

Choose your university 

When international students successfully complete a Canning College program, it opens up a world of university opportunities. While some students choose to continue their studies elsewhere in Australia or even overseas, many stay in Western Australia. 

We have long-standing partnerships with Western Australia’s five universities – Curtin UniversityEdith Cowan UniversityMurdoch UniversityThe University of Notre Dame and The University of Western Australia. Many of our students also choose to enrol in other Australian universities such as The University of Melbourne, The University of Sydney, The University of Queensland.

Our admissions team can process applications quickly so that students do not have an anxious wait to know if they have been successful. When visa delays prevent student arrival in Perth, a switch to online learning means students can start immediately.
