Guardianship

To get the best from your experience of living and studying in Australia, it’s important you have guidance, support and counselling available at all times.

If you are under 18 years of age or studying Year 11 and 12 VCE, you are required to appoint a guardian and submit a Nomination of Accommodation and Guardian Form.

You can choose your own guardian, or to take up a professional guardianship service.
Our preferred guardianship provider is Guardianship Australia, who will provide:
