Studying at SISTC

Sydney International School of Technology and Commerce (SISTC) welcomes students from a diversity of cultural settings.


Our students

We welcome students from a diversity of cultural settings. This creates a vibrant learning experience which is enriched by the perspectives and experiences of students from a wide range of backgrounds.

We encourage students to get involved in the life of the campus through a range of student-related committees, and by being the student representative on some key decision-making committees. We will tell you more about the details of this during your student orientation. You can put your name forward to be directly involved as a student representative in areas which are of interest to you.

We offer three trimesters that let you spread your studies over the year and ease the load on you, while letting you meet the visa requirements for your total study load. You can also fast track your studies to complete your courses sooner.


Approach to Learning

Our courses are offered via face to face in class delivery.

Our learning sessions are highly interactive and our experienced teaching team ensures that you are always supported in your studies.

We are a genuinely multicultural institute encouraging students to engage in interactive sessions with each other, enriching the learning experience for all students.
