No, we do not have any boarding or accommodation facilities. That said, it’s not uncommon for students to relocate from rural communities to undertake our HSC program; however, boarding must be arranged by the student’s family. Many of our students from rural communities stay with local family or friends, arrange a private rental or board at an external facility. If you would like to discuss private accommodation in Sydney please contact our Admissions Team who may be able to point you in the right direction.
To apply, you need to submit an online application. Applications are open year-round.
No! At SEDA College NSW, we simply love sport and we expect that you do too. Selection is not dependent on skill and students of all skill levels may apply.
We accept applications from current Year 10 students to commence Year 11 in the following year. Generally, students apply for the program the year before starting at SEDA College NSW. Mid-year intake for current Year 11s looking to change schools can be considered at the end of Term 2.
The number of students that can be aligned with each sporting partner is limited, and applications are assessed on a first come first-served basis. Applicants are strongly encouraged to apply early to ensure they have the best chance of securing a place in their desired class.
No, all students must leave their current school and attend SEDA College NSW full-time. SEDA College NSW is a registered independent school and you cannot be enrolled at another school at the same time.
No, the HSC program delivered by SEDA College NSW is a full-time study commitment.
We recognise that some students will come to us with elite sporting backgrounds that require flexibility in their timetable, and this is considered on a case-by-case basis.
Students complete their HSC and VET certificates, via a hands-on curriculum. Students complete their qualifications in the classroom, the workplace and the community. A sample student timetable is available in our prospectus.
Yes, absolutely! In fact, we expect that you will have sporting commitments outside of school.
You’ll complete your HSC with us over 2 years. You’ll start in Year 11 and finish in Year 12.
Students are responsible for finding their own work placement. However, your teacher will provide you with the skills, information and support you’ll need to find an opportunity and secure a placement. Students are not limited to completing their work placement in sport and recreation, and are welcome to look for placement opportunities in other areas of interest.

No, you will not receive an ATAR upon completion of the program. However, our HSC program offers many pathways for students, including continuing to further study at University or TAFE. For more information, see our non-ATAR pathways information here.
When considering their futures, our students have a range of options available. Many continue into further study at University and TAFE and others go straight into apprenticeships or employment after finishing school. You can read more about the pathway opportunities available to you here.
Any scholarships that are available are funded by the school and will be advertised on our scholarships page here.
Students have opportunities to engage with their sporting partners through game day assistance, coaching opportunities, primary school clinics and more. Sporting partners generally run an induction day for students at the beginning of Year 11, and there may be opportunities to engage and network with guest speakers throughout the year. Some partners also offer limited competitive work placements to our students.
No. It is very important to understand that we are not a talent development school. Our focus is on preparing our students for life after Year 12 and to engage them with their education through a shared passion for sport. We have many talented sports people among our students, and some of them do go on to play professionally – these students graduate well-equipped for a life after sport. However, the majority of our students take other paths in life.
