Real Time Study Options | On & Off Campus

In 2024, international students can study their programs in real time online from outside Australia via zoom within +2 or -3 time zone from Australian Eastern Standard Time (AEST), such as Indonesia, Malaysia, Philippines, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, Japan, China, New Zealand, Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and New Caledonia.

This means that you can start studying from your home country at a time that suits you in 2023, while you apply for your student visa approval for any of these courses.


What our student say:


"I like that PSC is a small college. It’s not a gigantic campus and people get to know you –  you're not just an ID number. I find I learn better when I can more easily engage with my environment."

Jules Perrenot, France



- Masatoshi Kobayashi, Japan


"One of the main reasons I chose to study here was that the class sizes were not too big so I thought I could  get closer to the teachers. Also seeing all the students and staff winning awards made it even more attractive. "

- Rani Joensen, Faroe Islands


"The photo studio at PSC is the best! We have a massive cyclorama and numerous bays that can be configured into one large space."

- David CH Lai, Hong Kong
