HSC’s International Admissions Process 
HSC boasts a diverse and inclusive student body, one that benefits from the unique qualities that each student brings to our learning environment.
Admission to HSC is not dependent on a single factor. Our admissions committee considers a variety of aspects when reviewing a prospective student including academic records, test and/or assessment results and interviews as well as the student’s character, talents and leadership qualities. 

As English is the primary language of instruction and communication at HSC, applicants must demonstrate an adequate level of proficiency in English, regardless of their citizenship or country of origin.
