Home based students are those students where SIDE is the only school at which the student is enrolled. Enrolment at SIDE is based on eligibility criteria within one enrolment category being met and documentation being supplied. Currently there is a minimum enrolment period of at least one Western Australian school semester. Enrolments are reviewed annually.

Enrolments for 2018 open on 10th October 2017. Please do not start a 2018 enrolment application before discussion with a SIDE Student Coordinator.

 Please read Fast Track to SIDE and information about our 2018 courses.

Please see the Languages Enrolments page for specific SCSA requirements for Year 11 and 12 language course enrolments.
