Student life

Life outside the classroom

We believe our students do so well in their studies and grow in confidence partly because they participate in activities outside the classroom. You can pick from a wide range of activities to develop social and personal skills, including sports clubs, cultural trips, social clubs and regular college events. We can help you find an activity that suits your interests and talents, so you receive a well-rounded education.

Student led activity

Many of our clubs are run by students, for students. We have Year 12 leaders elected by the students annually. They represent all High School Program students. There are lots of clubs, sports and activities you can be involved with, including basketball, soccer, table tennis, dance, yoga debate, maths and even knitting, plus so much more.

When you graduate you automatically join the Taylors Alumni community. This has more than 69,000 graduates from over 50 countries, many of who are now leaders in their fields. You are also encouraged to join our Student Reunion when you graduate.

Exploring Sydney

Studying in the heart of Sydney provides further opportunities to learn outside the classroom. This flexible approach to your education will help you learn about Australia’s culture and history, while improving your English. We are also close to the city’s business district, which gives you easy access to Australia’s financial and business centre.

Making new friends

Our students tell us it's easy to make friends at Taylors College. Unlike local schools, where friendship groups are already established, the majority of our students are from overseas. Everyone you meet here will be in the same situation at you – living away from home and learning a new language.

To help you get to know each other, we organise orientation activities when you first arrive. You can also make friends by joining one of our clubs or activities.

"I like going to beaches a lot. It's definitely nice to be able to just take a 20-minute drive and get there whenever I want. I really enjoy the people here because they're more friendly compared to most places and they're always willing to help you out if you get lost."
