Mount Alvernia College

Educating young women in the Franciscan tradition

International Exchange Program

Mount Alvernia College accepts long-term exchange students (for periods up to one year) from our sister school, Nigawa Gakuin in Japan.  The presence of exchange students offers our students the opportunity to experience another culture in their daily lives, and to introduce our visitors to the Australian way of life and education.

In return, Mount Alvernia students are invited to undertake an exchange at Nigawa Gakuin, thereby enhancing their Japanese language skills and growing in respect for both the Japanese culture and their own.
