SACE – An international passport to learning
SACE International is an internationally recognized pre-university program administered by the SACE Board of South Australia.
It provides an opportunity for students to study in their own country and build upon their local pre-matriculation studies. It is the most popular Australian-based pre-university program in Malaysia, where it has been taught since 1982. The program has also been taught successfully in China since 2005.
Students who successfully complete SACE International are accredited with the South Australian Certificate of Education (SACE), an award that is recognized within the Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF). Students are provided with a university aggregate score (out of 90) and an Australian Tertiary Admission Rank (ATAR). The ATAR is a percentile ranking that is recognized without modification by all tertiary selection agencies in Australia and is used by universities around the world for entry selection purposes.
SACE International has given more than 40,000 students access to the SACE in their own country and has led to their acceptance by universities across the world, including in Australia, the United States of America, the United Kingdom, Canada, and New Zealand.
