It offers the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE), an internationally-accepted University entrance qualification from Australia, for Years 11 and 12.


The academic year calendar aims to cater for families who originate from both hemispheres by having long breaks both at the end of the calendar year as well as the middle of the year. The school year is made up of four ten-week terms. Students have a five-week holiday over December/January and June/July and 1 week holiday in April and September.  DIS has five pupil-free days each year, set aside for the first two days of Term 1 and 3 the first day of Term 2 and 4.
