Our students achieve some of the best academic results in Queensland.
We offer outstanding extracurricular programs including music, sport and university-level science
and mathematics courses, and we also have extension programs including German language and
Ken-X - for high-performing students.
Each week you can attend two days of after school tutoring as well as an extra 70-minute English class.
Through our partnerships with three universities, we provide regular speakers to explain how to
access university and to help you to explore your options after school.
Homestay* enables EQI students to truly experience Australia's famous lifestyle.
By living with an Australian host family international students become part of the local community and have a fantastic opportunity to practise their English in a safe and caring home environment. International students often develop lasting friendships with their homestay families.
Standard Homestay fees have been set and these are listed on the EQI program fees page.
