Upper Mount Gravatt (UMG) State School is an inclusive, healthy and successful school that focuses on academic excellence, arts and sports. The school curriculum covers all the key learning areas with particular emphasis on literacy and numeracy extension programs, emotional intelligence and higher-order thinking.
Cultural diversity and languages are valued at UMG and supported through our English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) and Chinese Mandarin language programs. The student body includes international students whose parents are short-term residents in Australia.
UMG has outstanding outdoor facilities and students have access to a swimming pool, basketball and tennis courts, adventure playgrounds, sealed play areas, gym, low ropes course, student edge lounge and large sports ovals. Extracurricular activities include instrumental music, choir and interschool sporting competitions.
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.

* Students enrolled in Primary School must live with a parent or close relative as defined by the Australian Immigration Regulations.
EQI Holiday Adventure Programs are an exciting and safe way for International Students to travel and sightsee during school holidays.
There's an EQI adventure to suit every taste - from visiting city landmarks and riding camels on an unforgettable Australian 'outback' adventure, to exploring ancient rainforests and swimming with turtles off Queensland's pristine white sand beaches.
All EQI Holiday Adventures are fully guided and escorted by qualified Queensland Government teachers and staff to ensure student safety. These programs are open to international students enrolled in an EQI high school, and additional fees apply. To find out more visit the holiday programs page
