At Varsity College we value the ideals of an International education. Our International Programs foster cultural understanding and personal development for our visitors and for our school community. Through our programs, we provide opportunities for students and staff to form life-long global networks.
Varsity College welcomes visitors from overseas destinations on both short-term and long-term programs. Our school community values the cultural heritage of other nations and is very interested in developing global networks of friendship, education and business.
We host study tours every year and welcome many International students. These students choose to study with us because of our diverse and innovative curriculum, as well as a school culture that is second to none.
Our Graduate program students find that our host families friendly and supportive, whilst their welfare is with the school. What does it mean to be under Varsity College’s welfare? It means as the Executive Principal, I am your legal guardian for the duration of your study at Varsity College.
I welcome you to become part of our International Family. We know that this will be a mutual rewarding experience that results in you achieving your desired goals.
Varsity College is one of the largest schools in Queensland, with over 3000 students across two campuses and four sub-schools. Led by the Executive Principal, each sub-school has a Head of School and Deputy Heads of School who are accountable for the achievement outcomes for each student within their sub-school. We are committed to providing a school where your child can experience success on a daily basis.
We believe for this to occur the school needs to build upon four pillars of success: academic, cultural, sporting and community.
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
