Distance education

​The Department of Education and Training (DET) has rigorous and comprehensive infrastructure and resourcing requirements for Queensland state schools. The focus is on providing progressive, next-generation learning facilities to encourage students to develop high-order thinking.

Details of these initiatives can be found in the individual school links in the School Profiles​.

​An overseas student enrolled in an Education Queensland International (EQI) program (‘student’) will not be enrolled in a subject to be studied through a State school of distance education except in compelling and exceptional circumstances. Compelling circumstances refer to the best educational interests of the student. Exceptional circumstances include, for example, where the student needs to study a particular subject, their school does not offer that subject and it would not be reasonable to require the student to transfer to a different EQI school that does offer that subject.

A student can only study one subject through a State school of distance education at any time.

International student coordinators should refer all requests to study through distance education to the Director, International Student Programs (ISP), EQI. The Director, ISP, will determine if compelling and exceptional circumstances apply, taking into account all relevant circumstances. Students will be informed, in writing, of the decision.
