Queensland Academies offer the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma Programme.
The selective entry process ensures that students study in a supportive and cohesive environment with like-minded, highly-capable peers.
Students participate in Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) which enables them to enhance their personal and interpersonal development by learning through experience, initiative and perseverance while developing skills such as collaboration, problem solving and decision making.
Partnerships with leading universities afford benefits such as Advanced Standing Credits, attainment of additional tertiary rankings, industry experience, involvement with university staff and access to world-class resources and facilities.
The Queensland Academies experience includes participation in student leadership activities, outdoor education, sports, music and milestone events such as formals and graduation ceremonies.
Every EQI school has a dedicated guidance officer and international student coordinator. Visit the support team page for more information.
To be accepted into the Queensland Academies students must demonstrate superior academic results in their home school system and meet English language proficiency requirements.
