Our Study Abroad program lets you follow your personal, cultural and academic goals at schools all over Queensland. You’ll experience world-class education while you’re here, whether you choose the city or the outback, rainforest or beach as part of Regional Study Abroad. Studying in Queensland is recognised by several education systems around the world, and your home country education system could be one of them. 

If this program is not exactly right for you, other options include our longer High School program and the International Baccalaureate Diploma program for high achieving students.
