Excellence programs

Study tour programs tailored to meet the academic focus of the visiting group provide an ideal mix of academic excellence and cultural exchange activities. Students have the unique opportunity to broaden their knowledge and expertise in their chosen field, by studying alongside like-minded peers in an innovative Queensland school environment.

Many Queensland Government schools have been identified as ‘Schools of Excellence’, focusing on specific areas or programs including sports, music, arts and other key curriculum areas. These schools offer innovative and specialised programs, designed and delivered by teaching professionals and experts in their chosen field. Many of these schools also boast strong links with Queensland’s tertiary institutes and local industry, to ensure practical curriculum design and to provide a strong foundation for students’ future career development.

Study tour programs may be customised to match each group’s specific academic focus, and delivered at a complementary host school demonstrating excellence and innovation in their desired field.

Focus areas may include:

Excellence study tour programs integrate specialised academic and English lessons, cultural activities and themebased excursions, with the aim of strengthening students’ long-term academic performance and personal growth.

Students will also benefit from sharing their own learnings and talents with Queensland students and the wider school community through specifically arranged cultural activities. Programs often include joint performances, sporting and other cultural activities with local students. Learning and performing alongside Queensland buddies is a once in a lifetime experience, allowing the visiting students the opportunity to develop personally and academically.
