Our Temporary Residents program helps students with a temporary resident visa to study at a Queensland Government primary school, high school or State Delivered Kindergarten.
Students who are temporary resident visa holders, including
dependants of international students,
bridging visa holders and
visitor or tourist visa holders can have different study experiences at a Queensland Government primary school, high school or
State Delivered Kindergarten.
They will enjoy a rich learning experience and get a great foundation for further studies later, including at university.
Additional information is available in the
Temporary Residents Admissions policy and
Temporary Residents Admissions procedure.
If you are not a temporary visa holder, your options for study in Queensland include our
Primary School program or
High School program, and the
International Baccalaureate Diploma program for high achieving students.
Our Temporary Resident program supports international students to learn in a world-class education system while living temporarily in Queensland.
