Academic excellence

​​​​​​​​​​​​​Choosing an EQI program gives international students access to one of the best performing education systems in the world. According to the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), Australia is among the top performing countries in education with students scoring above the international average by a significant margin.

EQI study programs​ support students to fulfil their academic and personal potential. With a diverse range of academic and sports subjects to choose from, students can gain a deeper understanding of the world, and develop the knowledge and skills they need to succeed in their choice of career or further study.

​Teaching a​​nd learning

Queensland Government schools focus on student achievement, and aim to inspire a culture of lifelong learning through:

  • ​Teaching experience and quality: Queensland Government high school teachers hold a minimum four-year undergraduate university degree, and many have postgraduate qualifications 
  • Challenging learning experiences to further develop reading, writing, numeracy, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) expertise (including coding and robotics), across the curriculum
  • Recognition of each individual student’s academic, social and emotional needs
  • The creation of global citizens and entrepreneurs by embedding STEM programs and expanding the study of languages
  • ​Support for teachers’ professional development and partnerships with industry and tertiary study providers to expand opportunities for student learning 
  • Pathways to university and vocational education that enable students to study tertiary level subjects in high school. ​​

Modern learning spaces and facilities 

​Queensland Government schools benefit from innovative e-learning technology; computer, science and multi-media laboratories and contemporary creative and sports facilities that support 21st century academic and vocational learning. 

The Education Services for Overseas Students (ESOS) Act 

As an international student you benefit from Australian laws that ensure high standards of education, facilities and support while you are in Australia. You can find out more about these protections in the ESOS stu​dent factsheet.

Quality as​​​surance 

​All the Queensland Government schools represented by EQI are accredited to provide quality assured programs​ for international students.
