EQI is one of the largest providers of programs for international students in Australia. It is the international division of the Queensland Department of Education and works with leading schools to offer high-quality education.

Over 90 schools are part of the EQI International Student Program, where there are lifestyle options to suit all different kinds of learners. Students can:

  • Gain internationally-recognized qualifications

Programs available include:

  • Primary school from Prep to Year 6
  • Secondary high school from Year 7 to Year 12
  • High school preparation
  • International Baccalaureate (IB), with a 3-year immersion program for Year 10 to Year 12

Virtual high school preparation program

EQI's virtual high school preparation program offers flexible English preparation in a virtual learning environment. It was designed in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing students to continue learning and practising their English skills in a safe environment.

The program involves plenty of teacher interaction through Microsoft Teams. Students enjoy engaging lessons delivered by highly experienced teachers and student-to-student interaction in the virtual classroom environment.

Parents are involved throughout the process and receive academic progress reports and end of term interview sessions.

Once travel restrictions are lifted, students can fast-track to their in-person studies at a Queensland government high school. The program is designed in line with the EQI High School Preparation program and offers both beginner and intermediate classes to ensure students are prepared for their mainstream classroom experience.

Virtual high school - Year 10

The Year 10 program commences in Term 1 2022 (January) and is available for students seeking to begin their Year 10 program in a virtual learning environment.

Students will study six subjects delivered by specially chosen and highly trained Queensland teachers. Classes will be delivered through Microsoft Teams and Education Perfect platforms, with access provided as part of their EQI enrolment.

Key lessons will be recorded to support students' learning and when Australia's borders open, students will transition to their face-to-face onshore Year 10 program.
