Queensland Academies Creative Industries (QACI) is excited to open up opportunities for international students to join our vibrant community and expand our global connections. Being an International Baccalaureate school, we cater for the creative, clever and global student who aspire to developing academic critical minds for the 21st century. We also believe our community members will benefit and gain enrichment from the homestay exchange experience.

Our campus has the capacity to enrol up to 450 students in Years 10, 11 and 12.

Our students benefit from unique partnerships with the Queensland University of Technology, the University of Queensland and Griffith University to provide a seamless transition between senior school and university for highly capable students. Students and staff engage in a strong research-based model of learning and teaching in collaboration with university and industry partners.

Each student at QACI is offered an integrated, parallel support structure to foster a sense of belonging that supports, encourages and celebrates success. Our teachers, and other support staff, work closely with students in small groups and in one on one mentoring to ensure students balance the challenges of the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma with other pursuits. This is further supported by our Principal, Mr Gavin Bryce who personally manages and monitors the welfare arrangements for any international students enrolled at QACI who are not under the direct care and supervision of their parents or a close family relatives.

Detailed information for international students considering applying for a place at our campus can be found via our Queensland Academies admissions team.
