The International Student Program is a valued feature of our school. We have Australian ambassadors who will assist you to settle into Australian life.
Students quickly integrate into a close-knit and small community. With a strong history of international student participation, Whites Hill State College offers excellent opportunities for an Australian immersion experience within a rigorous academic environment. The college has strong ties to Griffith University, University of Queensland and other tertiary educational institutions. Many of our graduating international students choose to remain in Brisbane and seek entry to these universities.
We nurture individual students to support academic success through student coaching.
