Study tours

Study tour programs combine exciting educational, tourism and cultural exchange activities for overseas student groups.
Students have the opportunity to enhance their English language skills and academic capabilities by studying alongside their school buddies in an Australian classroom environment. By integrating into the school community, students have the opportunity to develop lasting international friendships.
Students will experience the unique Australian lifestyle while staying with a homestay family carefully selected from within the school community.
Our Study Tours offer a variety of customised and flexible educational programs designed to fulfil individual group requirements and interests. Programs can include excursions for students to explore the Gold Coast's natural environment and experience fun tourism activities.

  • English as an Additional Language/Dialect Lessons
