Primary School Program (Years P-6)
Primary School (Years P-6) – CRICOS Course Code: 082519A
The Primary School Program is for students who want to come to Queensland to study in Prep to Year 6. Students participate in the Queensland primary school curriculum, which is taught by world-class teachers. EQI primary schools encourage a global perspective and promote a safe and friendly learning environment for all students.
Primary school students who are from a non-English speaking background also receive quality English as an Additional Language/Dialect (EAL/D) support, delivered by specialist EAL/D teachers. This EAL/D support is provided to develop the student’s English language ability to allow them to fully participate in primary classes.
Every EQI school has a dedicated guidance officer and international student coordinator. Visit our Support Team page for more information.
A number of Queensland state schools are accredited to accept primary school age international students. They are offered at four great locations in Queensland.

EQI primary school students must reside with a parent or close family relative,
as defined by Division 1.2 of Migration Regulations. These regulations define a close family relative as:
- A parent or step-parent
- An aunt or an uncle
- A grandparent or step-grandparent
EQI will closely monitor the residency status of the close family relative to ensure continuous care and support of the student.
