Director's Welcome

The world in which we live is changing rapidly.  Globalisation, characterised by increased mobility of people, technology, money, ideas and knowledge is your future world.  John Paul College has been preparing students for their place in the world for 30 years and, in 1997, opened John Paul International College to better prepare students for their studies in Australia.  Choosing the right pathway from school to university is an important decision as it will shape your future career.

At our Daisy Hill Campus our International Primary Preparation Program and our High School Preparation Program facilitate students' successful entry to John Paul College's mainstream classes.

Our programs help international students to meet academic entry standards and develop study, language and cultural skills.  This ensures a smooth and successful transition to their study in Australia, either at Primary School, High School or Diploma/ Degree courses in Australian and international universities.

To assist your studies and ensure your time with us is a happy one, we offer a full range of support services including orientation programs, English language tuition, academic and vocational counselling and assistance with Homestay and private accommodation.  While academic success is vital, your personal welfare is just as important to us.

As one of Australia’s largest and most respected institutions, our College has been providing opportunities for international students studying in Australia for over 30 years.  Having been twice judged as one of the Best Ten Schools in Australia, I invite you to contact us to discuss how we can help you advance your chosen career.

I look forward to welcoming you to Brisbane.
