International Students

Over the past 50 years, Australia has openly welcomed millions of students from all over the world. St Aidan’s Anglican Girls’ School is proud to have been able to educate many international students over these years.

Welcome to Australia

We are proud to be a small school, with approximately 1000 students from Kindy to Year 12. Our campus is located adjacent to the Corinda train station in the leafy green western suburbs of Brisbane.

Our inspiring professionals - leaders, teachers and support staff - create a safe and nurturing environment for all students at St Aidan’s. With over 35 subjects to choose from, and a diverse range of sporting, service and cultural extra-curricular activities to participate in, students receive a world-class education and are part of a connected community.

Every year, our students lead the state and nation in literacy, numeracy and ATAR results.

We embrace international students as they are a valuable part of our learning community. They help grow our shared understandings and perspectives about the world in which we all live, work and learn. We look forward to helping your daughter settle in at St Aidan’s.

Students are able to enrol for one semester, one year, or long-term.

Homestay accommodation is organised through UIL - Union Institute of Language.  More information, including forms and fees, are located on the UIL website.
