Visa 500 Students

Trustees of Edmund Rice Education Australia trading as St Laurence’s College CRICOS Provider Code:  00972C

St Laurence’s College has been welcoming Visa 500 international students from across the world since 1991.  Fully immersed in the life of the College, these students in Years 5 to 12 have not only achieved academically but have also grown as young men through their participation in the extensive co-curricular opportunities that the College offers.

Our College offers a broad range of ATAR and VET subjects enabling students to be well prepared for their chosen tertiary or work placement pathways after school.  Supported by a teaching mentor, students will elect their subjects and study in the classroom with their domestic friends.  International students have excelled academically achieving their Queensland Certificate of Education with some achieving College Dux Award and Subject Dux Awards.

New friends, happy memories and new skills are many of the benefits enjoyed when our international students have participated in the College co-curricular program.  From playing sport, to performing in the College band, nurturing the urban farm to computer coding, there is a co-curricular activity for everyone.

As a day school, international students enjoy the rich culture of living in loving and caring Australian homestay or, living with a blood relative as approved by the Australian Government.

The education and care of your son is our priority. To ensure that every student is known and feels valued, the College offers a dedicated International Students Co-ordinator who is on-call 24/7 to offer assistance to your son at school and after hours as well as a Head of International Students who will continually monitor and support each student's academic outcomes. We also provide holiday excursion programs taking students fishing, indoor golf, basketball, go-karting and lunch.

Students may enrol directly or via an Agent.  Please refer to our Agent Details list below.

Academic Programs

St Laurence’s College international students are encouraged to be self-directed lifelong learners who exhibit a growth mindset and form positive relationships with others.

Our College offers a broad program of both subject offerings and enrichment experiences to cater for the learning needs of all students.  Each student is challenged to attain their personal level of Academic Excellence and their performance is tracked and supported as they journey through the College.

Student’s English language proficiency is tested annually to ensure their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills are classroom ready for their year level of study.  From these results teachers modify their teaching practices to best support the student in their classroom.  Where required students will receive extra support to enhance their English language skills.

As part of student’s enrolment, they are provided with before and after school tutoring delivered by our classroom teachers and past scholars.  This is a wonderful opportunity for students to gain further support with their homework, assignments, study and to clarify content taught in the classroom.  In addition to this tutoring, additional tutoring is provided specifically for international students.

In their senior years, students are allocated a mentor who supports them through their senior journey including tracking of academic results, planning for university entrance, monitoring study habits.

Our Gifted and Talented Program enables academically gifted students to progress via accelerated programs and offerings.

Further information of our curriculum offerings and opportunities for personal academic excellence are available here.
