Homestay program for international students
Queensland Academies Science, Mathematics and Technology Campus is one of three state schools for highly-capable students in Years 10 to 12. The campus is located in Toowong, Queensland, Australia.
Queensland Academies Science, Mathematics and Technology Campus benefits from a unique partnership with the University of Queensland. Through this partnership, students are offered a number of exclusive opportunities commencing with our Engagement Program for our incoming cohort through to study courses which lead to additional bonus tertiary selection rank points when successfully completed.
At QASMT we believe strongly in ensuring a smooth transition into our school and as such we have developed a three-part program over the year preceding student commencement which helps them to become engaged in the exciting opportunities that we are able to offer. The Engagement Program consists of a one day incursion at the University of Queensland where students engage with our staff and student ambassadors in a range of science opportunities. Students then spend time at our campus interacting in classes with our students and teachers in real lessons in subjects across the IB curriculum.
Our Engagement Program culminates in a two-day camp at a residential college at the University of Queensland. This camp gives our students the opportunity to bond in a real university setting and prepare them for their first day at the campus.
Our program has proven to be very successful as it allows students to meet their new peers and develop friendships and support networks prior to coming to the commencing in their new environment.
