Education Queensland International (EQI) develops and promotes programs for international students with a secure and welcoming place to live and practise their English language skills in a real home setting. Most students attend high school but the length of their stay in Queensland will vary.

a clean, safe and friendly home
private bedroom and suitable storage space for their clothes and personal belongings
