IES COLLEGE

BUILDING ON SUCCESS

ABOUT US

For over 20 years, IES College has successfully transitioned more than 10,000 students into their chosen undergraduate degrees at leading Australian universities.

Building on the success of our university preparation programs, we have expanded our education offerings to a senior high school program for year 10, 11 and 12 students. In an environment where diversity is embraced, the educational learning program will support, nurture and challenge students while preparing them for success in an increasingly complex world.

IES COLLEGE PHILOSOPHY AND AIMS

Our Mission
Our students engage in critical analysis of their own learning journey. We inspire them to seek out the skills they require to understand their place in a diverse world. We are committed to the empowerment of students so they, in turn, serve to empower others in their local and global community.

Our Values

  • Growth from a place of safety
  • Individuality through inclusion
  • Student determined success

Our Vision

Our vision is to inspire students to be passionate and empowered learners, confidently developing their individual gifts to serve in a global world.

 

DIVERSE AND MULTICULTURAL

A MULTICULTURAL IDENTITY

A seven-storey mural by premier Australian and Chinese street artists spanning the façade of 495 Boundary Street Spring Hill, stands as a sign of the diversity and inclusion central to our school identity.

 

WHAT MAKES IES COLLEGE DIFFERENT?

INVESTING IN EDUCATION

As a not-for-profit organisation IES has a clear mandate to re-invest in education and powerful engagement opportunities that enrich the lives of our students and the community.

We live our passion to improve social cohesion in Australian schools, communities and workplaces. Working in partnership with SBS, we have developed ground-breaking Cultural Competence Programs that are now being embraced in workplaces around the country. We’re proud to be leading in this field and our expertise flows through all our College learning environments.

COMMITMENT TO AUSTRALIA’S FIRST NATION PEOPLE

We believe in honouring Indigenous Australia and providing genuine opportunities for our students to learn more about Australian Indigenous people and their stories and cultures.

AWARD-WINNING

IES is proud of the reputation we’ve built for delivering high-quality, innovative educational experiences and services. We’ve been awarded several Queensland State Government awards recognising our exceptional client service, including the Best Pathway Program and Outstanding International Student Support awards. We have also been honoured with nomination in several industry awards, including the Lord Mayor’s Business Award for Excellence in International Education Delivery.

SMALL AND PERSONALISED CLASSES

Bigger isn’t always better, and at IES College, we are proud that our small size and small class sizes provide a learning environment where every student has an important place and can make a positive contribution. We support our students to reach their potential, feel safe and be heard. Our teaching and professional staff work alongside our students to provide encouragement and challenges for their young minds.

NO UNIFORMS

At IES College, students are not required to wear uniforms and reap the benefits of extended personal freedoms and responsibilities in regard to their learning. We treat our students as young adults, and as such, the college respects and encourages our students to choose what they wear to school based on their individual style and an agreed set of dress standards.
