The History of Nudgee International College

Due to demand, a Fast Track High School Program was initiated with articulation programs into several universities. Our expansion continued into 1998 and the new Nudgee International College was formed, diversifying further to include tertiary programs, offering Certificate and Diploma courses through another registered arm of our College known as Nudgee Training Institute. In August of 1998 the new International College building was completed at a cost of 2.5million dollars. Student numbers continued to increase as NIC continued to diversify into programs such as short term Tertiary programs, Study Tours and Sporting Tours.


Conveniently located only 10 minutes from Brisbane International Airport and 20 minutes from the city centre; Nudgee International College (NIC) offers the highest quality educational opportunities on a beautiful 148 hectare, fully equipped campus.

Brisbane, the capital city of Queensland, is famous for its beautiful natural environment, warm subtropical climate and healthy outdoor lifestyle. Surrounded by parks, gardens and close to the beaches of the Gold & Sunshine Coasts, Brisbane is a safe and modern cosmopolitan city with much to offer international visitors. Exciting attractions, sidewalk cafes and a bustling central business district make Brisbane a popular travel and study destination


Studying in Australia may be different to studying in your own country. The Australian Education System encourages independent study and you will be responsible for completing your homework tasks and assignments. Formal school study is usually for 5 hours per day but in addition, students are expected to study independently.


NIC offers both General English Courses and Academic Preparation Courses. NIC facilitates a seamless pathway from ELICOS through to primary and secondary education. To ensure a high level of education is maintained, NIC is partnered with some of Queensland's best private day and boarding schools. Following ELICOS studies at NIC, students may enter one of the NIC partner schools to complete their High School studies.


Nudgee International College offers English for Secondary School Preparation (ELICOS), IELTS preparation and other English programs. A range of levels are offered from Beginner to Advanced and international students are expertly taught Speaking and Listening, Grammar, Vocabulary Building, and Academic Reading and Writing Skills.
