The Queensland College of Music welcomes International students who wish to study in Australia.
QCM is a family environment, which gives personalised attention and assistance to each and every international student. It is a specialised college that cultivates a supportive and family focused environment, that, as well as guiding students through their studies will assist students with accommodation, transport, work experience, visas and much more.
The college specialises in music and in managing and improving English skills for International students. Learning is conducted in small groups with specialised training and one to one tuition in the students chosen instrument. Students will work with experienced teachers that are working musicians, performers and business people working within the local, national and international music industry.
QCM offers pathways to university and assistance to students in completing university applications and practicing for auditions.
Highly skilled music teachers, many who are graduates from the Conservatorium of Music, as well as vocational educators and industry advisers, will train you. All teachers have recognised proficiency in their specialist instrument, have participated in many public performances, and work in a variety of areas of the Music Industry. Many have worked as musicians overseas, and some are recognised recording artists or event and artist managers.
Most of QCM’s competitors are larger and do not specialise in Music or offer dedicated English courses. QCM is unique in its family and friendly environment and care and attention to the needs of its International students. Extra support will be given by expert staff that have years of experience working in the International Education sector.
