International Students

Matthew Flinders Anglican College is accredited to host international students in all year levels (CRICOS Provider No. 01748C).

Our College, located in Buderim on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast, presents a beautiful window to the Australian way of life. It is just one hour north of the state’s capital Brisbane, with easy access to local and nationwide attractions. The Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s premier tourist destinations, boasting stunning white sand surf beaches and a charming hinterland.

It is a wonderful environment for water sports, including canoeing, fishing, kayaking, surfing, sailing and swimming, and is also rich with art and music. Our summer temperatures range from 17–30C with a temperate winter climate of 10–22C.
