  • scholarship opportunities
  • international study links

Beyond State High asks students to think about their future career ideas, share their ideas with others and be prepared to engage in their chosen field following Year 12. We are not asking students to choose one career idea and stay with that for the rest of their lives; we are supporting students to create an informed action plan for what they wish to do next, what are they prepared to go and do following Year 12.

We want students to confidently go and be great ambassadors for Brisbane State High with the skills, knowledge and desire to positively interact with the world around them and continue to learn and grow from their experiences.
