The AIC Difference

The Australian Islamic College is proud to offer an environment where each student can tap into their individual potential and attain academic excellence while integrating the principles of Islam into their everyday lives. Our teachers work hard to provide the highest Islamic moral guidance along with quality education. The idea is to prepare students for further education and equip them to contribute to society without compromising on their religious beliefs.
