Brisbane: The perfect place to study abroad

Brisbane, the capital of Queensland, is home to more than 85,000 international students. Its world-ranking universities and education institutes offer programs for all levels of international study. Brisbane is the perfect place to call home while you study abroad. Aside from the low cost of living and 300 days of sunshine per year, Brisbane is a warm and welcoming city, hosting the Lord Mayor's International Student Friendship Ceremony which has extended the hand of friendship to more than 10,000 students.

Why study in Brisbane?

It's the capital of the Sunshine State

Queensland isn't called the Sunshine State for no reason. With more than 300 days of sunshine per year, Brisbane summers are famous for the sub-tropical humid heat cooled by beautiful afternoon storms. Winter days rarely dip below 20°C, and there's nothing quite like an afternoon nap in the winter sun.

In between, spring and autumn are particularly popular with students, especially around October when the jacarandas begin to bloom across the city – despite them being a sign that exams are looming.
