When you think about all the places international students head to, major cities in the USA, Europe and UK may come to mind. But there is one city in Australia that is gaining a reputation as a global education destination – Brisbane, Australia’s new world city.
Brisbane is the capital of the state of Queensland. It’s Australia’s third largest city by population (after Sydney and Melbourne) and is widely recognised as Australia’s new world city. With a population of 2 million and over 1,100 people moving to south-east Queensland every week, Brisbane is one of the fastest growing regions in the nation.
More than 80,000 international students from 40 different nations call Brisbane home. Approximately 80 percent of international students studying in Queensland have chosen its capital city, Brisbane, to pursue their academic goals.
The city has a highly sophisticated education infrastructure with a growing global reputation as a centre of excellence in medical research and development, technology and innovation, and environmental sustainability. Brisbane is close to the northern tropics in Queensland, and this keeps the city at the frontier of emerging research fields such as the biosciences and tropical sciences.
What really sets Brisbane apart though, is its diverse education offering. With 190 internationally registered education institutions, you’ll find comprehensive undergraduate and postgraduate programs, vocational education, English language courses and schooling, as well as specialised studies in chosen fields.
