Student Life

Students will participate in the daily life of the university the same way any other student would. Clubs, sports, plays, concerts and student life activities are all available to you. Brisbane also offers over 1,200 km of walkways, paths and bikeways, as well as museums, dining, shopping, and festivals. Brisbane is also a central location for travel to the Sunshine Coast and only an hour from the Gold Coast, Surfer's Paradise and the Scenic Rim.

Students live with Australian families in Brisbane and its surrounds, enabling them to experience Australian life firsthand. Generally two or more students stay in each homestay. Families are urged to integrate students into normal family life as much as possible.  When appropriate, students should expect to help out around the house and plan to be home for most meals
