When it comes to embarking on an Australian study adventure, one of the biggest decisions you might face is … where will I study?
Our two campuses are located on the Southeast coast of Queensland, about one hour apart. We could provide a long list of benefits to living in the “Sunshine State” (year-long warmth, outdoor lifestyle, friendly locals …), but one of the most noteworthy benefits is our low cost-of-living in comparison to other Australian cities.
We ran an analysis on three capital cities – Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane (Queensland’s capital). Have a read below
General data shows that on average, it’s $161.35 cheaper to live in Queensland per week than it is in NSW (over a year, that’s a saving of around $8,390.20!)
So, what can you expect to pay to live day-to-day in Brisbane? According to IDP Australia (International Education Specialists), the average cost for a single person to live comfortably in Brisbane is $400 - $750 per week, depending on your living expenses. You can refer to this calculator to get a rough idea based on your individual circumstances.
There’s a reason Brisbane is one of the world’s most livable cities! Not only do Queenslanders benefit from a lower cost of living than other Australian states, we also enjoy 300 days of sunshine per year and a comfortably warm climate – perfect for a relaxed and social lifestyle.
