Beautiful, Affordable and Welcoming
Brisbane is Australia’s New World City. It has a population of 2.2 million people, making it the third largest city in Australia. Here are three great reasons to choose Brisbane as your study destination:
- It is a multicultural hub that provides students a high quality, accessible lifestyle. Brisbane has more sunny days per year than any other Australian capital city. It is close to world-famous beaches, awe inspiring rainforests and some of Australia’s best shopping, cafés, and lifestyle centres.
- Brisbane is one of Australia’s most affordable places to study. You'll find that tuition fees provide students with value for money and cost of living expenses are more affordable compared to other developed countries.
- Brisbane is a safe and friendly city with a beautiful climate, outdoor lifestyle and a generous community spirit. In fact, Australia’s low crime rates make it one of the safest countries compared with almost anywhere in the world.
Australian Catholic University (ACU) has a beautiful and historic campus in Brisbane. We invite you to join us in Brisbane for your further studies.
