Life in Brisbane
BNIT offers international students the opportunity to study and gain internationally competitive education and training in a safe, clean city with a low cost of living.
Brisbane is the capital city of Queensland which is known nationally as the Sunshine State. Brisbane is located in the south eastern corner of Queensland on the coastal strip between the Pacific Ocean and the Great Dividing Range.
Brisbane's sub-tropical climate is perfect for an outdoor lifestyle, with daytime temperatures ranging from an average of 30 degrees Celsius in summer to 14 degrees Celsius in winter.
The city has open parklands and public spaces, world-class sporting facilities, cafes and the Brisbane River at its centre.
Less than half an hour from the city centre is Moreton Bay and its islands. In its calm waters, you can enjoy a variety of water sports. If you prefer the surf, the famous beaches and resorts of the Sunshine and Gold Coasts are just over an hour's drive from the city.
Hosting students from throughout the world including Asia, South America and Europe, BNIT understands the challenges and difficulties that students face when they are away from their native countries, families and friends.
Beginning a new life in a foreign country can be confusing and the information presented in this section of our website is intended to help you with what to expect and where to go for help if needed.
