A message from our Mayor
WELCOME TO AUSTRALIA'S GOLD COAST
Whether you are an international or domestic student, as Mayor of the City of Gold Coast, it gives me great pleasure to welcome you to our city. Australia’s Gold Coast is not only famous for sun, surf and sand, but the city offers the greatest education choice of any city of its size, with ongoing investment strongly positioning us as an ‘Education City’.
The education and training industry provides employment for close to 18,000 Gold Coast residents, so it is important to have Study Gold Coast – the city’s peak education and training industry body – providing support to both organisations and students alike. I am pleased to say the last decade has been a stunning story of growth in student numbers, facilities, courses and research.
Joining the tens of thousands of local students commencing this year, more than 32,000 international students from 130 countries will call the Gold Coast their ‘second home’.
The physical investment has been matched by growing research excellence at the city’s universities, with significant increase in research funding, the attraction of world class researchers and growth in higher degree students.
Thank you for choosing the Gold Coast as your destination city to study in and please feel free to contact Study Gold Coast directly for all of your education enquiries.
