Student Lifestyle

When people think of studying on the Gold Coast, the sand and the surf are likely two highlights that come to mind. It is without doubt that the stunning coastline is something to be celebrated, however, that is only one of the many fantastic attributes of the lifestyle here. The seaside location is complemented by a dynamic arts and culture vibe, desirable year-round climate, world-class education institutions and growing job opportunities. The Gold Coast is a welcoming, friendly and safe city for students and a desirable destination to live, study and play.
