Gold Coast

The Gold Coast is a city coming of age. It is a place of opportunity that, over the next decade, will transform into a globally-recognised city while retaining its enviable lifestyle and stunning natural environment.

Located on the edge of the Asia-Pacific rim, with access to two international airports, the Gold Coast is perfectly positioned as a destination for study and vocational training, research, careers and employment. 

The Gold Coast is home to over half a million people and offers the greatest educational choice of any city of our size.

Education and training contributes more than $1.7 billion to the local economy and with 25,000 international students from more than 130 different countries studying here, the Gold Coast is growing in popularity as a study destination both nationally and internationally.

The city has three research-intensive universities, which are among the leaders in their field; a range of technical and training colleges; and some of Australia’s best public and independent schools. In 2016 it was rated number one out of the seven Best Student Cities by the Beach in the QS Best Student Cities.
