2 – Cheapest and affordable cities in Queensland

As a student, one of the biggest worries is the cost of living. This includes tuition fees, accommodation and day to day general expenses. However, Queensland is home to two of the cheapest and affordable cities to study and live in; Brisbane and Gold Coast.

Gold Coast is ranked 1st for affordability in Australia and 84th globally as one of the best student cities. Gold coast is quite similar to Brisbane in terms of affordability, however, it is a little cheaper. Weekly expenditure for a student would range between AU$480-$512. Rent in Gold Coast is 40% lower than that of Sydney and it also has one of the lowest Undergraduate fees in comparison to other Australian cities.

Brisbane is the 4th cheapest city to live in Australia. Living costs are lower than any major Australian cities such as Sydney. It was also ranked 22nd in “Best student cities in 2019”. Students would have to spend around AU$500-$533 a week including rent, food, transport and general expenses whereas, in Sydney it would range between AU$600-$700 per week.

It is also important to keep in mind, that as a student with restricted finances, Queensland is a very reasonable state to live in. It has universities offering top-class education at low tuition fees such as that of Griffith University.

3 – Cultural Diversity in Queensland

Studying abroad allows students to  meet individuals from various countries, backgrounds and cultures. Apart from the sunny, beautiful tourist destinations in Queensland, it is also extremely diverse in culture. Therefore, if you are someone who sees diversity as an important factor in where you’d like to study and live in, then Queensland is the place to be, as you can reap the benefits of a multicultural environment. The state is abundant in different cultures and with people who are not restricted to adopt one particular lifestyle. They are open minded people from different walks of life and enjoy forming friendships that are long lasting. It is very easy to find a wide range of food and activities representing almost any country in the world.

The Government has an incessant need to celebrate cultural diversity and multicultural events. Since Queensland is recognized as a state with a long history of migration, The Queensland Government is committed to ensuring that all Queenslanders can participate and celebrate the society, whether born in or migrated to the state. As a result, they have placed the Queensland Cultural Diversity Policy which focuses on improving and supporting the continued growth of strong culturally diverse communities in the state. Further, $1.3 million was used to fund over 150 multicultural events held throughout the state in 2019 as Queensland is home to people from about 220 different countries who speak over 180 languages and identify with over 110 different faiths.

One city in particular stands out as one of the most diverse student cities based on QS Best Student Cities 2019:

Brisbane – is ranked 9th in the top 10 most diverse student cities in the world since a large number of the student population comes from countries outside of Australia. Thereby, making it one of the ultimate choices for students who are looking to gain a top class education and embrace different cultural experiences.

4 – Part-time work in Queensland
