Introduction

Brisbane is one of those cities that are always to be changing, without ever losing its essential heart and character! It is the capital city of Queensland and is located on the Brisbane river on the east coast and it is the third largest city in Australia.

Brisbane, Queensland

A little background

Brisbane enjoys a subtropical climate with hot, humid and rainy summers and cool to warm, dry winters. From white sandy beaches to tropical rainforests, Brisbane is one of the most beautiful and relaxed city in Australia. It has one of the world’s most agreeable climates, with an average 300 days of the year consisting of clear blue skies and warm temperatures.

Brisbane’s prime location is in easy reach between the popular Gold Coast and Sunshine Coast, beyond its landmarks such as the 1920s City Hall, and the Treasury Building’s graceful colonnades, Brisbane’s major attractions are outdoors. Cool down under a canopy of subtropical foliage at the Brisbane Botanic Gardens. Gaze at contemporary art at the gallery of Modern Art (GOMA), dinosaurs at the Queensland Museum, and skyscrapers from the gently revolving wheel of Brisbane and make sure to fill the cuteness quota at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary, home to koalas and kangaroos.

Describing Brisbane as positive, generous and optimistic, Brisbane is Australia’s New World City. With affordable housing, an affordable cost of living, access to world class education institutions and reliable public transport and infrastructure, living in Brisbane is an easy choice to make.

On-Campus Support

With NIET, learning online doesn’t mean learning alone. Our study coach policy provides every student with a single point of contact for the duration of their enrolment, ensuring they always have access to the support they need to get the most from their online studies.

With a variety of contact options, including virtual class, email, telephone appointment, live chat, video conference and the portal, your study coach or trainer is always on hand to assist you in any way they can. And for extra support, students also have the option of joining our interactive support webinars and/or regular workshops to discuss course work and the challenges they face with trainers and their study coaches and peers.

Financial Matters

The cost of living in Brisbane is cheaper than other major Australian cities, such as Sydney or Melbourne, but is still quite high by global standards (Brisbane was ranked the 21st most expensive city in the world in 2014 by the Economist Intelligence Unit).

Within Brisbane, the cost of living can vary quite significantly depending on things like where you choose to live (suburbs closer to the city centre/CBD tend to be more expensive); what form of accommodation
you choose to live in (a room in a share house will typically be cheaper than renting an apartment or house yourself); how you choose to get around (public transport may be cheaper or more expensive than running a car, depending on where you live); and where you shop or eat (buying your own food from farmers’ markets or supermarkets will be cheaper than frequently eating at restaurants).

Employment Options

NIET provides a great opportunity for students, recent graduates and professionals to learn on-the-job in their chosen academic discipline from Australia and the world.

We prepare today’s learners for tomorrow’s workplaces. Successful candidates will be offered the opportunity for a position to join the NIET family.

Personal Health

International students in Australia must have Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC) to cover the entire period of their stay. It is a health cover that is required for your stay in Australia and should have been organised during your visa arrangements.

OSHC covers in and out of hospital medical assistance, prescription medications and emergency ambulance assistance. Please find out the extent of your coverage to prevent incurring any unwanted charges.

Legal Support

NIET provides counsellors. If you need assistance, please seek one today.

Accomodation

There are many options for student accomodations. You can either buy a house or consider these options: On-campus accomodations, purpose-built student accomodations, independent renting of a house or apartment and home stays.

Some institutions have accommodation on campus. Typically, these are multi-room residences where a bedroom is provided with a single bed, desk, chair, storage space and a shared bathroom.

Purpose-built student accomodations are specially built for students from any institution. There is a range of options available – from studio apartments to shared rooms with communal facilities.

Independent renting of a house/apartment gives you the option of renting the entire apartment. There are 1 bedroom apartments, 2 bedroom apartments and >2 bedroom apartments. These usually require a bond, which is used as security and is usually equivalent to 4 weeks’ rent amount. It covers money owing at the end of the tenancy for any damage to the property. For more information, search ‘Residential Tenancies Authority’ and read up on bonds.

Home Stay with an Australian family is the truest way to experience an Australian life and culture. Home Stays usually include breakfast, dinner and a packed lunch(if required) and students would just be responsible for the costs of laundry and transport. Rest assured, Home Stays are safe as long as your provider meets the minimum Australian homestay standards.

Getting Around

Getting around Brisbane by Trains, Buses and Ferries.

To get around by public transport, simply use Google Maps or download the Translink App on your mobile. It provides detailed information on how to get to your destination. Don’t forget to get a GoCard! GoCards are available at any 7-eleven stores, Queensland Rail Station ticket offices, fare machines at G:link and busway stations as well as on board Brisbane City Council CityCat and Ferries.

International students are entitled to concession fares – 50% discount on full adult fare. To attain it, you have to apply for a Tertiary Transport Concession Card which must be completed through your institution.

Trains are the best commute option for suburbs located far out from the city. Most train routes run every 20 minutes to half and hour, and depart hourly late at night.

Buses in Brisbane take you from CBD area to the border of NSW. Inner city bus services are very frequent, arriving every 5-15 minutes. On partying nights such as Fridays and Saturdays, Nightlink buses run from the city to Fortitude Valley and surrounding suburbs from 1am to 5am.

The CityCats, Brisbane’s Ferry.
It goes around Brisbane River, from NorthShore Hamilton Ferry Terminal to the University of Queensland, stopping at key points along the river. Free CityHoppers and cross-river ferries are also available. In approximation, CityCats run every 15 minutes, CityHoppers every 30 minutes and cross-river ferries every 10-15 minutes.
