Brisbane ist zwar eine sehr schöneStadt, in der man innerhalb und ausserhalb viel unternehmen kann, jedoch ist es keine allzu attraktive Stadt. Man musste schon mehrere Sachen in der Umgebung unternehmen an Wochenenden, um nicht gelangweilt zu sein. Trotzdem ist das Leben in Brisbane sehr relaxed, die Leute sind überall freundlich und es ist eine Stadt, in der man sich einfach wohlfühlen kann! Trotz allem sehr zu empfehlen.

Host family
Thanks to a very good network of host families, students have the opportunity to stay with an Australian family, in a single room with half board provided. Staying with a host family is an excellent opportunity to experience Australian culture first hand while practising the language naturally! The families sometimes welcome other students of a different mother tongue which will allow you to make new friends and connections with ease.

Guest house (Minimum 4 weeks, ages 18 and over)
Accommodation in a student guest house is ideal for meeting other students and living independently. Our partner school offers accommodation in a guest house, located around 25 minutes' walk from the course centre. The guest house is located in the south of Brisbane, close to public transport and Southbank train station. You'll stay in a single room and share the bathroom. Bed linen and towels are provided and the place is cleaned once a week. From Monday to Friday, an evening meal will be served, with breakfast available every day, and the opportunity to enjoy a barbecue on the weekend with the other students. A kitchen, including a fridge, a coffee and tea machine, and microwaves, is available. You will have access to a (paid) laundry room and a telephone. Internet access is also at an extra charge.

Student One Apartment (Minimum stay: 4 weeks, ages 18 and over)
Just a 2-minute walk from Kaplan Brisbane, in the heart of the city centre, these modern apartments offer single en-suite studios and twin rooms, fitted with bed, TV, wardrobe and desk. Wi-Fi is free, but bed linen and towels are not provided (you can buy or rent them on site!). You’ll be responsible for cleaning your room, and laundry facilities are available at an extra cost. Enjoy the communal areas with your new friends: the kitchen, the outdoor BBQ area, the games room, the cinema, the study area, the free bike hire, the gym and the swimming pool!

Iglu Brisbane City student residence (Minimum stay: 4 weeks, ages 18 and over)
At this residence, your student experience could not get any cooler – transport, shopping and entertainment are at your fingertips! Kaplan Brisbane is only 12 minutes away on foot, and the closest bus stop is just 1 minute away! You’ll stay in a single room with private bathroom, free Wi-Fi, a bed, a wardrobe and a desk. Bed linen and towels are not provided, and you’ll have to clean your own room. You’ll be able to enjoy communal areas such as a shared kitchen, study room, lounge with TV area, outdoor BBQ space, cinema, gym, and bike storage.

Numerous activities are offered as part of the school's leisure programme. At weekends, you'll have a large choice of outings to choose from, and excursions to places of interest around Brisbane (Gold Coast, Fraser Island, Sunshine Coast, to name but a few!). Social activities, sports and parties are also frequently available after classes.
