Life in Australia
Brisbane is Australia's third largest city with a population of approximately 1.6 million. With its
near-perfect climate year-round
, Brisbane has developed into a lively, cosmopolitan city with several interesting districts, a good street cafe scene, a great riverside park, and a busy cultural calendar.
The inner city is beautifully shaped by the Brisbane River and offers a
wide range of attractions such as parklands, recreation areas, museums, art galleries, malls, cafés, restaurants and night clubs
. The famous beaches of the Gold Coast and the Sunshine Coast are only a short drive from Brisbane.
Located in the south-east corner of Queensland, Brisbane has a sub-tropical climate, with sunny hot and humid summers (December to February); and cool, mild and dry winters (June to August). Queensland is known as "The Sunshine State" where students can take advantage of the many days of sunshine and blue sky by sightseeing and joining outdoor activities.
Sydney is the largest Australian city and also the most popular for overseas visitors. It has a
world famous harbour and Opera House
more than 30 spectacular beaches
like the famous Bondi Beach. With a population of over 4 million people, this trendy city is a modern, vibrant and international center offering many options for shopping, dining and recreation. It is an ideal city to live and to study English.
The climate in Sydney is temperate, which means you can enjoy Sydney beaches and outdoor activities all year round. The wettest months are March and May; the coldest month is July and the hottest months are January and February. The average summer temperature is around 25°C, but sometimes it gets hotter than that!

OSHC - Health Coverage
Overseas Student Health Cover (OSHC)
is a compulsory requirement for a student visa. ILSC can arrange the purchase of OSHC for all students enrolled at our school. Vvisit
for more information.
Students who bring dependent family members to Australia are responsible for their financial needs. School age children (5-16 years old) living in Australia for more than three months are required to attend school full-time. Students are required to pay full fees for their children in both public and private schools.
International students and dependents may be eligible to work part-time during their period of study. However, finding a job may be difficult as there is strong competition from Australians and other overseas students. Students should not expect to cover their tuition fees or other expenses from part-time employment. Students who cannot afford to cover all their expenses during their stay in Australia are strongly advised to postpone their studies.
