Why Study Aged care in Brisbane?

Brisbane is fast making a name for itself as the place for students.

It’s the perfect city if you want to study and live at the same time. We have great weather and countless attractions that you can visit and explore during your time here.

Are you a local or international student keen to get the full experience while studying? If so, studying in Brisbane is the choice for you. In addition to the city itself, Brisbane is also close to natural landmarks and fantastic beaches just outside the city limits.

Not to mention, it’s also home to some of Australia’s best education institutions, including Academia’s Brisbane campus!

While classroom learning is important, when studying Aged care, an aspect of your training that is just as important as theoretical study is your work placement.

There’s no better way to get ready to work with children than through hands-on training and experience!
