Are you thinking about studying childcare in Brisbane? Here’s why living and studying in Brisbane is great for students.

Why Study Childcare in Brisbane?

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

Its ever-increasing popularity is due to its smaller population (while still offering that big-city feel), as well as its laid back vibe.

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!

Public Transport

Brisbane’s public transport network is accessible, affordable, and convenient.

Located in the central hub of Brisbane’s CBD, our campus is within walking distance to a plethora of public transport options, including buses, trains and more.

Easy public transport makes it easy to not only get in and out of the city, but around it, too! Explore BRisbane CBD between classes and discover your new favourite cafes, restaurants, and more.

Great bicycle culture

Public transport isn’t the only way you can get around while studying childcare at our Brisbane campus - if you’re not getting around on a train, chances are you’ll be on a bike!

Brisbane’s most popular bike-sharing station is CityCycle. In addition to making it easy and affordable to get around, riding a bike is also plain fun, and the perfect way to get around the city.

The bicycle culture is cheap, convenient, and it keeps you fit!

Safe city

For anyone moving to a new city, safety is one of the major considerations you have to make.

Brisbane is a safe city to work, live, and study, while our friendly folk are ready to welcome you with open arms.

A safe economic and social environment, Brisbane is well-suited to students. Its relaxed vibe makes it an emerging destination for both international and local students!


Brisbane is proud to welcome a diverse and multicultural population. Immerse yourself in cultures and traditions from all over the world when you study and live in Brisbane.

Brisbane is home to a huge range of different communities and nationalities.

As such, the city is full of a variety of food and activities all year-round.

Why study childcare with Academia?

Childcare courses online in Brisbane

Academia also provides students the opportunity to study a portion of their childcare courses online. By joining classes in real-time from home, students can stay engaged, motivated, and focused. Flexible learning is a core part of Academia’s mission to ensure students get the most from their classes.

While classroom learning is important, when studying childcare, 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!

Each of our nationally recognised childcare courses in Brisbane includes work placement, allowing you to further refine your skills and put your learning into practice.
