GOLD COAST Australia

The Ultimate Study Abroad Experience

Study Abroad with The Education Abroad Network (TEAN) on the Gold Coast, Australia. There's the appeal of the sand, sun and nightlife, but when you study abroad on the Gold Coast, you'll realize that there is a lot more to this region than just the beach. The Gold Coast hinterland is home to two of Queensland's best national parks. Hike your way through lush rainforest to pristine mountain pools, then head to the beach to catch one of the best surf breaks on the coast at Burleigh heads before spending the evening clubbing in Surfer's Paradise. Oh – and this region is also home to Australia's huge theme parks! Experience a semester on the Gold Coast!

Gold Coast Program Highlights

  • With two universities available, including Bond University and Griffith University, you can select an academic program and campus setting to suit your needs.
  • Experience living on the beach in our high-quality, ideally located off-campus apartments.
  • Live on the Gold Coast, known for its ideal climate, great beaches and exciting nightlife.
  • Explore the Great Barrier Reef and tropical far north Australia during your comprehensive six-day Orientation Program, with a week of adventure and learning
  • Experience an alternative Spring Break with our optional Thailand or New Zealand South Island excursions (Griffith University only).

 

 
 
 
My study abroad experience was the time of my life. It was filled with adventure, whether it was a 15-minute bus ride to a hidden beach, local coffee shop or a 3-hour plane ride that took me into a different climate. My time was packed with opportunities to explore the unknown, take chances that might be scary but then rewarded with gained knowledge. There wasn't a day that passed where I didn't learn something new. Courses I took taught me facts and how things work in theory while experiences taught me how the culture operated.
