While Brisbane is Australia's third largest city, it has a very relaxed lifestyle, no doubt aided by the subtropical climate, the meandering Brisbane River, laid back cafe culture and friendly locals. But this is no sleepy hollow. Brisbane is cosmopolitan, with world class art galleries and a great live music scene. Known by locals as Bris-vegas, this is the quintessential small town in a big city!

"Studying abroad in Brisbane opened my eyes to a new world, new possibilities, and new opportunities. I was exposed to different cultures by meeting other exchange students from all over the world. I like the fact that TEAN helped me mentally prepare for this semester and were there for me every step of the way. Everything I was nervous about before I left was reassured and in order and it made my experience more enjoyable because I felt so safe through TEAN. Because of this program, I feel like I have the courage to go to another country and do anything."
