  • COURSE LEVEL RECOMMENDATIONS
    ISA offers course level recommendations for the courses listed below. Please note that the course level recommendations are based on Queensland University of Technology (QUT) unit (course) codes. All QUT unit codes consist of a three-letter abbreviation, followed by three numerals. The first two letters indicate the faculty or school administering the unit. The third letter indicates the level of the course in which the unit is normally taught, (students should look for letter B, indicating that the unit is part of an undergraduate degree). The first digit of the unit code numeral indicates the year of the level that the course is taught. A code numeral that starts with the number1 is appropriate for students in their first year of studies, 2 second year, and 3 third year. Units designed for the second and third year of undergraduate degree studies are recommended as upper division. These ISA recommendations are intended to facilitate the determination of course equivalencies by advisors and credential evaluators at participants' U.S. home institutions.

ISA provides a sample list of courses available on this program; however, for the most up-to-date course listings, please visit the QUT Study Abroad and Exchange Unit Search, linked below.

Housing

As a resident in ISA housing you will have the opportunity to experience aspects of the Australian lifestyle that are inaccessible to the average visitor to Brisbane. Step out your door to explore not only your campus, but also the unique neighborhoods, local markets, and city happenings that will have you feeling right at home in no time. With an open and adaptable mind, the experience of living in another culture can be highly rewarding.

Housing is provided on all ISA programs in Australia at an additional cost. Apartment accommodation ranges between $4,250-$5,600, without meals (subject to change). We strive to match your housing preferences with our available accommodation; however, housing preference requests cannot be guaranteed.

Apartment Without Meals

Apartment living in Brisbane places you at the doorstep of city happenings within the lively neighborhood of South Bank while still being conveniently located a 15-20 minute walk from the QUT campus. Rooms are twin share (same gender) with ensuite bathroom in a 16 person, co-ed flat OR single with ensuite bathroom in a 5 person, co-ed flat. Kitchen and living room spaces are shared between flat-mates. Flats are comprised of international students as well as local students attending various universities in Brisbane. Linens, kitchenware, and an Internet package are included; however, meals are not included.

THERE’S MORE TO DISCOVER WITH ISA

Enjoy a weekend getaway to "Straddie," the world's second largest sand island, and a favorite destination among locals. Soak up the sub-tropical climate and experience one of many unique recreational, historical, and cultural activities that the island provides, including sand-boarding, kayaking, and learning about the distinctive culture of the Quandamooka people. Most importantly, savor the beauty and slow-paced lifestyle of this local gem.

Springbrook National Park and Natural Bridge

Situated within the Gold Coast Hinderland and World Heritage listed Gondwana Rainforest is Springbrook National Park and Natural Bridge.

It boasts impressive waterfalls, an abundance of native vegetation and wildlife, and some of the oldest forests in Australia.

Cultural Activities in Brisbane

The ISA on-site team encourages you to explore the city and culture of Brisbane. The team facilitates this by offering a robust calendar of events that showcases what makes Brisbane special.
