Student Stories

"Brisbane has been so amazing, I wish I could have studied longer. There was always so much to do. In one week I went to the cinema, a chocolate tour and to Movie World! The city is filled with fun. Even when my friends and I would just hang around outside it was exciting. My experience in Brisbane was amazing, unique and always interesting."

Student Stories

"I decided to study with ILSC school because their location is really convenient for us as international students. I remember that when I came to Brisbane, my English was zero. And now I can communicate, I can express what I feel and understand what people want to tell me."
