The University has welcomed international students for more than 50 years and values their many contributions to the academic experience. This involves a great deal more than just working towards an internationally-respected degree. It also includes opportunities for friendship, comradeship and personal growth.

The LLB program offered by the School of Law has students from all regions of the world, including Singapore, Malaysia, The United States of America, Canada, Papua New Guinea, the People’s Republic of China, Germany and many more. Click here to see a short video about Brisbane.
