Greater Springfield is a fully master planned city founded around the interconnecting pillars of education, health and technology. The Education City precinct provides a central nucleus for education, embraces the vision for lifelong learning opportunities, and forms another intended driver of the Greater Springfield masterplan that aims to generate one job for every three residents.
Education City represents a living, studying, and recreating hub incorporating education facilities with specially designed park areas for study sessions and relaxing meeting places, and student and staff living areas – all interconnected with the Springfield central CBD and the Orion Springfield Central 7 shopping centre. The specialised precinct is a place where all forms of education come together to show that learning comes first, and to offer local, state and international students learning opportunities designed just for them.
At Greater Springfield, we pride ourselves on fostering an environment that encourages lifelong learning for people of all ages. Greater Springfield aims to enhance and enrich the entire region through world class education facilities and leading technology – allowing students, of all ages the opportunities , to reach their aspirations. Already, broad campus is directly in touch with a national and global community via Greater Springfield’s dark fibre cabling which enables an advanced digital learning network.
Under a hub-and-spoke model, Education City functions as a focal point in the broader educational services offered throughout Greater Springfield and beyond. The campus is already home to numerous education providers. Across Greater Springfield there are a variety of local early learning options, primary and high schools, and specialist professional training institutes. Notably Education City is home to a major campus of the University of Southern Queensland, TAFE Queensland South West, Union Institute of Language, The Studio of Performing Arts Springfield and two Kindy Patch Early Education Centres.
Ultimately, Education City offers a fully integrated educational experience that is geared toward preparing students for a career anywhere around the world. Lifelong learning is important not just to adapt to changing job markets, but also simply for personal development. Whatever your age or educational goals, we invite you to embark on a journey of discovery within Australia’s first integrated learning community. At Education City, we subscribe to the holistic view that ‘Every day is a learning experience.’
