Study and Education Options in Greater Springfield

Recognised as a key pillar in Greater Springfield, education has been given particular attention through ongoing investment into ensuring the full range of quality education services and facilities across the area.

Reinforcing this sentiment has been the
development of Education City in the Springfield CBD – a lifelong learning environment, offering tertiary, schooling, training and childcare educational services.

With 15 early learning centres, 11 schools and the University of Southern Queensland, Greater Springfield has the scope and quality of education to help everyone become a lifelong learner.

Utilising a hub-and-spoke model, Education City serves as the focal point in an expanding region of educational institutions and the link to a global community through Greater Springfield’s dark fibre cable network. 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 master plan that aims to generate one job for every three residents.

Within Education City, you can also find world-class student accommodation. Apartments range from two to seven bedrooms in size are fully furnished and are just a short walk from all education providers. The Residential Village provides a range of accommodation options on campus with short-term and long-term lease arrangements.

At Greater Springfield, we pride ourselves on fostering an environment that encourages lifelong learning for people of all ages. Learning City is an aspiration whereby life-long learning is expected and valued by the whole community; where learning can be seen and felt to flourish; opportunities and choices abound; and curiosity and discovery are championed.

The recently formed Greater Springfield Learning Coalition will nurture a seamless Learning City around four key areas of mutual interest.
