Warren Ritson, Centro Directo of EC Brisbane


Why should a student choose your school?

EC Brisbane is a big city school with a small-town vibe. It is a great place to start your Aussie experience and enjoy year-round great weather. The teachers and staff here are dedicated to providing each and every student with the best possible experience in this vibrant up and coming city.


In your opinion, which are the main benefits for a student to study abroad?

Students who study abroad often improve their English language skills much faster as they are in a native English-speaking environment. Overseas studies also provides life changing experiences and the chance to make new friends from all over the world.


How do you see the future of language tourism?

Language tourism is here to stay. It will continue to expand and diversify as more people around the world look for new opportunities to learn and travel.


What types of courses do you think will be most in demand in the future? 

Pathway courses that allow a student to advance in their life, whether that be in their career, education, or in where they decide to make a their home.
