Internet Access and Security
While you are studying at TAFE Queensland campuses we offer free Wi-Fi but if you are off campus, you should be able to gain access to Wi-Fi at cafes and libraries in most major cities.
In addition to this you can access the Internet via wireless connections or through your Homestay family's Internet access. If you are going to use a great deal of Internet it is advisable to set up your own Internet account with a USB modem for Internet connection.
Internet costs in Australia are high and you must be considerate of this when using it.
