The new three-level campus is located at 110 Eagle Street in the Brisbane Central Business District’s Golden Triangle, close to the city conveniences and public transport. Facilities include 16 classrooms, a library/computer room, a student lounge, teacher facilities and wi-fi connection throughout.

Impact offers a range of English language programmes including general English, intensive courses, Cambridge and Ielts preparation and business English.

In a statement, the school said, “The Brisbane campus will mirror the Melbourne campus in everything that Impact is known for, including its strict English-only policy and for providing students with top-class service and learning outcomes across a wide range of courses.

“It will allow for transfer of students between campuses, thus providing the opportunity for students to experience living in two of Australia’s most vibrant cities, each with a very different feel.”

The new campus was officially opened at a special ceremony by Mark Raven, Chief Executive Officer of accreditation body NEAS, and Patrick Hafenstein, Group Manager of International Education and Training at Trade and Investment Queensland, along with Impact English College Directors, Chris Burgess and Fukari Sato. The event was attended by the school’s local and offshore agents and pathway partners.

The Brisbane centre will be led by Genesio Falcomer as Academic Manager and Mari Hayashi as Marketing Manager, with support from Jennifer Diaz as Marketing and Administration Officer. Falcomer has previously worked as a Director of Studies in Brisbane, while Hayashi and Diaz will transfer from the Melbourne school.

Impact English is accredited by NEAS, and is a member of English Australia and the International Association of Language Centres (IALC).
