This program allows students to live and study in one of the most multicultural and dynamic regions of the world. Students spend either the summer/fall or the spring/summer terms at the University of Sydney, the oldest university in Australia. The courses are offered mostly in the Arts & Sciences with a variety of disciplines from which to choose. Students are encouraged to take courses with an Australian and Southeast Asian focus, and will have access to all campus resources, including e-mail, campus activities, library facilities, and sports clubs. Optional trips are offered through the International Student Services Unit (ISSU) to Canberra, the Blue Mountains, and other exotic regions.
Students may choose from University of Sydney's entire course catalog. Courses taken abroad may satisfy college and departmental core requirements. Students should consult with their advisor to discuss the specific requirements that may be satisfied abroad. Fall 2012 course offerings will be updated shortly (week of Feb. 15th) on the University of Sydney Study Abroad & Exchange website.

Located on the southeast coast of the Pacific Ocean, Sydney is truly an international hub and Australia's premier city. In the year 2000, this vibrant city hosted the Summer Olympic games. On a natural harbor, Sydney is a stunningly beautiful city. Although most people picture the Opera House as its defining image, there are many attractions and opportunities for exotic experiences. You may decide to take full advantage of its beaches, theaters, museums, art galleries, shopping concourses, restaurants, cafes, and pubs. Getting around Sydney is easy with the extensive public transportation system. There are also exciting adventures beyond the city limits. The mountain ranges and sandy white beaches provide great excursions from the city atmosphere.
