Sydney is a city that seems to do everything at full throttle. Amidst the wonderful weather and world famous landmarks are some of Australia’s best universities allowing students to take advantage of world-class courses while also spending their spare time surfing in the sun. In fact, the University of Sydney, University of New South Wales and University of Technology Sydney are often ranked as some of the top 50 schools in the world for a wide range of courses. Additionally, a number of internship opportunities are also available for students’ to further not only their education, but their professional resume as well. Once you get settled into one of the six schools available, you can start to get a feel for the city. While the magnificent Sydney Harbour and legendary beaches make for an “outdoorsy” lifestyle, Sydney’s multiculturalism and diversity inspire an incredible food and art scene.
