At ICMS, students sign up for an internship experience, which will count as their fourth class. The internship involves ten hours per week in Sydney-based companies and are project-based. Any major can apply for an internship and no previous work or internship experience is required. Final marks will be based on supervisor evaluation, final project and final presentation.

Activities / Immersion
Our local staff arrange various activities during the semester designed to help immerse you in the local culture. These activities are included in your semester program. In addition, if you have a specific interest or hobby, your Sydney-based TEAN Resident Director will be able to point you in the right direction. Below are examples of previous activities arranged for students. Note that activities change each semester.
In addition to the TEAN-organized events, to make sure you don’t miss out on any opportunities, our local staff send out frequent emails letting you know what is happening in Sydney. Ranging from community events to music festivals, we tap you into the local culture right from the start.
Rugby League Match
In Australia, each state has a sport that dominates. In New South Wales, rugby league is the dominant sport. We join the local crowds to see a game and your local TEAN staff provide an explanation of the rules.
Sydney Opera House Performance
While tourists stand around outside taking photos, the locals are inside the Opera House seeing some of the best theatre, opera, dance or musical performances in the world. We join the locals at one of the many performance spaces inside the Sydney Opera House to experience the wonderful arts scene of Australia.
LEARN TO SURF
Australians love the beach – being an island nation with beautiful coastlines and 85% of the population living within an hour of a beach, it’s not surprising. Surfing is the favorite pastime of Aussie beachgoers so we introduce you to this sport early on in the semester with a lesson to get you started riding the waves.

Bondi – Coogee Coastal Walk
It won’t take you long to discover the coastal walk from Bondi to Coogee – it has amazing views. It also has a really cool way of always changing and presenting something new. I’ve seen whales off the coast and I love when different weather rolls in and changes the surf. Sculpture by the Sea happens once a year, and places beautiful giant artworks along the walk and in the parks.
Tell us a little about your role at TEAN?
As a Program Manager, I work with students from the time they apply until the day they depart on their journeys abroad. Generally speaking I’m responsible for guiding students through the application process. This includes helping students choose their courses abroad, book their flights, apply for a visa, secure housing, and make arrangements for orientation to name a few steps.
What advice do you have for a student who wants study in Australia, but is unsure what school or city within Australia would be the best fit?
First, I would think about what your priorities are for your semester abroad. Do you want to be in a big city or small city? How important is it for you to be near the beach? Are your course requirements flexible or do you absolutely need to take certain classes? Once you’ve spent some time thinking about what matters most to you, I would recommend getting in touch with the TEAN office so you can speak with one of our Program Managers for Team Australia. Our team has extensive knowledge of these locations and the different nuances of Australian universities. They can best direct you to the right option for your academic, social, and cultural preferences.
What should be on every student’s bucket list while studying abroad in Sydney?
Oh man, this is tough because Sydney truly has something for everyone. However on my top three list I would say, take a surf lesson at Bondi Beach, walk across the Sydney Harbor Bridge for the amazing views and finally have a triple scoop of gelato from Messina because it’s my favorite treat in Sydney (plus it’s low calorie… not).
From your time living in Australia, what have been some travel highlights for you?
Some of my most memorable travels in Australia were in the Outback. As a recent college grad, I participated in a small tour group that drove from Adelaide to Alice Springs where we got to visit Uluru and Kata Tjuta. During this week-long excursion we slept under the stars and hiked through incredible landscapes. I’ve never been somewhere so remote in my life.
Where do you seek inspiration?
I LOVE to read, particularly travel writing, so I would probably say books are my main source of inspiration. I also love to clear my head with exercise and meditation.
