A student studying abroad with Boston University: Sydney - Sydney Internship Program
I discovered what I like. I felt that I explored the world by going to a country that is so far away from home, thus learning a new culture. My internship provided me with a big line for my resume, and the courses that I took in Sydney opened up my mind in many ways. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
Through traveling I learned a lot about being independent while exploring the world. I also learned a lot from the internship component of the program. I would say it was worthwhile and that I would do it again, if only for those components - Brandeis University View Entire Review
On my program I was able to learn about Australia as a culture and how to handle myself while living in a new city. The internship part of the program was great and I was able to have a very hands-on experience. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
I absorbed a lot in the classes that I took, however most of what I learned was with other experiences. The list includes: how to survive in a city, public transportation, cooking for myself, the Australian workplace. It was extremely worthwhile for my overall growth. - Brandeis University View Entire Review

What I need to live my life. - Brandeis University View Entire Review
It was definitely a worthwhile experience. Having never really traveled internationally or on my own before, I was able to grow as a person. I also was able to see how big and beautiful the world truly is and how there is so much to see and all different kinds of people and cultures that are worth getting to know. - Providence College View Entire Review
My experience abroad was certainly worthwhile. Not only did I learn about myself but I also learnt a good amount about Australian culture. During my time abroad, I gained personal confidence from the validation that I received from my internship advisor and my boss. Moreover, I gained insight into the Australian workplace, and a... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

Because Sydney is a multicultural city, every individual gains a sense of the cultural differences it offers. The Australian culture is completely different from any other in the world. They are full of happiness, passion, helpfulness, etc. Moreover, it was worthwhile! If it were for me, I would have stayed in Sydney for several... - Brandeis University View Entire Review

About

Ready for the ultimate academic getaway? Sydney is your spot. It’s a world-class city. It’s far away. It’s English-speaking yet retains a Pacific-rim vibe. And the BU programs give students a unique perspective—both in the classroom and outside—on this glorious multicultural nation of Oz.

Most programs require students to take a popular Australian Culture and Society course. It’s taught in the BU Sydney Academic Center, which houses the program’s academic facilities, classrooms, library, computer room, and staff offices. (Students who’ve been on the Sydney program have especially high praise for the five full-time and three part-time BU support staff.)

Housing is on the outskirts of downtown near Darling Harbour. Studio apartments may consist of shared studio-type arrangements or large suites housing a larger number of students, but will always incorporate access to kitchen facilities as well as shared living space and bathroom/shower units.

Sydney and indeed all of Australia offer unbelievable opportunities to explore, from the Opera House, great shopping, and local beaches to Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, and even farther afield to New Zealand and Fiji.
