My study abroad experience was an event in my life that has benefited me in so many positive ways.

I learned a lot about myself and how I travel as well as about other cultures. It was very worthwhile. Alex - Arizona State University View Entire Review
I learned how different America is from other countries. In Sydney, everyone is so fashionable and professional. Also, they have a much healthier lifestyle than we do in the US. I still make some of the food I was introduced to there, and would have never tried the different types of food here in America if it weren't for my tri...

Kristen Curtis - Anderson University, SC View Entire Review
I got to go outside of my comfort zone a lot, which I truly appreciate. I lived without my family, had to go grocery shopping for myself, and balance my own budget.

I gained a new sense of independence and confidence from going abroad and going outside of my comfort zone. I met so many people that are now amazing friends! The opportunities for travel and adventure are limitless! Haley - Merrimack College View Entire Review
I learned how important intercultural communication is both personally and professionally. The more you are exposed to the rest of the world's culture, the more open and adaptable you become to other's beliefs and ideas. I believe going abroad was one of the most valuable experiences I have been apart of thus far. Lydia A - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
I learned about being patient and exiting my comfort zone. I went snorkeling and site seeing in a jungle, something that a girl from Brooklyn, NY never thought she would do. I made friends with people who were different with me and reconnected with those who were similar. It was definitely a worthwhile trip despite the long jour... Cherilyn Beckles - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
This program allowed my mind to be carefully crafted by the ideologies of hundreds of different people I got to interact with on a daily basis.

While on this trip I learned a lot about my major aswell as myself. I learned that I am capable of living on my own even if it is on the other side of the world.

A breathtakingly beautiful coastal city, Sydney is an exciting and diverse place to study abroad with 120 nationalities and the rhythm of 250 languages spoken here. That means delicious foods from around the world fill the markets and there are international celebrations like Buddha’s Birthday Multicultural Festival to join in on. It can be laid-back, with more than 100 beaches and dozens of coastal walks to enjoy, but it’s also one of the biggest business hubs in the Asia-Pacific region and has been named the “innovation and technology capital of Australia”.
The CAPA Sydney program is based in TAFE NSW Sydney Institute, in a beautiful centrally located heritage building. Our distinctive blend of academic and experiential education takes your learning style, interests, preferences and independence into consideration.
You’ll learn both inside the classroom and beyond, with field studies, excursions, My Global City events, and an (optional) internship placement.
