Overall Experience
CAPA The Global Education Network allowed me not only to study abroad down under in Australia but also found me an awesome internship based on my own personal interests and major. They did an awesome job by placing me with an internship with DEC PR & Communications right in the heart of the CBD in Sydney. I was able to work with... - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA The Global Education Network: Sydney Study or Intern Abroad
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. This was tough, but I learned a lot about what it will be like when I'm on my own. I also got to meet new people and explore a new place. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: Sydney Study or Intern Abroad
I learned many things pertaining to my major, international marketing, but even more important than that, I learned a great deal about myself. I learned my strengths and weaknesses and I am more in touch with the career path I will likely take upon graduation. I also made life long friendships with some amazing people. It wa... - Culver-Stockton College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: Sydney Study or Intern Abroad
I learned so much about the Australian culture, about working in a corporate environment, and about myself. After seeing how much personal growth I had gotten out of my study abroad experience, I'd say it was worth the cost ten fold. I would do it all over again in a heart beat. - Purdue University View Entire Review

January 17, 2017 Mates For L Ife
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... - SUNY - College at Oswego View Entire Review
October 15, 2016 Study Abroad
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. I was taught knowledge on an educational and philosophical level that simply could not have been accomplished by reading a textbook, but by living amongst people of another culture. In e... - Hofstra University View Entire Review

January 27, 2016 Life Changing
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. I also learned a lot about my major that you can't learn in a classroom. I can honestly say that CAPA and Sydney changed who I am for the better. I am incredible gr... - University of Rhode Island View Entire Review
October 19, 2015 My Summer Abroad
I abosutely loved studying abroad through the CAPA program. I spent 7.5 weeks in Sydney, Australia, and I learned so much. CAPA helped me prepare for the trip, helped me find an amazing internship, and the staff was always there in Sydney if we needed anything. As a group, CAPA took us on a trip to the Blue Mountains and a wildl... - Purdue University View Entire Review
Although it sounds kind of cheesy I learned a lot about myself while being abroad. I have always been a fairly independent person but that really gets put to the test when you are in a foreign country where you don't know anyone. I would say it helped me grow up a bit and learn some good life skills, like how to take the public... - Arizona State University View Entire Review
I gained professional knowledge in my internship that will put me in a prepared position for graduate school. Also, I gained a network in my field that I can utilize throughout my career as it develops. The friends and connections I have made are special to me and I will keep in touch with a number of individuals from my time ... - D'Youville College View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with CAPA International Education: Sydney Study or Intern Abroad
I learned how independent I am. I was able to move to another country for 3 months and immerse myself into the culture and way of life. I have gained the most rewarding experience of seeing things I would have never imagined in a life time. You truly grow as an individual and it's amazing to see what you can do on your own. - University of Massachusetts Amherst / UMass View Entire Review

March 13, 2014 Life Changing
I could never imagine how worthwhile my trip would end up being. My views on life were expanded and I was able to see so much of the world. Apart from my host country I also traveled to Fiji, Thailand, Singapore and Malaysia. Honestly, the only downfall from the entire experience was having to come back home. I would do it again... - Arizona State University View Entire Review

city that will charm you unlike any other. Be at ease as you spend a day

combined with the outstanding school you'll attend will help you become
independent in a setting where you'll be comfortable and challenged at the same
time. The CAPA Sydney Center is located in Ultimo, on the campus of the TAFE New South Wales. The Sydney staff provide support to help you adapt to Australian life.
