It has totally changed my cultural awareness... and definitely my future plans. I'm determined to get back there one day. And hopefully, for good. - University of Pittsburgh - Bradford View Entire Review
I learned to not be afraid to do things, to travel by myself. I take charge. I'm the fearless girl that I always knew I was, but just never had the chance to break out of my shell until Sydney came along. I will live in either Australia or New Zealand. I knew it from the moment the plane landed in both countries. It has become a... - University of Connecticut View Entire Review
A student studying abroad with Australearn: Sydney - University of Sydney
My experience abroad was absolutely worthwhile. I learned so much in Australia, both about its culture and people and about myself. This experience has taught me to put myself out there more and not be afraid to try new things. It has also been invaluable in showing me what's important in life. Being abroad has given me a new pe... - Western Washington University View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with GlobaLinks Learning Abroad: Sydney - University of Sydney
This experience was totally worthwhile! I loved being abroad and seeing another part of the world. It was not all that I expected, which is part of the reason it was worthwhile. Every day was not rainbows and butterflies, but all the experiences made me grow as an independent adult. This abroad trip also reinforced my future pla... - Berea College View Entire Review
Worth every penny. I never once regretted my time. Any student would do well in Australia because the people are welcoming and caring. The classes were just challenging enough to keep me focused but relaxed enough for me to explore beyond the uni. Because of my experience I am applying for grad school in Australia. - Ohio Wesleyan University View Entire Review
It was beyond worthwhile. I can not imagine my life without it. I am disappointed that not every student will have the opportunity to see what I have seen and discover themselves the way in which I did. I truely learned how unique each of us is. I am now much more motivated to pursue school and a career that will enable me to ... - Hamline University View Entire Review
My study abroad experience was defiantly worthwhile! I do not regret any minute of it. Everything from the program that I choose to my housing, the places I traveled and the friends I made were amazing. Even though I was not completely impressed with my host university I would not change the location of my school. The housing th... - University of Hartford View Entire Review

About

While the area where Sydney stands was originally inhabited by Aborigines thousands of years ago, the city as we know it today began in 1788 when the British established a penal colony in the area of the city now known as "The Rocks." The modern image of Sydney now includes the iconic images of the Sydney Opera House and the Harbor Bridge among others.

Although it is Australia's largest city, encompassing over 4 million people, Sydney is easily accessible with its many forms of public transportation and has something for everyone. It's made up of wonderful neighborhoods and beach communities allowing for students to explore the rich culture of the city. Students will find a variety of activities such as browsing the arts and crafts markets scattered around the city, socializing at the many sidewalk cafés and coffee shops, cheering on local Aussies playing cricket, and even visiting the beautiful Queen Victoria Building, renown for its Victorian architecture and numerous shops. Easily accessible mountains and beaches, such as the famous Bondi and Manly beaches, also allow students to take advantage of the cities natural beauty.
