Opportunity Description

Study at UNSW Sydney for a uniquely Australian experience, while living and learning at one of the world’s leading universities.

What is unique about this program?

Our Study Abroad Program offers a wide-range of academic courses as well as unique study opportunities to further enrich your cultural experience in Australia. You can start your studies in the Great Barrier Reef, do an internship or join an exciting research team.

The modern UNSW campus will be your home away from home during your studies abroad. With a range of housing options, diverse dining options, a grocery store, athletic facilities, easy public transit access, and a lively student community, the UNSW campus in the Sydney neighborhood of Kensington is a great place to live and study.

What is unique about Sydney?

Well located within one of the top global cities, UNSW Sydney offers students the best of both worlds — world-class beaches and stunning parklands within a vibrant, cosmopolitan harbor-side city. Ideally positioned as the gateway to the Asia Pacific, Sydney is home to more global firms than any other Australian city, fostering an energetic business community and numerous opportunities for students’ academic and professional development.
