The University of Sydney
Their founding principle as Australia’s first university was that they would be a modern and progressive institution. It’s an ideal they still hold dear today. When Charles William Wentworth proposed the idea of Australia’s first university in 1850, he imagined “the opportunity for the child of every class to become great and useful in the destinies of this country”. They’ve stayed true to that original value and purpose by promoting inclusion and diversity for the past 160 years. Since their inception, they have believed in education for all and leadership that make lives better. The same values continue to inform their policy of inclusion and underpin their long-term strategy for growth. Academic and professional staff is committed to ensuring their University continues to meet the highest academic standards and remains true to its founding principles. Their team of academics, experts and innovators shape the University’s future and ensure its continued success. Australia was built on welcoming people from different countries and cultures onto their shores. Today they carry on that tradition by encouraging international students to explore one of the world’s most liveable cities while studying at one of the world’s top 50 universities.
They offer the widest range of courses of any Australian university Share. From finding a course and how to apply and enrol, to fees, facilities and important dates, here are all the tips, tools and advice you need to make the most of your time here and prepare for life after graduation. The world is changing, and university education needs to change as well. They’ve reimagined the Sydney Undergraduate Experience –the way they teach and the way you’ll learn – to prepare you for a future full of possibilities.
Their campuses play host to a range of entertainment and events throughout the year. From weekly pub trivia to live music festivals, you’ll always find a good excuse to log out and put down the textbooks. Sydney ranks second on a list of the 50 best cities in the world in which to live, work and study, above New York and Paris. Their University has also been named among the world’s top 10 most beautiful campuses. With a network of campuses in the heart of the city and beyond, you’re never far from Sydney’s famous harbour, Opera House or beaches. But there’s more to living in Sydney than their iconic buildings and beaches. Their Camperdown/Darlington Campus is close to Sydney’s central business district (CBD) where you’ll find Chinatown, Darling Harbour and a labyrinth of shopping malls. The inner-west suburbs around Camperdown/Darlington, such as Newtown and Glebe, offer a great range of small bars and restaurants, without city prices. Meanwhile, if you head to the eastern suburbs, such as Darlinghurst, Potts Point or Paddington, you’re never too far from the sea and a patchwork of parks where spending a lazy Sunday afternoon doesn’t cost you anything at all.Their own campus is rich in greenery too, with the historic Quad at its heart, it’s just one of the many reasons they were voted one of the most attractive campuses worldwide.
