Program Description:


UGA Exchange, University of Sydney

There are many benefits of being a study abroad or exchange student at the University of Sydney as part of your degree, such as our academic reputation, wide range of courses, vibrant student life, guaranteed housing and unique Study Abroad Internship Program, to name a few.

Ranked 40th in the world in the 2020 QS World University Rankings and currently the 2nd top university in Australia, the University of Sydney is one of the country’s leading research-intensive universities and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight. Many of the academics, your teachers, are leaders in their field giving you insights into the latest thinking and research in your field. With our excellent academic reputation, including Business School accreditation by the peak European (EQUIS) and North American (AACSB International) bodies, you can have great confidence in your semester of study.

At the University of Sydney we teach you think critically and find solutions to real world problems. Through the Study Abroad and Student Exchange programs is an exciting and challenging way of broadening your horizons in a new environment.

Program Location

sydneyThe University of Sydney has several campuses and teaching facilities spread across greater Sydney, but most of our faculties and student support services are based on the Camperdown and Darlington campuses.

Whether you’re an art novice or connoisseur, anyone can get involved in Art & About Sydney a fun, vibrant and collaborative festival that uses public spaces throughout the City as a canvas.

You could find yourself face-to-face with a giant pink snail around the city CBD, experience a dance/street gymnastics performance in a Sydney park, be told someone’s deepest secret at a bus stop or stroll through an avenue of art in Hyde Park. As well as the streets, parks, laneways and public spaces, take advantage of The Art Gallery of NSW, State Library of NSW, Australian Museum, Museum of Sydney and Customs House Library, who will all be opening their doors until late.

Don’t forget to take in the distinct character of our villages too, from designer led Surry Hills, to hip and happening Newtown; elegant cafes in Potts Point to the Theatre District in Walsh Bay, there is something to suit all tastes.

Min Ji Elizabeth Jang, Fall 2018 Participant
Because many students come to Sydney for exchange, the professors try to help you adjust to the Australian uni curriculum and structure. I think the appropriateness of the workload definitely depends on the class that you're taking-- with some being more hectic than the other-- but with good work ethic and good time management, it should be fine.

Min Ji Elizabeth Jang, Fall 2018 Participant
I truly loved my time at USyd because I got to meet so many new people and travel around Australia. I've made life-lasting friends in Australia who I still keep in contact with.

Courtney Tate McGonigle, Spring 2018 Participant
The University of Sydney exchange program exceeded my expectations in every way possible. I had the greatest time abroad, I wish it could have never ended.

APPLY. I've made so many awesome memories and friends, who I still talk to today. Don't be afraid because there are so many international/ exchange students in Sydney, so you're not alone. The locals are also really nice and are willing to help you if you need it.
