About the University of Sydney
If you are looking for a campus-based university in an urban location, then the University of Sydney is a good choice. The main campus is an oasis in the middle of the city. Buses running into the center of Sydney pass by every five minutes, yet you can sit in a sandstone quad, or watch a cricket match and not realize that you are in the midst of Sydney. Public transport puts you in easy reach of many of Sydney's famous attractions in ten to fifteen minutes.
Extensive course offerings mean that you'll be able to fulfill your own curricular needs at the University of Sydney. Seventeen different Faculties covering subjects as diverse as agriculture and performing arts are open to study abroad students. As one of Australia's leading research universities, you'll find that whether you are studying in the arts and humanities or natural sciences, your professors are world-renowned academics. Modern laboratories, a brand new economics and business building, and a Conservatorium of Music that is actually located in Sydney's Botanical Gardens are just a few of the highlights.
With 40,000 students, you'll find the University of Sydney to be a lively place to study and meet others. Cafés and entertainment venues abound throughout the campus. On any given day, you'll find that the Students' Union hosts bands, theater performance, comedians, and films. For example, if you take a break at noon for lunch on Thursdays you can enjoy watching improvisational theater with Theatre Sports. Restaurants and cafes also abound. Manning house alone has no fewer than five eateries, allowing you to sit inside or out, and enjoy just a cup of coffee or a full hot meal. If you're more interested in organized activities, hundreds of clubs and societies are also available. A modern Sports and Aquatic Centre also offers a place to work out or simply socialize.
