The University of Sydney offers the largest selection of courses in Australia to Study Abroad students, and these courses are customized for the short-term program, providing hands-on experiential learning in an Australian cultural context.  Units of study are taught with the same academic rigor and study workload as a normal semester.  Additionally, domestic and international students from across our University will be studying these units of study alongside Study Abroad and Exchange students.
Students choose 1 or 2 units of study, 1 of which can be a credit-bearing internship.  Click the link to the 2018 brochure to find out what units of study will be available.
