A Vibrant City For Work, Study, Living and Play
Sydney is a beautiful city famous for its beaches, glittering harbour and modern city lifestyle. It’s vibrant and dynamic – a centre of business and culture in Australia – so it’s the perfect place to base yourself for study.
As a design or digital media student, you’ll get inspired wandering around our big galleries, finding your way through underground art scenes, or discovering the start-up culture. Creativity is all around.
Commerce students will feel right at home – Sydney is the business hub of Australia. Most of the major corporations operating in the region base themselves here.
Sydney is home to a community of people from all corners of the globe. Spend your weekends exploring the different cultural neighbourhoods dotted around the city. It’s a rich, diverse, welcoming place but, being smaller and more laidback than a lot of other cosmopolitan cities, it’s also very safe and clean.
