About The Program
Earn a full year of calculus-based physics credit in just eight weeks. Fulfill math requirements for the life sciences or get a jump on pre-med coursework and experience life in Sydney, Australia. The University of Sydney's neo-gothic quad feels like an old-fashioned castle except it's filled with modern labs, observatories, and supercomputers. Your social calendar could include surf camp, breakfast with koalas, and an introduction to the indigenous Australian culture. Beyond the program, cruise around Circular Quay, Darling Harbour, and the Sydney Opera House on a ferry. Though it’s Australia’s winter, the blue waters of Manly Beach are still temperate enough for a snorkeling tour.
Where you'll study
The University of Sydney (UoS) is Australia’s first university and one of the most highly regarded institutions in the world. The central campus is located in Camperdown, a district in the city of Sydney. The university’s many additional teaching and research locations span from the uber urban campus all the way to a remote research station at the southern end of the Great Barrier Reef. The magnificent neo-Gothic quadrangle on the main campus is considered a national treasure. Public transport by rail and bus from campus makes it easy to discover Sydney and enjoy all the city has to offer, from the shopping and markets, to beaches and outback farms. Student life at UoS offers access to a multitude of cultural and scientific museums. On-campus bars offer a relaxed coffee shop atmosphere during the day, and comedy and poker events at night. In addition to the casual events around campus, there are hundreds of student clubs and societies to enjoy, from book and anthropology clubs to music and sports associations.
TRIPS AND ACTIVITIES
Optional field trips and activities to introduce the local culture are available through your host university. Most events are free or discounted, but some come with an additional cost not included in UCEAP fees.
