In addition to offerings in your major, you’ll find especially enriching courses in biomedical sciences, environmental sustainability, and robotics and technology. It’s also a great place to prepare for a career in government or social or health policy. Australia’s largest city, Sydney is reminiscent of San Francisco, with ocean coastline, a dramatic bay, and hilly streets.
