About the University of Sydney- Summer School and Internship

The University of Sydney is the oldest and most prestigious university in Australia, with an international reputation for excellence. The main campus stands on 72 hectares with its magnificent 1857 neo-gothic sandstone quadrangle reflecting the University's academic and cultural heritage. Research and technological facilities are first class, and include the prizewinning Fisher Library which holds over 4 million items.

The University of Sydney has designed a wonderful short-term summer program for study abroad students. Students have the option to take one course or two courses (which can include one course and a part-time internship) within their academic field. Internships are not guaranteed. Students who want an internship will need to apply and complete a Skype interview prior to the program start date. Placements are limited so students are encouraged to select a backup course in case they are not selected for the internship placement. The University of Sydney has many unique summer courses to select from!

This short-term program is a fantastic way to experience Australian's exciting culture, develop global connections in your chosen profession and gain a competitive advantage in the graduate employment market. Sydney, the capital of New South Wales, is a free-spirited and vibrant city built around one of the world's most beautiful harbors (where Sydney Opera House is located), with many beaches within easy reach of its cosmopolitan heart.

Discover the University of Sydney:


Sydney provides peace of mind to students by providing accommodation at Urbanest (Short-Term A, for 6 weeks) or Queen Mary Building (Short-Term B for just under 5 weeks). Both buildings are situated 15 minutes’ walk from campus and are on the doorstep of downtown Sydney. Each provider has their own social calendar, including activities such as a weekly sausage sizzle (BBQ) and pancake breakfast to promote a community atmosphere. Residents are a mix of international and domestic students, providing ample opportunity to meet and make friends with local students.

For this reason the University of Sydney recommends students undertake 2 units of study or 1 unit of study and an internship. Students only doing a 3 week session will need to arrange other accommodation directly.
