Sydney Internship Program Courses

For a total of 16 credits, you will complete one course at the University of Sydney and three Arcadia courses.

  • Make sure your courses transfer back for credit with your home school and that you are registered for a full academic load according to your home school policies – this is your responsibility.
  • Please be flexible about courses – we can’t guarantee placement in specific courses.
  • Please review your course choices with your academic or study abroad advisor, and submit the online course registration form to The College of Global Studies at Arcadia University.

When completing your course selection form:

  • Review all course information for the program carefully.
  • You are required to enroll in the core course.
  • Secure approval for at least 4-5 elective courses.

Enrollment Process

Official course registration will take place upon arrival. The preliminary course form you submit to Arcadia prior to acceptance is not set in stone.

If your enrollment is conditional upon entry into a specific course or courses, it is very important that you indicate these requirements at the bottom of the preliminary course form on your Arcadia Passport.
