A Top School in the heart of Sydney

University of Sydney is Australia's oldest and most prestigious university. It is ranked 38th in the world in the 2013 QS World Rankings and is consistently among the top three universities in Australia. As a member of the Group of Eight, a coalition of leading Australian tertiary institutions, USyd offers you a range of strong academic courses usually with an Australian perspective. USyd has particular strengths in health and life sciences (including pre-med), humanities and engineering.

Located on the fringe of Sydney's Central Business District, the ivy-covered sandstone buildings of this vibrant and historic institution reflect its colonial heritage, while the modern architecture showcases a high-tech and multicultural direction.

Studying abroad has forced me to become more independent, and one of the most important things I have learned from this experience is that the more you put into something, the more you get out of it. Now I'm using a lot more effort in my life to make it the best that it can possibly be. ”
