A Top School in the heart of Sydney

University of Sydney (USyd) is Australia's oldest, and one of its most prestigious, universities. As a member of the Group of Eight, an elite coalition of leading Australian institutions, USyd offers you a range of strong academic courses usually with an Australian perspective. Through Arcadia, you can also choose to include an internship placement while you study at USyd, to gain knowledge and experience to boost your resume.

USyd is ranked 40th in the world in the 2021 QS World Rankings and is consistently among the top three universities in Australia. It 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.

Arcadia hosts a great selection of unique day and weekend excursions throughout the semester to offer us a genuinely Australian experience firsthand. ”
