A Top School in the heart of Sydney

Given the continuing challenges related to COVID-19 situation, including border closures and restrictions implemented by our overseas partners, Arcadia Abroad has made the decision to suspend our programs in Australia for Fall 2021. We are pleased to continue accepting applications for the Spring 2022 term.


University of Sydney (USyd) is Australia's oldest and one of its most prestigious university. 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 38th in the world in the 2013 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.

The one thing that I am glad I took advantage of was the pre-planned Arcadia excursions. Not only were these excursions the perfect way for me to explore the Australian culture and land, they were the needed activities for me to form the perfect support system and relationship bonds that will remain life-long friendships. ”
