The University of Sydney

Please be reminded that you need to meet different deadlines when applying to this program:

  • Princeton application deadline: October 16, 2020
  • Sydney application deadline: November 15, 2020
The University of Sydney offers an idyllic back drop for a semester abroad, next to beautiful beaches and located in Australia's most famous city. Students can take courses across a wide range of disciplines, such as engineering, sociology, anthropology, and much more. 

The University

Ranked 38th in the world in the 2013 QS World University Rankings and consistently in the top three in Australia, the University of Sydney is one of the country’s leading research-intensive universities and a member of the prestigious Group of Eight. Australia's first university is located in one of the most exciting areas of Sydney, with the quirky, offbeat suburbs of Newtown and Glebe stretched around it. An enormous, urban campus, University of Sydney is modelled after Oxford and Cambridge in England, and it is perfect for students that love coffee, live music and the arts, bookshops, and libraries. The business school is the only one in Australia to have AACSB accreditation for both Accounting and Finance. With more than 100 teaching departments organized into 16 faculties you are sure to find the courses you need!

The Setting

Arguably Australia's most well-known city, Sydney sits next to the harbor and his home to some of the most stunning landmarks in Australia. Sydney is home to beautiful beaches and plenty of outdoor activity, so it is a perfect destination for those that enjoy the outdoors and gorgeous weather all year round. 



Students will enroll in a full course-load while at USydney, which is 24 credits and typically equates to four courses. Study abroad students are not permitted to enroll in more than four courses, but students can take courses (known as "subjects" at USydney) across a wide-range of disciplines: Engineering, Psychology, Computer Science, Anthropology, History, Asian Studies, Political Science, Environmental Studies, and more! Check out the USydney "units of study" guide for more information on courses. 


Applicants must have a B average for the fall and spring semesters of the academic year preceding the year or semester abroad.
