Study in one of the
world’s best cities
The business capital of Australia
Sydney is home to more global firms than any other Australian
city. A gateway to Asian economies, the city attracts great minds
and offers an ideal climate, a relaxed outdoor lifestyle and friendly
locals. It’s no wonder it was voted the 10th best city in the world to
live and work.*

Student friendly
Sydney is home to a diverse and cosmopolitan society.
The city was ranked the 4th best student city in the
world, winning extra points for quality of life (QS Best
Student Cities 2015). The food and coffee are pretty
good too.

Love Sydney for less
There are endless indoor and outdoor activities to enjoy
in Sydney at affordable prices. Visit free art galleries,
watch a movie at the local cinema, set off on a coastal
walk, enjoy a barbecue in the park, go snorkelling or
surfing at the beach, or grab a cheap lunch or dinner in
our neighbouring suburbs.

Surrounding areas
UNSW is located in the leafy Eastern Suburbs, minutes
away from Coogee Beach and Centennial Park. The
surrounding suburbs of Kingsford and Randwick are
full of affordable cafés and restaurants offering an
impressive range of international cuisine, reflecting the
area’s diversity.

Outside of Sydney
Hop on a train to the Blue Mountains for some fresh air,
go north or south along the coast for quiet and stunning
beaches, or head inland for Australian rural life. And
you can always hop on a plane to Melbourne, the
Gold Coast, New Zealand or Bali, just like the locals.
