Study Abroad & Intern inSydney


Make Sydney Your Classroom

Study abroad and intern in this diverse and stunning coastal city. Sydney is a sparkling jewel and its eclectic and charming neighborhoods offer something for everyone. Explore endless oceans on one of dozens of coastal walks, discover ancient Aboriginal carvings and immerse yourself into the winding street markets and its Asian-inspired cuisine. Sydney has its own rhythm and beat — one you’re sure to want to dance along with.

The CAPA Sydney Center is hosted at TAFE NSW Sydney Institute, in a beautiful centrally located heritage building.

Quick Facts:

  • Sydney is a multicultural society home to immigrants from 120+ nationalities 
  • Sydney Harbour Bridge opened in 1932 and was nicknamed "The Coathanger"
  • Australia is about the same size as continental USA
  • More than 250 languages are spoken in Sydney
  • There are well over 100 beaches in the city
  • If combined the 14 shells of the Sydney Opera House would form a perfect sphere

One of the most unique opportunities here is the ability to work with students across the globe through CAPA's Globally Networked Learning system. I am working with a girl in Florence on a short movie script covering tropes from both Italian and Australian films. At the same time I'm doing a collaborative project with CAPA students from Florence and Dublin on how multiculturalism affects the environment around us. This not only integrates us with our immediate community, but other CAPA global cities as well.
