Abroad In Sydney

SUMMER TERM

CAPA Sydney in the Summer

While the season is actually colder, because things are opposite on the southern hemisphere, there's plenty to see and do in the city. Ride a camel during the Bondi Winter Magic events, warm up with a latte at a local café while catching up on your reading for class, or partake in the culture by attending the colorful Vivid Festival!

Examples of My Global City events include:

  • Barcelona: Learn about Mediterranean cuisine with a Tapas tasting.
Can I do an internship?  

Yes! Global internships are available at all of our program locations. We offer mainly part-time internships but full-time internships are available in a few locations.

Note: Some locations do not offer internships during the Summer term. Internships in Barcelona, Buenos Aires and Florence have a language requirement.

Check the Global Internships page for more details.

How can I get involved with my host city's community?  

You can get involved with your host city's community in different ways, depending on the location.

Volunteer opportunities are available in all of our program locations, however, these are organized differently in each location. Sample volunteering activities include:

  • Assisting with the London Marathon
  • Operating fundraising stations on behalf of NGO’s and charities
  • Soup kitchen support
  • Community clean up events
  • Teaching and mentoring young children

In London only, there is a service-learning course where you can earn credit for working in a community-based project to help fulfill the needs of that particular community.

How do I transfer my credits back to my home campus?  

Transferring credits can vary at each university depending on their arrangements with CAPA. It’s best to speak with your CAPA Program Manager to find out your specific situation, but here are the  general steps:

  • Meet with your registrar or academic advisor.
  • Find out the appropriate paperwork you will need to ensure your courses transfer back to your home campus.
  • Fill out CAPA School of Record forms if your school requires an official transcript for study abroad grades. Your CAPA advisor will send these to you and can help answer any questions you have.
  • Go Abroad!
  • Attend your classes and do awesome in them!
  • Receive your grades.

Final grades are sent to your home campus four to eight weeks after classes end. If you need additional transcripts, contact CAPA Boston.
