Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and is located on the eastern coast of Australia. The city is home to Port Jackson, the largest natural harbor in the world—but that’s not all that Sydney is famous for. “Sydneysiders” are known to be easy-going, welcoming “Aussies,” with their own spin on the English language (commonly referred to as “Strine”).

Sunny and spacious, Sydney is the epitome of the Aussie lifestyle. Australians are renowned for their enviable way of life, the essence of which is captured at world-famous Bondi Beach in Sydney’s eastern suburbs. The leisurely beachside vibe is palpable and this is only the beginning of the entertainment that Sydney has to offer.  Enhanced by the city’s ethnic and linguistic diversity is a vivacious nightlife of jazz venues and nightclubs, an unparalleled art and music scene, and a mosaic of recreational activities that will continue to fuel Sydney as one of the most captivating study abroad destinations in the world
