Program Overview

sydneyU

Every year, hundreds of study abroad students from around the world are welcomed to the University of Sydney. Some come for the academic reputation while others wish to experience the vibrant student life bolstered by U. Sydney's guaranteed housing and unique Internship Program. Ranked 45th in the world in the 2015/16 QS World University Rankings and consistently within the top three in Australia, the University of Sydney is one of the country’s leading-research intensive universities.

Students can choose from over 2,500 subjects spanning 16 Faculties and Schools, including Arts, Social Sciences, Business, Education, Music, Engineering & IT, and Science. Their campus is within walking distance to many of the cities attractions, and what isn’t accessible on foot can be reached through public transit. So, whether you want to see the famous Opera House or Bondi Beach, it’s all within your reach after class.

This program is a direct enrollment option.  These programs are great because it keeps the cost of participating manageable, however many direct enrollment options are more independent experiences.  This means that students apply directly to the university abroad as a visiting international student for a semester or a year. Tuition and fees are dictated by the university abroad and paid directly to them.

Passports and Visas

A valid passport is essential to your international travel and study abroad. If you are planning to travel abroad, it's best to apply for a passport now as processing times may vary. Please see http://travel.state.gov/content/passports/english/passports.html for more information.

In order to obtain country-specific visa instructions and resources, refer to your host country’s embassy web page. One way to access this information is via the US Department of State’s webpage at: https://travel.state.gov/content/visas/en.html

UC International is happy to guide UC faculty, staff and students to possible resources about visas for study abroad. Although, applying for the necessary visa for travel is the responsibility of the individual UC traveler. Entry requirements change frequently, and we advise you to pay close attention to consular updates. It is your responsibility to know and address the requirements for your host study abroad destination.

Applying for a visa can be a complicated process. Some UC travelers choose a third party to assist with this process, for example Travisa or A Briggs (mention UC for a possible discount).

Health and Safety Abroad

UC International is committed to student and faculty safety while abroad. The following are a few resources for travel abroad:

UC faculty, students and staff are responsible for their own health and safety abroad. The US Department of State, Centers for Disease Control Prevention (CDC) and International SOS are excellent resources for country specific information.

UC partners with International SOS medical and security advice. UC's code is 11BCAS000010

UC students, faculty and staff can utilize International SOS in the following ways:
  • Sign up to receive email alerts for medical and security information, customizable to various locations abroad
  • Read about travel health information with medical advice, food and water safety, and cultural tips
  • Explore travel security with personal safety tips and travel risk ratings for locations abroad

UC faculty, students and staff traveling abroad should register their travel abroad through the US Department of State’s Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) in case of an emergency abroad.

All UC students participating in a University of Cincinnati sanctioned or funded international travel program are required to purchase and maintain insurance while abroad. UC International partners with CISI to provide insurance for UC students.
