Study Abroad at NYU Sydney in Pictures

A graphic look at the city and the NYU academic center

The Neighborhoods

NYU Sydney Academic Center: The Rocks

NYU Sydney’s academic center is located in the Rocks, the historic harborside quarter where the city was first settled. The Rocks’ cobblestone streets are home to museums, galleries, sidewalk cafes, and live music.

NYU Residence Hall: Haymarket

Haymarket is Sydney’s buzzing Chinatown. It’s filled with great restaurants and inexpensive markets—perfect for foodies on a student budget.

Beach Vibes

Australia has some of the most unique ecosystems in the world, and NYU students head to the nearby coast to make firsthand observations and gather samples.

What to Study

NYU Sydney is known for its environmental science and media, culture, and communication courses, but because Australia has an ancient indigenous population, courses on Aboriginal art and anthropology are also popular.

Students and professors head to Blue Mountains National Park for guided weekend tours. They follow the same path that Charles Darwin took in 1836 and discuss the geological and biological attributes of the area as well as the Aboriginal history of the region.
