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.
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.
Visit the famed Sydney Opera House. It lives up to the hype.
Learn to surf at nearby Bondi Beach. Nothing will make you feel like a local faster.
Working for the Weekend
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.
