Sydney Internships Overview

    Sydney, while not the capital of Australia, is the financial and economic center, hands down. In fact, its local economy has performed so well that its citizens are the second most prosperous in the entire world relative to the local cost of living. In addition to a great tourism industry that caters to adventure and nature lovers, Sydney is also home to wonderful opportunities in the areas of business, real estate, arts/entertainment, manufacturing, banking, education, politics, and law.

    Programs in Sydney are available for 8 or 12 weeks in the summer, fall, or spring. If you want to explore Australia but have never been able to figure out how to spend a significant amount of time there, an internship in Sydney should absolutely be a consideration.

    About Sydney

    An internship in Sydney is guaranteed to be an experience unlike any other. This metropolis “down under” is home to a vibrant, diverse populace, eager to innovate and compete in what has become an increasingly globalized marketplace. While indigenous people are believed to have inhabited the land that makes up modern Sydney as far back as 30,000 years ago, Sydney as we know it today is a relatively young city.

    Furthermore, it is widely considered one of the most pleasant and livable cities in the entire world. With over 300 days of sunshine each year, iconic landmarks like the Sydney Opera House, Darling Harbor, and Luna Park, it’s easy to understand why so many fall in love with this city by the sea.
