    About Sydney

    An internship in Sydney is guaranteed to be an experience unlike any other. Australia’s financial and economic center, this metropolis down under is home to a vibrant, diverse populace, eager to innovate and compete in what has become an increasingly globalized marketplace. An international internship here allows for second-to-none experience in a culture that is as unique and diverse as any place on the planet.

    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. 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, banking, education, politics, and law. 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 harbour city by the sea.
