Housing Options

Our carefully chosen housing options enhance your experience abroad by allowing you to live like a local. While we do attempt to match your preferences with our housing options, housing preference requests cannot be guaranteed. Housing and roommate assignments are first-come, first-serve based on availability; apply early to help us organize your housing arrangements.

Independent Living


While CEA highly recommends that you choose our Sydney housing option provided, you also have the option to arrange independent housing. If your ideal housing scenario includes living in a particular neighborhood, having specific amenities or living with a specific person as your roommate, then independent housing could be just the ticket for you.

Use the online housing application form to request permission for this option no later than the application closure date. If your request is approved, you will receive a rebate for your housing payment, however CEA will not provide you with any assistance setting up independent housing. Keep in mind, rebates are not granted to students who move out of their CEA housing or choose to pursue independent living arrangements after the application closure date.








While excursions are not included within the cost of the Internship in Sydney program, students may opt into Discovery Week at an additional fee.

Discovery week will take place the week prior to the program. Discovery Week is an opportunity for students to see and learn more about Australia and Sydney prior to their internship's start.

Discovery Week may include a city tour, harbor cruise, a rainforest-beachside stint featuring unique Aussie wildlife featuring kangaroos and koalas, sand dune-boarding, a bush walk, a beach tour, and more.

Cultural Engagement

Beach Tour

This beach tour will take students along the famous coastal path from Coogee Beach to Bondi Beach. It will stop along six of the best beaches in Sydney.

Performance at the Sydney Opera House

Students will enjoy the performance of a lifetime at the Sydney Opera House alongside their peers. Tickets to performances are available to students at a discounted rate.

Food Crawl

Experience Sydney as the Aussies do! Students will be led on a guided tour of the local food scene in Sydney to experience the cuisine firsthand.

Networking Hour

Enjoy networking hours throughout your term in Sydney. Located in various restaurants across Sydney, these gatherings will allow you the time to connect with your peers and local professionals.

Other Opportunities

What Our Student Said

The most rewarding and exciting experiences of my life
Australia with CEA was one of the most rewarding and exciting experiences of my life. It was a completely different experience, traveling to a new country without my family or friends and having to balance education with exploring the country and making friends. It was difficult at times, but a majority of my time in Australia was simply amazing. I would encourage everyone to take advantage of their college years to go on a study abroad experience.
