Here's what you get when you study abroad with CEA in Sydney:
These residences are perfect for students looking for an immersive student experience. Generally located near the central Surry Hills and Redfern neighborhoods, these student residences are close to mass transportation stations and conveniently located in central Sydney. These residences are open to university students and young professionals around Sydney, making it a unique option to allow students to interact with the local student body. A single room may be available at an additional fee.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
