1. One of Australia’s best cities
Sydney’s attractions are extremely popular. There are Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Luna Park, Royal Botanic Garden, Government House, Art Gallery of NSW and Darling Harbour to pick from. Many attractions are free or have scheduled free open days or nights. Sydney is also home to world-class free festivals like the VIVID light and art show which projects stunning imagery across buildings after sunset during winter.
2. Unity in Diversity
There are now more than 35,000 international students studying at local universities in Sydney. The city is full of people from all around the world, which also makes the locals pretty open to differences, making it easier for you to assimilate the Australian culture. Plus, if you get homesick, you can always find a community here from your country.
3. History of academic excellence
Home to the oldest university in Australia (The University of Sydney) and also amongst the best universities in the world (Ranked 42nd Globally), the city takes pride in its rich history of academic excellence.
4. Job opportunities
The NSW state government has invested heavily in creating jobs across Sydney and the wider state. Investment in infrastructure construction, innovation and new technology has meant that there are cranes across the city skyline, there are new railway tracks laid in the outer suburbs and there is also a new airport planned. This is great news for students and graduates in Sydney. The fallout means there are opportunities in a wide range of industries being created.
5. Valuable help for students
Being an international student, you are not restricted to seek help only from the university. The local government of New South Wales, non-government organisations and charitable organisations offering assistance to international students in various issues like work, health, studies, sports and many more.
6. Events for everyone
Events big and small, sporting or musical, it bonds the city together for everyone to have a good time. A perfect opportunity for international students to make friends. Of course, let’s not forget about the beaches. After shopping, cafe-hopping, the best idea is to just relax at the beach and take a dip in the ocean. Bondi Beach which attract the best crowds throughout the year.
