Planning for the Future

At the heart of the university's Campus Improvement Program (CIP) 2014-20 concept proposal is their commitment to providing a world-class environment for Sydney students, staff, visitors, and the local community to enjoy.

The CIP will provide for enhanced cultural, recreation, arts, sporting, educational and social spaces that will meet the needs of our future campus population and neighbours alike.

As well as defining the location and purpose of new buildings and infrastructure across six campus precincts, the Campus Improvement Program concept proposal provides plans for

Location: Sydney

Sydney is Australia's premier metropolis, and, as an international city, it has always been an attractive spot for Canadians wishing to study in Australia!

Sydney is the state capital of New South Wales and is found in the South Eastern shores of Australia on the Tasman Sea. The city has become famous for its beautiful waterfront, Sydney Harbour, which include Sydney's main tourist attractions, the immense span of the Harbour Bridge and the sharp, jutting curves of the Sydney Opera House.

Sydney has been ranked as the world's best city - not just once but 12 times - by the annual reader's choice awards in the highly respected magazine Conde Nast Traveller. It was also ranked as the World's Best City in the annual Anholt City Brands Index, ahead of London, Paris, New York and Rome. This study was based on factors such as safety, affordability, cleanliness and friendliness. Sydney's highly efficient public transport system means you can get to the city centre from the main University of Sydney campus within a few minutes.

Sydney makes good use of a climate that never feels a day below freezing and boasts a temperate maritime climate that averages annually from 12 to 23 degrees Celsius. With such great weather, Sydneysiders have their choice of activities that includes walking the harbour front or lying on the grass at the Royal Botanic Gardens, one of the many large parks in the city.

Finding a sporting event is simple in Sydney which houses 9 of the 16 teams of the National Rugby League! Sydney FC is the city's A-league soccer club, the Sydney Swans represent the Australian Football League and ex-pat Canadians feeling homesick can always cheer on the Sydney Ice Dogs at their home arena in the suburb of Liverpool.

The University of Sydney's main areas of operation in the city are its Camperdown and Darlington campuses, located about 5 km from Darling Harbour and Sydney Cove. Buses run everywhere, but a 45-minute walk to the harbour can feature a stop at the Haymarket District or grabbing some great dim sum in Chinatown! Sydney offers students the culture and excitement of a modern city while the local University Student Union, pubs and coffee shops provide the sense of community not found off campus.

Canadian students should note that the University of Sydney has a network of teaching campuses. Some studies or placements are undertaken outside the main Camperdown/Darlington campus, such as Sydney Uni's rehabilitation science programs (Cumberland Campus in Lidcombe), dentistry (Surry Hills campus) and vet science (Camden campus outside Sydney).
