Introduction :
The University of Sydney

Established in 1850 as Australia’s first university, today the University of Sydney is one of the world’s leading, comprehensive research and teaching institutions, ranked in the top 1% of universities in the world.

The University of Sydney’s diverse community of more than 54,000 students and 6,100 academic staff from more than 130 countries, share Australian innovation and research on the international stage.

Multidisciplinary research excellence

The University of Sydney is a world-leading research institution, with 100% of its research ranked at world standard or above.

The University has wide-ranging research strengths, from English language and literature, to philosophy, history, and the social sciences, to clinical medicine, quantum mechanics, astrophysics and robotics.

The University’s investment in multidisciplinary research is unrivalled in Australia, and its strategy aims to harness its research strengths – including a breadth and depth of disciplinary expertise unique in Australia – to address some of the major global challenges of our time, including:

· obesity

· diabetes and cardiovascular disease

· nanoscale science and technology

· mental health and neurosciences.

Its research also includes a distinctive whole-of-institution focus on China and Southeast Asia.

The University’s strategy represents almost $1 billion of targeted investment for interdisciplinary research in these areas alone, which places it among the leading institutions globally pursuing these challenges.

Educational excellence

The University of Sydney offers Australia’s broadest range of disciplines, and a global network that includes more than 250 exchange opportunities in 41 countries, which allows its students to shape their education to their interests and society’s newest challenges.

That’s one reason you’ll find its 320,000 alumni sharing its unique style of thinking in more than 170 countries around the world.

An education for everyone

It has always been the University of Sydney’s mission to provide people from any background with the opportunity to realise their potential through education. We were one of the first universities in the world to admit students solely on academic merit, and women on the same basis as men.

Today, the University provides almost $100 million in scholarships, grants and other support, as well as alternative entry pathways to students from diverse and disadvantaged backgrounds every year.

A unique campus life

There’s more to student life than what happens in the classroom. Voted number one for student experience in Australia, the University of Sydney is home to a diverse range of students from more than 130 countries, who enjoy access to more than 200 clubs and societies, sporting facilities, performance spaces, museums, galleries and learning and studying spaces.

With everything located on one of the world’s most beautiful campuses only five minutes from the centre of Sydney, the University’s community is unlike anywhere else in the world.

In establishing the University of Sydney, our founders recognised the power of education to inspire positive change. It’s a principle that drives us today, encouraging our people to push conventions, shape change and improve lives.
