The University of Sydney has one of the largest study abroad programs in Australia. Each year more than one thousand students come to or go from the university through one of our established international networks. With the country's broadest range of university studies and an extensive list of international partners, the University of Sydney provides excellent opportunities for both incoming and outgoing students to internationalize their studies.
The academic year in Australia begins in February and ends in November, with a break (June/July) between the first and second semesters. Students may have to attend an orientation session prior to the start of classes.
Yale does not grant credit for pre-semester courses.
Applying through a study abroad provider still allows you to directly enroll at the university, but with an additional level of services and support. Because of these additional services, it often costs more to study abroad through a provider than to apply directly through the university. We encourage you to research both options before making a decision. If you have any questions, contact a study abroad adviser.
How to Apply
Applying for admission and general Yale credit for designated (non-Yale) study abroad programs is a simultaneous process. It is your responsibility to ensure all application materials are submitted to the Study Abroad Office, and your desired program or university, by the relevant deadlines.
- Submit an application directly to the Study Abroad Office to be eligible to receive general Yale credit for coursework completed abroad, by the appropriate deadline. Late applications for study abroad credit cannot be accepted.
- Apply directly to the program or university you hope to attend for admission. Program application deadlines may be earlier or later than Yale’s application deadline. Access the program application directly from their website.
- You do not need to have already been admitted to your program when you apply for Yale credit.
