Why study in Sydney
Aside from the plethora of courses, colleges and universities dotted around the city, Sydney has many other qualities that attract students from all over Australia and around the world.
It’s full of museums, which will be of great interest to history students, as well as natural science students, and even archaeology students. Museums include the Museum of Sydney, the Powerhouse Museum and the Australian Museum.
There are enough art galleries to excite art students of all genres, including the Hawkesbury Regional Gallery, the Sherman Contemporary Art Foundation, and the Art Gallery of NSW.
Drama students will love the Belvoir St Theatre and King Street Theatre, while dance students will enjoy the unique performances by the Bangarra Dance Theatre.
Let’s not forget that Sydney is a vibrant city with interesting night life to keep students (responsibly) occupied in their free time. The transport system is also good, so students can easily get where they need to go.
Finally, TAFE courses in Sydney are nationally accredited, so credits are easily transferable. Sydney TAFE courses also serve as pathways to university degrees, which is ideal if you’re not heading off to uni immediately after school or if you need to get back into studying after many years in Sydney’s workforce.
