Studying in Sydney, NSW

New South Wales is home to some of Australia’s most prestigious universities, many of which are located in Sydney, one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Other campuses across New South Wales are near some of the state’s most pristine beaches, for example, in Wollongong and Newcastle, or next to world-heritage national parks, such as in Armidale. If you are thinking of moving to a university in Australia, read on and discover what New South Wales has to offer.

Australian Catholic University (ACU)

The ACU has two Sydney campuses, one in North Sydney, just north of the Harbour Bridge, and another in Strathfield, 14 kilometres west of the Sydney city centre. The university offers off-campus, apartment-style accommodation in Camperdown, a short commute from both campuses, where students can receive support and attend academic, social and spiritual events on a monthly basis.

Charles Sturt University (CSU)

CSU has New South Wales campuses in Wagga, Albury–Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo and Orange, some of the state’s most vibrant regional centres. It has three main faculties: Arts and Education; Business, Justice and Behavioural Sciences; and Science. In terms of accommodation, rooms in apartments or cottages near each campus may be rented through the university.

Macquarie University

Macquarie University is located in Australia’s largest high-tech precinct in the north-western suburbs of Sydney, with 300 leading companies located on or around its 136 hectare campus. Macquarie University has two colleges, Dunmore Lang and Robert Menzies, and it offers townhouse accommodation in its University Village, which has over 900 rooms. Students living on campus are offered academic support and encouraged to be involved in the on-campus community.

University of Newcastle

The University of Newcastle has campuses in Newcastle (city), Newcastle (Callaghan), the Central Coast, Sydney, Port Macquarie and Singapore. The main campus is in Callaghan, 12 kilometres from Newcastle’s beaches and city, and is known as one of the most naturally beautiful campuses in Australia. On-campus accommodation is offered at the Callaghan and Central Coast campuses, with both private and shared facilities available.

Southern Cross University (SCU)

SCU has New South Wales campuses in Sydney and the northern coastal towns of Lismore and Coffs Harbour. The campuses in Lismore and Coffs Harbour are in proximity to some of the most pristine beaches in Australia. On-campus accommodation is provided in four residential colleges located in Lismore and Coffs Harbour.

University of New England (UNE)

UNE is the only Australian University to have been awarded five stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide for 13 years in a row. Its main campus is in Armidale, in the New South Wales Northern Tablelands, in close proximity to galleries, museums, theatres and music gigs, but also near to heritage-listed national parks, waterfalls and walking trails. UNE has residential colleges, but also assists students to find suitable off-campus accommodation.

University of New South Wales (UNSW)

UNSW is one of Australia’s top-ranking research and teaching universities. Its main campus is located in Kensington in Sydney’s east, seven kilometres from the city centre. With a focus on the scientific, technological and professional disciplines, the university attracts students from 137 countries around the world. It offers on-campus accommodation in six university-run colleges and it also owns a number of off-campus apartments.

University of Sydney

At over 160 years old, the University of Sydney is Australia’s oldest university and it offers the widest range of academic courses of any university in Australia. Its main campus spans the vibrant inner Sydney suburbs of Camperdown, Darlington and Broadway and is home to the beautiful sandstone buildings for which the university is famous. The university offers a range of different accommodation options both on campus in the university’s historic buildings and off campus in one of the world’s top ten student-friendly cities.

University of Wollongong

The University of Wollongong is situated south of Sydney on the coast of New South Wales. Nestled between the mountains and the beach, just to the north of the city of Wollongong, the campus has plenty of open green space. The university also has campuses in Liverpool in Sydney’s south west; in Bega on the south coast of NSW; in Loftus in southern Sydney; in Shoalhaven; and in the Southern Highlands, as well as an overseas campus in Dubai. Student accommodation is provided on the main campus in Wollongong in residential colleges and apartments.

It is divided into the following schools: Business; Computing, Engineering and Mathematics; Education; Humanities and Communication Arts; Law; Medicine; Nursing and Midwifery; Social Sciences and Psychology; Science and Health.

I had my 70,000-word PhD thesis edited promptly and to an exceptional standard by Elite Editing. It sped up my completion date and helped me finish on time, which is the most important thing. The service was fantastic with excellent communication; so I was informed at each stage of the process. I would recommend Elite Editing to everyone, especially those who are close to completing their thesis.

Quick turnaround times and a high level of service and communication made this a valuable and smooth process for me.
