Beautiful one day, amazing the next! There is no doubt Australia has it all. So, why not study in two of the most liveable cities in the world – Sydney or Melbourne? They’re lively, vibrant and safe, making them the ultimate study and play destination.
When you’re not studying, there are always plenty of things to do. From sightseeing, swimming at Bondi, exquisite dining experiences, bushwalking in the Blue Mountains, watching an AFL game at the MCG or shopping along the iconic Chapel Street, you will never be bored.
Our Sydney campus is a two minute walk from Central Station. Surry Hills is recognised as one of Sydney’s most creative suburbs and is also home to many of Sydney’s exciting new cafés and interesting restaurants.
A couple of minutes walk from the iconic Flinders Street Station and Federation Square, our Melbourne campus sits in a similarly stylish and accessible location, surrounded by eclectic cafés, art galleries and shops.
