The University of Sydney is located in the heart of Sydney, Australia, only a 15 minute drive from downtown and the Australian coast.
This program is open to a limited number of Creighton students each semester and year. Visiting students are fully integrated into the student body and take courses alongside international and local students. Over 55,000 students are enrolled at the university, and approximately one-third of the student body is comprised of international students.
Participants will pay tuition and fees directly to Creighton University and receive the equivalent at University of Sydney. Students will be responsible for room, meals, visa, and all traveling expenses. If eligible, institutional aid and federal financial aid are portable. Tuition Remission and FACHEX Tuition Exchange may be portable, but are subject to the $3,000 clause as stated above. Please check with the CU Financial Aid Office for specific inquiries. Participants are also required to purchase Creighton's insurance for international activity (purchased through GEO).
Students are required to take 12-15 U.S. credits abroad. The Australian system is approximately 6 Credit Points = 4 U.S. Credits. Nursing students must enroll in 12 credits as well as two online Nursing courses at Creighton. View course options below:
Prior to the start of the semester, there is an "Introduction to Sydney" week as well as an orientation week during which you will get to know the city of Sydney, the campus of University of Sydney, and finish course registration and move-in. The study abroad team at USyd is available to answer any questions and help you get settled in for a successful term abroad.
