Global Citizenship Award (GCA)The Global Citizenship Award (GCA) is an extra-curricular program providing distinctive international and leadership opportunities to prepare you as a global citizen. GCA participants are given exclusive access to speaker series events and practical skills development seminars around the key themes of global citizenship, leadership in an international context, community, and diversity.

The University of Sydney aims to provide accurate program information at all times, however, we reserve the right to temporarily suspend programs or not renew agreements without prior notice. In the event of this, your Exchange Adviser will assist in the placement of exchange applicants at other suitable destinations. New programs may also be added from time to time. You are advised to double check destination availability, program conditions and other eligibility and selection criteria before proceeding with your application.
