Peer Advisers are available to assist you as you work through the process leading up to your exchange and for any general enquiries. They are students who have completed one or more overseas programs, so have great tips and experiences for you to learn from throughout your application.

Location: Sydney Abroad counter in the Student Centre, Level 3, Jane Foss Russell Building
Times: Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm

Meet the Peer Advisers

Athanasius (Asa) Eskander

I'm studying: Bachelor of Arts/Bachelor of Laws
I went to: Uppsala University, Sweden.     
Highlight: Living in a university town. Uppsala has a tiny population (~200,000, but is still Sweden’s fourth largest city), which means you can bike everywhere (you’ll even see your professors biking around!), you’re always bumping into friends and you get to know the city intimately. It’s an absolutely fantastic experience!

Hannah Bradshaw
I'm studying: Bachelor of Arts (History and Art History)
I went to: University of Bristol, UK.
Highlight: One highlight was experiencing huge amounts of snow during the 'Beast from the East'. (There are so many highlights to choose from!).

William Tai
I'm studying: Bachelor of Commerce/Bachelor of Laws
I went to: London School of Economics Summer School, UK.
Highlight: Checking out the Roman Baths and taking Instagram worthy shots!

Rema Baniya
I'm studying: Bachelor of International and Global Studies and Laws
I went to: National University of Singapore, Singapore
Highlight: The absolutely liberating feeling of exploring the Southern Islands of Singapore by myself while reflecting on the people and places I saw during my journey.

Inbound (Coming to Sydney)

Ask a Study Abroad Adviser or Exchange Officer
Study Abroad Advisers are responsible for a certain region or program, and assist students who may come as direct fee-paying which may include an internship. Exchange Officers are generally responsible for different regions that have an exchange agreement with the University of Sydney. To check if your home university has an agreement with us, consult our list of Exchange Partner Programs

Your adviser or officer is your main contact point throughout your experience. We process your application to Sydney and provide advice and administration services related to your time at Sydney.
