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
