Get support and advice through our dedicated Mentoring Program, where you are paired up with a current student from the University of Sydney who will provide you with ongoing support, advice and guidance to help you prepare for university life.

Our teachers are experts in their subject area and in teaching international students. They will share their knowledge with you in an engaging way and always be available to answer any questions you may have. You will learn how to study independently, work in groups, conduct research and deliver presentations, all the key skills you will need to succeed at university.

We are located in Waterloo, a suburb that is 5 minutes away from Sydney city centre, with bus services available from outside the building and Green Square train station is a short walk away.  The area is also home to many funky restaurants, cafes and bars, making it a great place to live and study if you want to be where the action is!
