Students take regular university courses with students from the host country or with other international students. The University of Sydney is Australia's first University. Ranked 50th in the world in the 2018 QS World Rankings and consistently within Australia’s top three universities, the University of Sydney is a leading research university and is committed to offering the very best teaching and learning environment for students. Students will be required to select the classes they would like to initially enroll in prior to arrival, but they will have through the first two weeks of the semester to add and drop classes to get a class load that suits them. Our advisers work with the students in the months leading up to the semester to have a pool of 6-8 units of study that are approved both at home for credit and in Sydney to enroll (i.e. meeting pre-requisites) so the students will be able to easily change things around in the first couple weeks without starting from scratch to get all the approvals. Students studying on this program through Olin are not eligible to participate on the internship component of the program.

Courses with a study level classified as junior means that it is an introductory level subject. Units of study classified as Senior means that it is above and introductory level and will likely have a handful of prerequisites.

Student Life: Students can participate in a "MATES abroad" mentoring program that is optional and free of charge. After taking a short survey, we will match incoming students with a local University of Sydney student with similar interests and areas of study. There are also student involvement and organization opportunities From wine and cheese club to Disney movie appreciation club, there is something for everyone! There is also a Global Exchange Society (GEX), which is for returned exchange students, current exchange students and any students interested in potentially studying abroad.
Student involvement opportunities 
On-Site Support: 
  Estimated Program Price: When you study abroad for a semester or a year for academic credit, you will be charged tuition by Washington University at a rate equivalent to tuition on campus for the corresponding time period. WU tuition covers only the educational and administrative costs of the study abroad program. WU tuition does not cover any study abroad program costs for room, board, transportation, personal expenses, passport or visa fees. Such costs are charged separately either by WU, the program sponsor, or a third party. Scroll to the top and select the appropriate term under "Budget Sheets" to view estimated program expenses.. 

Orientation: All students participating in Olin semester programs are required to enroll and participate in pre-departure (INTL 300A, 0.5 credit) and post-departure (INTL 300B, 0.5 credit online while abroad) coursework. A non-credit pre-departure orientation will be required for all students on fall programs.   
There is a required on site orientation (this will be held on January 7 for the Spring 2019 semester). During the on-site orientation, students will be able to meet with their academic advisors to discuss courses, add/drop dates, ect.
