Sydney is one of the great cities on our planet. Its energy is young, dynamic and multi-cultural. It has great weather and a real beach and surf culture. Sydney has a population of almost 5 million which means that no matter what your favourite sport, culture or entertainment, you will find it in Sydney. Be careful: The Sydney lifestyle is addictive! Many of our Sydney students go back a second and third time.
