Undergraduate Student Profiles
"When I first started at the University of Sydney, I was surprised to find how openly I could structure my degree. I now major in Chinese and Japanese. This means I can focus on language studies but am able to gain insight into the culture of both countries through exchanges with worldwide top-ranking universities."
"The Media and Communications degree is incredibly unique as it allows you to try everything from print journalism to video production without pigeonholing students. I've been able to do everything from hosting my own radio show to interning with some of Australia's largest media organisations."
"My Bachelor's degree in International and Global Studies (Honours) has not only equipped me with extensive knowledge in international relations, but has also enabled me to apply my knowledge in this area at an advanced level by undertaking 20,000 word original research project. Studying and living in Sydney is the choice that I'll never regret."
"The Bachelor of Liberal Arts and Science degree gave me the freedom to study what I wanted, but at the same time, encouraged me to broaden my horizons and consider subjects outside my major. The lessons that I learned from this degree, I believe, have given me solid foundations for whatever I want to achieve in the future."
"I chose to study at the University of Sydney based on the Political Economy Department's reputation. Their honours program equipped me with the skills and drive to pursue my PhD, building on the well-rounded education I received throughout my undergraduate degree."
"From editing an international affairs magazine, writing for The Sydney Morning Herald, to hitting the streets of Seoul as a reporter on a university internship, my degree has taken me further afield than I ever imagined."
Alice Evatt - Bachelor of Arts (Advanced) (Honours)
“Despite the wealth of options available to me after I completed my higher education, I chose Sydney University because it is widely known to provide a holistic university experience that extends beyond being among Australia’s premier academic institutions.”
"Studying at the University of Sydney was my first choice, not because I grew up in the same city but because of the university's international reputation in the areas that I am most interested in."
"What I have learned here is invaluable. It has put me on the path to become a better writer in my areas of choice. I have written four screenplays and finished a book, which I hope to publish."
“For me, the most important thing about studying at university was that I would be able to sample from a wide range of areas before deciding to focus on one, and the University of Sydney was the only place that offered the diversity that I wanted.”
