Sydney University World Magazine Launch

30 October 2009

The November issue of the Sydney University World Magazine is now available.

This magazine is a tri-annual publication that focuses on the University's international activities with specific regions. This edition marks the first publication dedicated to our European partnerships.

Some of the achievements highlighted in this edition include:

  • Our Chairs of Departments of European languages talk about innovations in language teaching including online teaching, increased student exchange opportunities and more culture based subjects which are revitalising European language learning.
  • Our new Study abroad internship program and the work experiences of three German students involved in the program.
  • Professor Alex Frino, Professor of Finance, and students in his PhD program talk about the state of financial markets in Europe after the Global Financial Crisis.
