At the University of Sydney, we are committed to enriching our community by bringing together people from all social backgrounds. We welcome promising students from around Australia and the world, and invest time and money to make sure they are properly supported while they study.
Our academic and teaching excellence is founded on principles of diversity and equity and as a leading Australian university we have a responsibility to continue to live by these principles. On this website you can find out more about our social inclusion initiatives at all levels in the University.
You’ll also find useful information and resources for students and staff, the latest news and events in our community, and contact details if you’d like to get in touch with us.
