Raising the Bar

Free events in Sydney bars
At the University of Sydney, we believe in taking education out of the lecture theatre and into our city.

From airlines and Quidditch to some of the greatest films and business innovations, the pub has been home to its fair share of aha moments. That's why we're hosting Raising the Bar Sydney, because we believe that education and innovation shouldn't be restricted to the lab or lecture theatre. We're excited to make education a part of a city's popular culture through transforming local city bars into classrooms.

So on 17 October, join 20 of our brilliant academics as they share their innovative research and 'raise the bar’ on education in some of our favourite Sydney bars.  

Tickets for 2018 will be available in September. 

In 2017, thousands of locals flocked to some of Sydney's best bars to learn about the innovative research being done at the University of Sydney.
