This week’s Cool Program is described as the ultimate academic getaway. It’s Boston University’s Sydney Internship Program, it’s a world-class city, it’s far away, it’s English-speaking yet retains a Pacific-rim vibe and has a large and attentive local staff that can help you both study and get the most out of an internship. What better way to start to focus on a career path?
Sydney and indeed all of Australia offer unbelievable opportunities to explore, from the Opera House, great shopping, and local beaches to Melbourne, the Great Barrier Reef, and even farther afield to New Zealand and Fiji. While participating in this program your housing will be on the outskirts of downtown near Darling Harbour. Studio apartments may consist of shared studio-type arrangements or large suites housing a larger number of students, but will always incorporate access to kitchen facilities as well as shared living space and bathroom/shower units. This gives students a wonderful chance to live in their own space and explore the many options for learning and fun in Australia.
Most programs require students to take a popular Australian Culture and Society course. It’s taught in the BU Sydney Academic Center, which houses the program’s academic facilities, classrooms, library, computer room, and staff offices. (Students who’ve been on the Sydney program have especially high praise for the five full-time and three part-time BU support staff.)
