Australia Sydney Opera House Sunset 274058450

Sydney is Australia’s oldest and largest city and is the nation’s economic and financial hub. Located on the southeastern coast, Sydney is home to over 4.6 million people and is known the world over for its stunning landmarks such as the Sydney Harbor Bridge and Opera House, it’s amazing cuisine, and diverse populace. Is it any wonder that so many participants want to intern abroad in Sydney?

“I have learned a lot about some things that run smoothly in the Australian education system as well as things could use improvement... During staff meetings, I have gotten a glimpse of the inner workings of a public school. Every day I unconsciously compare Australian v. American public schools. This experience has allowed me to evaluate both and I hope to take some ideas back with me and into my future career. I have learned a lot about what I want in my own classroom."
