The University of Sydney
The University of Sydney is a leading comprehensive research and teaching university committed to the transformative power of education and to fostering greater knowledge and understanding of the world and its people.
The University is unique among Australia’s leading universities in the breadth of disciplines it offers and has more than 51,000 enrolled students, around a fifth of whom originally come from 145 other countries.
The University’s research strategy aims to deliver multidisciplinary solutions to real-world problems, by uniting the expertise of bright minds. It recognises the limitations of traditional disciplinary boundaries in combatting the problems facing 21st century society.
As a result, Sydney has committed significant support and large-scale investment to help researchers explore new frontiers of knowledge in areas of national and global importance. Funding agencies recognise the success and impact of Sydney research, and the University is among the highest recipients of competitive funding in Australia.
