A place to live large
Quality academics meet a spirited, multicultural vibe, with adventure in easy reach.
Awesome rock formations. Mindboggling architecture. Marsupials found only here. Australia is full of surprises. And though the English language simplifies communication for many U.S. students, society here is anything but homogeneous.
With more than 10 prestigious schools that range from big-university urban to smaller campuses with the great outdoors in easy reach, IFSA excels at helping students find the right fit for their journey Down Under.
Whether you end up in Sydney, Adelaide, or somewhere in between, we’ll pull you into the local culture with activities and excursions that show you the Australia beyond your host campus, from picturesque wineries to discussions with First Nations People.
