Location: 

KU students can study in Australia, the world's largest island and smallest continent.  Whether you are interested in exploring the Outback, studying the life of koalas and kangaroos, or climbing the Sydney Harbor Bridge, Australia has a number of opportunities for personal exploration and development.

Australia is geographically nearly the same size as the continental United States although its population is comparable to the State of Texas' population. Home to 22 million people, Australia boasts fantastic natural beauty. It has beautiful white beaches throughout most the country, numerous mountain ranges to the south and the red deserts of the Outback. Off the Queensland Coast, the Great Barrier Reef is the largest coral reef system on Earth and stretches more than 1,600 miles. Students who study in Australia can also travel to New Zealand, throughout the Pacific Rim and in Southeast Asia, all of which offer opportunities to experience different cultures.

KU's study abroad programs in Australia offer high quality academics at top ranked universities. Programs are available to accommodate students with various academic backgrounds. Students can fulfill general education requirements, major courses and/or take junior/senior hours while studying abroad in Australia.

Wollongong is Australia's ninth largest city and lies 50 miles south of Sydney. The city of Wollongong is a vibrant, bustling, multicultural city in the Illawarra region with a population of around 350,000. It is known as the gateway to Australia's Leisure Coast, where long, sandy beaches, rain forests and expanses of national park land offer all that outdoor enthusiasts desire. Stunning beaches in and around Wollongong are famous for their clean sand, aquamarine ocean and stunning natural rock settings. Students can also take in breathtaking views from the various Wollongong lookout points at Bulli Pass Scenic Reserve, Mount Keira Lookout and Mt. Kembla.
