The University of Sydney
At the University of Sydney, we pursue a shared commitment to the transformative power of education. We aim to create and sustain a community in which – for the benefit of both Australia and the wider world – the brightest researchers and the most promising students, whatever their social or cultural background, can thrive and realise their full potential.
Our vision is to build a university where students and researchers form a community of scholars, engaged together in learning, critical enquiry and exceptional research.
To succeed in this vision, we ensure our curriculum is informed by the latest educational advances and evidence-based research. We support world-class teaching that is stimulating and constantly refreshed by new thinking. We develop first-rate facilities, including digital and physical infrastructure. We allow freedom for researchers to pursue their own lines of enquiry. And we invest strategically in cross-disciplinary projects of national and international importance.
In this environment, our students experience a rich intellectual and social life, and can become well-rounded scholars through formal and informal learning, both inside the classroom and beyond. The skills of critical thinking we value are exercised and sharpened by staff and students alike.
We attract the very best researchers and teachers from around the world, and forge strong relationships with industry and community groups. We are respected for our diversity, global orientation, and commitment to working in partnership with Indigenous Australia. Since our inception 150 years ago, we have been producing the next generation of leaders and helping to shape Australian's national and international agenda.
Above all, we prize innovative ideas, rigorous thought, academic excellence and engagement with the wider world. We believe that ideas can make a real difference.http://sydney.edu.au/ (open in a new window)
