Welcome to Sydney
A great number of international students live in the local area because of its proximity to universities, TAFEs, colleges and other educational providers.
We welcome our temporary residents who have moved to Sydney to study. The City worked with Insider Guides to put together the 2013 Sydney 'International Student Guide', available for download below, which we hope will help you discover everything there is to love about your temporary hometown. Please note: The download is in 2 separate parts.
The guide covers:
- dining and entertainment

Chinese New Year float
Celebrate the Year of the Horse! The first international student float in the Chinese New Year parade on 2 February 2014 is looking for willing participants to take part.
You don't need to be a Chinese student to take part – in fact we're looking for international students from different backgrounds.
Complete the registration form, available for download below with the flyer, which contains contact information for the float organisers.
Applications close at 5pm Saturday 14 December 2013.
We worked with the NSW Police Service to put together personal safety tips in a variety of community languages to help you avoid crime and remain safe during your stay in Sydney.
Leaders and ambassadors
In 2013 the City trialled its international student leadership and ambassador (ISLA) program, with 40 leaders and ambassadors successfully graduating from the 6-month training course and work experience program in December.
