Program Notes
Note: Programs may open for applications before May 1, 2021. Please check program pages regularly or follow @UDGlobal on Instagram or Twitter for updated information on applying for a 22W study abroad program.

Traveling and studying abroad during a global pandemic poses new challenges and requires accepting a higher level of uncertainty than in the past. Students who choose to study abroad at this time must be prepared to adapt to the evolving situation and must take responsibility to act in accordance with the rules, regulations, and recommendations of UD, their program leadership, and legal authorities of their home and host country. Due to the rapidly changing and unpredictable global and local response to COVID-19, these rules, regulations and recommendations are subject to change at any time.

The University will continue to monitor the ongoing situation with COVID-19 (coronavirus) as we approach the departure date for this program. Please reach out to your program coordinator or faculty director with questions and continue to monitor the UD coronavirus webpage for updates.

If UD decides to cancel a study abroad program, we will communicate directly with affected students. In this case, the University of Delaware will reimburse the cost of program fees, tuition and flights (if purchase was advised by CGPS).
Program Description

Study entrepreneurship and workplace culture in Sydney, Australia - one of the world’s thriving start-up hubs. Sydney is a truly global city known for its world-famous landmarks – the Sydney Harbour Bridge, Sydney Opera House, Bondi Beach, and more. Experience Sydney’s endless kilometers of beautiful public beaches and park trails, ocean reefs, nature and unique wildlife, positioned next to a dynamic metropolitan setting.

Based at our centralized location in the city’s Central Business District (“the CBD”), you’ll interact with active entrepreneurs as you study workplace culture. In addition, you’ll learn about regional cultural differences through visits to some of Sydney's bustling suburban centers such as; Cronulla Beach, Wollongong, and excursions focused on the local and global entrepreneur, including a signature excursion to Port Macquarie and northern national parks.

Our program includes breakfast each day and all meals each day of our signature excursion to Port Macquarie, and for the entire program an OPAL transport card good for all trains, buses, and ferries. Our program includes two Sydney-based excursions to co-working spaces to interact with entrepreneurs in practice in the city. We have planned for two excursions outside of the city as well. The first is to South Cronulla, a smaller suburb south of the city, accessible by train where we will interact with many local entrepreneurs. The second is to the northern national parks and Port Macquarie, a smaller Australian center for entrepreneurship. In both Cronulla and Port Macquarie we will be working with the Rydges-brand business centers to meet their connections, participate in workshops and interview multiple entrepreneurs about their ventures. Our program also includes a warm welcome orientation tour of Sydney on our first weekend including sites such as the Sydney Opera House, Ferry Ride to Manly Beach, The Harbour Bridge Pylon Climb, Bondi to Coogee Beach walk, Darling Harbour, and more.

Students will reside in double or quad dorm-style rooms in a city setting. We have options for single rooms and smaller group rooms as well due to COVID contingency plans.

Whether you’re interested in the practice of entrepreneurship, functionality of workplace culture or the local “down under” culture, this Winter Session in Sydney, Australia is your chance to experience a multi-cultural nation and global hub of entrepreneurship.

The Program Fee includes housing and breakfasts (excluding Port Macquarie excursion), some additional meals, all excursions and related transportation, and international medical insurance. Students are responsible for the remainder of their meals.
