|About the Program:|
University of the Sunshine Coast is already proving to be one of our most popular destinations. And who wouldn't want to study in a place named after sunshine? If you are a student of business, education, science, or social studies, why not spend a semester Down Under at USC?
Located close to the cities of Maroochydore and Noosa, USC is just a short distance from renowned surf beaches, hinterland forests, and next to the Mooloolah River National Park. Families of wild kangaroos also call the campus home and the Sunshine Coast is only about one hour by car from Brisbane, a major metropolitan city. The famous Australian Zoo, home of Steve Irwin, The Crocodile Hunter, is also right next door to USC. Its beautiful scenery, warm climate, friendly people and a safe, relaxed atmosphere are all along the 65 kilometers of beaches that's called the Sunshine Coast.
USC is a regional university with approximately 3,500 students and 400 staff. A smaller university means smaller class sizes and a friendly campus. The university is comprised of three departments or "faculties" -Arts and Social Sciences; Business; and Science, Health and Education. As a study abroad student, you have access to all facilities, resources and student support services on campus and enjoy an extensive activity and orientation program.
