Study Abroad in Wollongong, Australia

Study abroad in Wollongong with its proximity to Sydney, but without the pace and crowds, and a great laidback beach-side lifestyle. But don’t be fooled, Wollongong is still big enough to support a slew of bars, restaurants, arts and culture. Sitting beneath the spectacular Illawarra Escarpment, on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, the city is bordered by the Royal National Park to the north and Lake Illawarra to the south. Study abroad in Wollongong and enjoy this magnificent coastal environment!
