University of Sydney Australia

University of Sydney Australia

From its beginnings in 1850, the University of Sydney was created as an institution to suit the needs of New South Wales, not simply reflect England’s ancient universities. A founding principle was that academic merit alone regardless of religious beliefs or social upbringing would be the test for admission. We can make a strong claim to being the first university in the world to admit male students purely on the basis of academic merit. In the 1880s we were also among the first to admit women on the same basis as men.

These pages provide a brief overview of the history of the University of Sydney and some of the major figures of our history, including those who studied here and went on to have a major impact after graduating.

Our founders recognised the power of education to change society. We hold that belief just as strongly today.

Sydney University Campuses

The University of Sydney has a network of teaching campuses spread throughout the Sydney area. The main Camperdown / Darlington campus is well known as the home of our historic sandstone buildings, gargoyles and cloisters, lawns and courtyards. But this is just one part of the picture.

Across our campuses the University has lecture theatres, teaching spaces and studios with state – of – the – art facilities, laboratories with the latest technology, clinical schools to support professional development and experimental farms and research stations to put theory into practice.

Here is a guide to the University’s campuses. Each campus page tells you how to get to the campus and what faculties you’ll find there, as well as providing links to campus maps, contact details and parking information.
