Engineering and Computer Science Internships in Australia


You will stay in shared apartments with access to a kitchen, and will share bathrooms and other facilities. Coin-op laundry facilities are located a short walk away from the apartment. Location and proximity to internships will vary based on individual internship placements. 

UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location. Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.


Program fees include a group welcome dinner and group farewell dinner. Day to day, students will need cook for themselves and buy their own groceries which can be prepared in the kitchen provided. There will be grocery stores near accommodations. Eating out at Sydney’s many restaurants is also a fun option and readily available.

Excursions & Activities

Short excursions and day trips will be included as part of the program. Excursions may include:

  • Blue Mountains Trip
  • Kayaking
  • Cultural activities

Additional group excursions may or may not be included. You will have ample time to explore and travel on their own. Program staff onsite can provide many ideas on fun places to explore and advice on how to navigate independent exploration.

Get to Know Your Destination

Sydney is the capital that other cities love to hate; with stunning surf and buttery beaches, glorious weather and glamorous people, world-class restaurants and outrageously fashionable bars, she seemingly has it all. And doesn't she know it.
