Program Description

University of the Sunshine Coast
Queensland, Australia

The University of the Sunshine Coast is a comprehensive university with an enrollment of about 6,000 that allows students to experience the Australian culture and to earn academic credit toward their Winthrop degree. The campus is located on the edge of Cooloola National Park. Brisbane is located approximately 90 kilometers south of the campus.


Regular bus service connects the campus to beaches and major shopping centers. Queensland’s Sunshine Coast offers an atmosphere of sophistication and relaxation. With sub-tropical climate, the beaches provide excellent waves for surfing and calm water for fishing and swimming. The Glasshouse Mountains offers spectacular outlooks at the plains below. There are a wide variety of restaurants, nightclubs, art galleries, and other exciting attractions such as the Australia Zoo and Underwater World.


Students can select classes from the following: Biotechnology, Communication, Creative Writing, Design, Education, Environmental Science, International Business, International Relations, Journalism, Management, Marine Science, Marketing, Nursing Science, Public Relations, Sport and Exercise Science, and Tourism. Some offer an in-depth look at Australian history, politics, environment, business and other courses which focus on the broader global perspectives.

Both offer comfortable, fully-furnished accommodations a short walk to the University (connected by pathways) with local shopping nearby. Student apartments are approximately a 10minute drive or 20-minute bus ride to the beach. Both complexes offer fully-furnished apartments with private bedrooms and bathrooms and living and kitchen facilities shared with three other students. The complexes also offer amenities such as swimming pools, athletic courts, barbecue areas, and laundry.
