Melbourne is a city of firsts: It was the first capital of the federation of Australia and is the birthplace of many aspects of Australian culture, including its film and television industry, its impressionist art movement, and both traditional and contemporary music.
In addition to its cultural and artistic sensibility, Australia’s second largest city is also at the forefront of the country’s developments in science and information technology, making it a great destination for students with an eclectic mix of interests. N.U.in Australia participants study at the Swinburne University of Technology (SUT), a private university that shares Northeastern’s focus on integrating classroom study with experiential learning. SUT’s Hawthorn campus, where N.U.in participants take classes and live, offers access to a top-tier library, wireless internet, and a wide range of student organizations and activities. Participants also have access to N.U.in-sponsored opportunities to connect with the culture in Melbourne and other locales along Australia’s southeast coast.
To participate in N.U.in Australia, students must be 17 years old on the date of departure.
