University of Sydney – About
The University of Sydney (informally known as Sydney Uni0) is an Australian public research academic institution of higher learning in Sydney, Australia. It was established in the year 1850. It is Australia’s first university and is recognized as one of the world’s foremost universities.
The university is recognized as one of Australia’s six sandstone universities. Its campus, spreading across the inner-city suburbs of Camperdown and Darlington, is placed in the top 10 of the world’s most beautiful universities by the British “Daily Telegraph” and the American “Huffington Post.” The university has eight academic faculties and university schools, where they offer bachelor’s, master and doctoral degrees.
The QS World University Rankings placed the academic institution as one of the world’s finest 25 universities for academic status, and top 5 in the world, and first in Australia for graduate employability. It is one of the first universities in the world to admit students exclusively on academic excellence and opened its doors to women on the same level as men.
In the late 1960s, the University of Sydney was at the center of rows to start courses on Feminism and Marxism at the major Australian schools. At one point, newspaper reporters descended on the university to cover brawls, protests, secret memos, and a walk-out by David Armstrong, an esteemed philosopher who held the Challis Chair of Philosophy from 1959 to 1991, after students at one of his lectures openly requested for a course on feminism. The Builders Laborers Federation placed a green ban on the university after two women tutors were not allowed to teach a course but the issue was quickly resolved internally.
Degree Level: Armenian Studies Scholarship is available to scholars who want to embark on Research level programs at the University of Sydney.
