You will be staying in shared, dorm-style rooms with shared bathrooms. Hot showers and WiFi are available in all locations. Self-service laundry is available for a fee.
UC Davis reserves the right to change the accommodation location(s). Should this be necessary, we will arrange alternative lodging. Please note that elevators, air conditioners, central heat and other modern conveniences may not be available in all locations.
Two meals are included with the program but all other meals are out of pocket. All remaining meals are self-catered and kitchen facilities are available.
In addition to the internship rotations, your program includes a two-day orientation welcome activities including a Sydney tour and a beach trip (transport and activities included).
From Lonely Planet, Australia: Sydney, spectacularly draped around its glorious harbour and beaches, has visual wow factor like few other cities. Scratch the surface and it only gets better.
National parks ring the city and penetrate right into its heart. Large chunks of harbour are still bush-fringed, while parks cut their way through skyscrapers and suburbs. Consequently, native critters turn up in the most surprising places. Clouds of flying foxes pass overhead at twilight and spend the night rustling around in suburban fig trees; oversized spiders stake out corners of lounge-room walls; possums rattle over roofs of terrace houses; and sulphur-crested cockatoos screech from the railings of urban balconies. At times Sydney's concrete jungle seems more like an actual one—and doesn't that just make it all the more exciting?
Participation in this UC Davis Study Abroad program requires travel to and extended living in a foreign location(s) abroad. UC Davis Study Abroad endeavors to reduce and mitigate risk wherever possible. However, the environments and risks associated with living in these locations are substantially different than those found during a regular course of study at UC Davis. All participants must download and review the following information prior to departure. Any questions should be directed to the Program Coordinator.
Due to the nature of the program activities—which includes working with live animals—you may be at risk of contracting rabies if exposed to an infected animal. UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services recommends that you receive the rabies vaccination prior to departure. Consult with UC Davis Student Health and Counseling Services or your private healthcare physician about this further.
