Engagement with India

Collaborating for impact
We are committed to deeper engagement with India by investing in research, collaborating with industry partners and supporting students to achieve their full potential.

At the University of Sydney, we build strategic global partnerships that change lives through high‑impact collaborations, leadership in research, teaching and international experiences.

We provide opportunities for our staff and students to exchange ideas with the brightest minds in India by partnering with leading Indian institutions and scholars on commercialisation and research to support the continued economic growth and social development of both India and Australia. 

We also offer scholarships for students who are Indian citizens.

Our collaboration in action

Welcoming Indian students

Once Indian students join our friendly community, we offer plenty of support to make their transition to life in Sydney as easy as possible. With a vibrant community of more than 250 clubs and societies, we have something for everyone.

We host an array of subcontinental food, cultural activities and events on campus. The City of Sydney celebrates festivals such as Diwali, Holi Mahotsav and Parramasala, and we host the oldest cricket club in Australia, with a range of teams suited to all player levels.
