Sydney's cultural institutions include the famous Sydney Opera House. It has five halls, including a large concert hall and opera and drama theatres; it is home of Opera Australia - the third-busiest opera company and the world, and the Sydney Symphony under the leadership of Vladimir Ashkenazy.
As a dynamic cultural hub, Sydney has many fine and internationally known museums, galleries and art spaces, such as the Art Gallery of New South Wales and the Museum of Contemporary Art. Sydney hosts many different festivals and some of Australia's largest social and cultural events. These include the Sydney Festival, Australia's largest arts festival.
The University of New South Wales
The University of New South Wales (UNSW), founded in 1949, is a research-focused university based in Kensington, a suburb in Sydney, New South Wales, Australia.
OSC courses take up residence in New College, which is one of the residential colleges of the Unviersity of New South Wales. It is a beautiful campus, and one that lends itself to the intensive revision courses that we offer in Australia.
