Welcome to Sydney
Australia’s most famous city, which enchants your eyes when you see all the natural beauty amid skyscrapers and the madness of a big city. Known for the beautiful beaches with natural pools and breathtaking architectural structures, Sydney offers several lifestyles in one city; from the calm of deserted beaches and quiet neighbourhoods to busy beaches and neighbourhoods that never sleep.
However, all of this in one place has its price. It is, in fact, the most expensive city to live in, in Australia, in addition to the high price of public transport as well. In contrast, job offers are greater compared to other traditional exchange destinations in Australia. In addition to multiple attractions, the city has a unique climate with very hot summers and harsh winters.
Sydney is a city fully prepared for the high number of tourists it receives, everything harmonizes perfectly well, even in the rush of everyday life, there’s no way you won’t be able to appreciate this beautiful city!
Tourism and international education
Sydney is a gateway to Australia for many international visitors. It has hosted over 2.8 million international visitors in 2013 or nearly half of all international visits to Australia. These visitors spent 59 million nights in the city and a total of $5.9 billion. The countries of origin in descending order were China, New Zealand, the United Kingdom, the United States, South Korea, Japan, Singapore, Germany, Hong Kong, and India. The Sydney Opera House is an important tourist attraction and symbol of Sydney.
International education contributes $1.6 billion to the local economy and creates demand for 4,000 local jobs each year.
Sydney is the highest-ranking city in the world for international students. More than 50,000 international students study at the city’s universities and a further 50,000 study at its vocational and English language schools.
There were 451,000 businesses based in Sydney in 2011, including 48% of the top 500 companies in Australia and two-thirds of the regional headquarters of multinational corporations. Global companies are attracted to the city in part because its time zone spans the closing of business in North America and the opening of business in Europe. Most foreign companies in Sydney maintain significant sales and service functions but comparably less production, research, and development capabilities. There are 283 multinational companies with regional offices in Sydney.
