Australia Studies Centre
The Australia Studies Centre is a semester-long program, sponsored by the Council for Christian Colleges and Universities, with a focus on the arts. The Sydney-based Wesley Institute provides students with an opportunity to live in this coastal city, to experience Australian culture, and to study visual, theatrical, musical arts. During the semester students will travel to Blue Mountains and Jenolan Caves and to the capital city of Canberra. Students live with Australian families within a 10 - 15 minute walk to the campus.

“The most rewarding and interesting part of my experience was finding God in what seemed to be very vacant spaces. On our trip to the Outback it was amazing to see how deep and rich God's creation is.”
