University of Sunshine Coast International Student Guide

As well as a world-class learning destination, the Sunshine Coast is one of Australia’s
best lifestyle locations.   USC's Sippy Downs campus is centrally located to all the
Coast has to offer from white-sand beaches, stunning hinterland, diverse cafés, restaurants
and entertainment venues, vibrant attractions and markets to the people themselves—genuine and welcoming. These reasons and more are why approximately 2.8 million * visitors,
from around the world, travel to experience the Sunshine Coast's unique casual coast culture
each year. Enjoy these attractions on your doorstep daily. Best of all, most of these experiences
are free to enjoy.

The Sunshine Coast region continues to grow rapidly and now has a population of more
than 300,000 people. As the region develops, so too do the business and employment
opportunities. USC graduates are enjoying greater diversity in career choices as they study
and develop their careers locally.
