Sydney is a cosmopolitan city with fantastic weather, excellent academic facilities a multicultural society ready to welcome you. With an efficient public transport system that includes buses, trains and ferries you will be able to navigate the city with ease.

SGSCC International is located across two sites in Southern Sydney. The Jannali Campus is located in the natural oasis of the Sutherland Shire, just 25km from Sydney’s CBD. The region offers a stretch of pristine surf beaches, four spectacular national parks and channels of sparkling waterways. The area is also rich with history, it is the birthplace of modern Australia, founded in 1770 by Captain James Cook, it’s also home to Australia’s first National Park.

Cronulla is blessed with Sydney’s longest stretch of sand and is the only beach in Sydney accessible by train. The Shire hosts an urban hub of buzzing cafes and restaurants, leading fashion retailers, art galleries and events.
