Students are expected to wear business attire on an everyday basis. As many students live on campus throughout the whole year, many recreational activities are provided. You can relax and hang out with other students at the game and pool tables or TV and lounge areas on the campus. Besides this, there are 3 restaurants on campus and all meals are included for students during study terms. In case you are looking for a little bit more action, there is also a soccer field, basketball / tennis court, in-ground swimming pool, gymnasium, sunbathing area and a BBQ area.

The Sydney campus is home for students enrolling into the master degrees at Blue Mountains and for the third year students of the Bachelor studies. This campus is located right in the business district of the city. You are literally just minutes away from gyms, swimming pools, recreational centres, entertainment venues, restaurants etc. Sydney is known as one of the most liveable cities in the world and you can find here everything from beach life to arts, from music to sports and numerous shopping malls.
The school is closed during the Christmas break. Many internatioanal students use this time to go travelling around Australia or find some local work in Sydney. In case you want to stick around close to the campus, then check out the backpackers places in Katoomba or Sydney or look for some holiday rentals at www.stayz.com.au.
Both campuses are easily reachable by public transport. It is really easy to get around in Leura, Sydney and the surrounding areas. The Leura campus is located about a one-hour drive west of Sydney and it takes about 2 hours by train.
