*In addition to the USSC pre-departure sessions, the University of Sydney Business School will be conducting compulsory pre-departure training sessions in the last week of October. All students are required to attend these sessions and prior travel plans will not be excused.

Please note:

The last week of the LA Placement Program overlaps with the first week of Semester 1, 2018 at Sydney.

The US Studies Centre and the Business School will work with each participant to minimise the impact of this overlap, however, it is the responsibility of each student to catch up on any work missed and no special consideration will apply.
