From its beginnings in 1850, the University of Sydney was created as an institution to suit the needs of New South Wales, not simply reflect England’s ancient universities.

We can make a strong claim to being the first university in the world to admit male students purely on the basis of academic merit. In the 1880s we were also among the first to admit women on the same basis as men.

Our founders recognised the power of education to change society. We hold that belief just as strongly today.
