Student of EBS doing an outdoors flair activity in Sydney.

Why should you choose Sydney?

Sydney is an Aussie’s paradise. Year-round sunshine, epic nightlife, and more beaches than you can shake a stick at. So where better to begin your next adventure than EBS Sydney?

In a city like this one, there’s always something to do. You can mix with our local student crowd in artsy neighbourhoods. Spend an arvo at the beach for a swim or a surf. And when evening arrives, you and your coursemates can dive headfirst into Sydney’s nightlife scene (for research purposes, obviously).

More great news for budding bartenders: cocktail bars are a pretty big deal here. You’ll find everything from old-school speakeasies to the edgy, experimental sort. So as an EBS Sydney student, this means you’ll never be short of inspiration. And as an EBS graduate, you won’t be short of job opportunities, either.

Limited time only: To help Australia’s bartending community through this tough time, we’re awarding scholarships to new EBS Sydney students. If you’re eligible, you could save up to 40% on your International Bartender Course. Apply now.

The Sydney school

Our school is right in the heart of the trendy Chippendale district, a neighborhood crammed with galleries, cool cafés and throwback bars. There are heaps of shops and restaurants near us, as well as a hefty supermarket and a shopping centre. You’ve even got Chippendale Green just around the corner, the perfect spot for a bit of flair practice.

We’re just a 10-minute walk from Central station where you can hop on the train to Newtown, the home of our EBS hostel. Being this central means you’re super well connected to the rest of Sydney, too. An ideal base for exploring the city, or taking a day trip.

EBS Sydney accommodation


We’ve got our very own hostel just a 10-minute train ride from the school. This refurbished hostel comes with 54 beds, plenty of chill areas, a kitchen-diner space and tons of activities.

You’ll find us in the Newtown neighbourhood, Sydneysiders’ go-to place for thrift shops, vintage book stores, street art and bars. There’s also a big student population here, so you’ll fit right in.
