Sydney campus

57 Foveaux St, Surry Hills, NSW Australia 2010

Our campus is located in the heart of Surry Hills, an inner Sydney suburb that has long been a melting pot that sums up Australia’s magical mix of cultures, heritage and entrepreneurial spirit. Just a short, three-minute walk to trains and buses at Sydney’s busy Central Station, ANCB is close to the Sydney City hustle and bustle. You will find a mixture of business offi es as well as residential buildings eateries and shops nearby. Today the main image is “chic” and “metro” but Surry Hills is known for its strong sense of community.

The campus is a fantastic, fun and interactive place to study. There are many great opportunities to experience while on campus. You can make an appointment at any one of our Student Clinics ranging from massage to aromatherapy.

ACNT offers both on-campus and online study options.

Students can study face-to-face at either our Sydney or Brisbane campuses. This traditional face-to-face study method offers a high level of motivation and personal interaction preferred by some students. On-campus learning encourages interaction between students and lecturers.

ACNT also offers students the opportunity to study some of its nationally accredited programs via a flexible and online program meaning teaching and learning take place online rather than in a classroom. This allows for complete flexibility to study when and where you want. This study option meets the needs of students who regularly travel or live outside of the capital cities.
