Travel arrangements

Travel to and from Campion College is at the participant’s expense.

For any students traveling from regional areas or interstate, we will organise group transfers to and from Sydney Airport and Toongabbie Train Station. You will be asked to indicate your travel intentions on the registration form and provide flight/coach/train details closer to the program start date.

 

Instructions for participants arriving and/or departing via the airport

The group pick-up from Sydney Airport on Day 1 of the program will take place at 2.00pm. We encourage you to book flights that arrive by 1.30pm.

The group transfer from Campion College to the Airport on Day 4 of the program will leave around 2.30pm. Even though this is well before the end-of-work rush, Sydney traffic can be unpredictable and it may take up to 90 minutes to arrive at the airport. We encourage you to book flights from 5.00pm so you have ample time to reach the airport, check-in and relax before your flight.

Instructions for participants arriving and/or departing via Toongabbie Station

The group pick-up from Toongabbie Station on Day 1 of the program will take place at 3.30pm. Toongabbie Station is on the T1/T5 Train Lines (click here to view the Sydney Trains Network Map).

The group transfer from Campion College to Toongabbie Station on Day 4 of the program will leave around 2.30pm.

“Summer Program was such an amazing experience. The opportunity to live on campus and experience life as a residential student has removed any hesitation I had about moving interstate to study.”

“The Summer Program was a perfect mix of social and academic activities. I loved the fact that some of the discussions we had in the academic sessions naturally spilled out into free time. It was really fun to be surrounded by likeminded people!”

“The Summer Program was undoubtedly the best part of my whole Summer! It was so cool to meet students from all across the country and be able to bond over our shared interests. I’ve made so many great friends in such a short amount of time!”
