How to get to ELS Universal English College

When you arrive in Sydney you will land at the international airport, known as Sydney Kingsford Smith Airport International. ELS Universal English College is located in the centre of the city. It will take you about 20-30 minutes to travel to our school or the city of Sydney from the airport.

If you are staying with one of our homestay families or other selected accommodation organised by us, and have requested airport transfer, our driver will greet you at the airport.

If you have not chosen airport pick-up, you can travel by train, bus, taxi, rideshare or shuttle to the city or your accommodation.
