University of Adelaide

University of Adelaide

Introduction:
Consisting of five faculties, the University offers its students a range of high-quality studies within the Sciences, Health Sciences, Humanities and Social Sciences, Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, and The Faulty of the Professions.

There are currently 25,000 students enroled over the university’s four architecturally stunning campuses, including North Terrace, Roseworthy, Thebarton and Waite, with 3159 staff, 35 sporting clubs, 90 student union clubs and 130,000 worldwide alumni. The university also boasts 104 Rhodes Scholars, five associated Nobel Prize winners and one former Australian Prime Minister.

The University has played a vital role in Adelaide’s social, economic and intellectual development for over 130 years, as a pioneer in science and music education and a leader of gender equality, as the first university in Australia - and second in the world - to grant degrees to women.

But it’s not all work at the University of Adelaide; the UniBar is a popular place for both students and graduates, frequently playing host to noteworthy live gigs. With such a glowing record of alumni and a reputation for both world-leading research and for fun campus life, it’s hard to argue that the University of Adelaide is not a university for the future, both of Australia and the World.
