A choice of universities

Adelaide’s three long-established universities are Flinders University, the University of Adelaide and University of South Australia. They have been popular with international students for many years and continue to sit high on international rankings.

The University of Adelaide's Study Abroad and Exchange programs allow students who are already enrolled at universities outside Australia to study in Adelaide for one or two semesters.

The University of South Australia is a modern, progressive and international university. You will have the opportunity to explore a new culture and enjoy a quality education that will prepare you for professional and personal success.
