The University of Adelaide was founded in 1874 with a noble goal: to prepare, for South Australia, young leaders shaped by education, rather than birth or wealth, in a settlement free of old-world social and religious inequalities.
Research excellence has defined our history. In a world rapidly transitioning to an information-based economy, so will it define our future. We strive to build an ever-stronger nexus between our research and local economic needs, leveraging creativity and knowledge to create abundant economic opportunities. And we continually enhance links between research and education to help shape a new generation of entrepreneurs able to translate new knowledge into societal benefit.
International Student Support provides the following services to all current international students of the University:
Student Life Counselling Support provide free, confidential, short term professional counselling support to currently enrolled students, to address issues that may be affecting their study and life.
Adelaide University Sport, affectionately known as 'The Blacks' for over 100 years, is a leader in developing a healthy and active lifestyle on and off campus. We can offer students, staff, alumni and the wider community with opportunities to join nearly 40 different clubs, represent the University in intervarsity and social sporting events, take part in leadership opportunities or just give you a reason to put down the books and get active with our events.
