The University of Adelaide is a world-class public research and higher education institution located at the heart of the city of Adelaide, South Australia. Founded in 1874, it’s the oldest higher education institution in Australia and has consistently stood tall among the world’s elite universities. It’s the leading university in Australia and a preeminent member of the country’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive institutions.
Established during an era ravaged by social and religious inequalities, the University of Adelaide set out to shape young leaders for South Australia through education. Abiding by this noble goal, the university grew to become the first institution in Australia to offer degree programs in science. By the 1900s, the institution had expanded into other fields such as law, languages, music, art, philosophy, and medicine.
At present, the university has four campuses. Three of the campuses are located in Adelaide—one of the top 10 most liveable cities in the world. These include the North Terrace (the main campus), Waite, and Roseworthy. North Terrace is the institution’s base for undergraduate teaching, a vast majority of research activities, and administrative operations. The fourth campus is located in Docklands—an inner suburb in Melbourne, Australia. Beyond the four campuses, the institution has a foothold in The Barton, Adelaide Park Lands (National Wine Centre), and Ngee Ann (Singapore). As well, it has partnerships with the Hanson institute and the Royal Adelaide Hospital.
