The University of Adelaide unites and serves those striving to change the world—and themselves—for the better. It’s a place where history is made.
Established in 1874, we’re home to over 29,000 students and 3,000 staff, all striving to create progress. For our community. For all.
This is a university of outstanding quality—ranked among the top 1% globally—in the heart of the city of Adelaide.
We’ve made a habit of breaking new ground. We were our country’s first university to welcome female students. The first to offer degrees in science and business. The first with a conservatorium of music.
Among those who’ve studied, taught, or conducted research here are five Nobel Laureates; Australia’s first female prime minister; the first Australian astronaut to walk in space; Australia’s first female Supreme Court judge.
And our bold spirit continues to drive us to excel today. In research, we’re rising to challenges in a huge range of fields—with work universally rated world-standard or above^. While in education, we’re recognised among the top 100 universities globally in 23 different subject areas†.
We can’t wait to see what’s next.
