About The University of Adelaide

At the University of Adelaide, we unite and serve those striving to change the world—and themselves—for the better. This is a place where you can make history. Established in 1874, we’re home to around 29,000 students and 3,000 staff, all working to create…
progress. For everyone in our community. For all. Ours is a university of outstanding quality—ranked as a top 100 global university—in the heart of the city of Adelaide. Adelaide has made a habit of breaking new ground. We were Australia’s first university to welcome female students. The first to offer science and business degrees. The first with a conservatorium of music. Among those who’ve studied, taught, or conducted research here are Australia’s first female prime minister; space-walking astronaut; Indigenous Rhodes Scholar; and female Supreme Court judge, state governor and university chancellor. That’s in addition to the 2021 Young Australian of the Year; 2020 Australian of the Year; and five Nobel Prize winners. Our bold spirit continues to drive us to excel. In research, as our state’s only member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive universities, we’re rising to global challenges in a huge range of fields, with work universally rated world-standard or above*. In fact, our output—frequently collaborative with industry and government—is recognised as ‘well above’ world standard in 41 distinct areas. These range from space sciences, materials engineering and AI, to cardiorespiratory medicine, crop production and environmental science. As a teaching university, we’re ranked among the top 100 globally in 24 different subject areas†. In eight of those—including computer science, and dentistry we’re top-50. We also lead our state in graduate employability‡. Our degrees combine deep discipline knowledge with broad, transferable skills, ensuring graduates are well prepared for a multidimensional career in the future workforce. * Excellence in Research Australia, 2018 (the most recent assessment date). † Total unique entries across QS World University Rankings by Subject (2022), Academic Ranking of World Universities by Subject (2022) and Times Higher Education World University Rankings by Subject (2022). ‡ QS Graduate Employability Ranking, 2022
