UniSA is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence.
With more than 35,000 students, the university is South Australia’s largest and was ranked in the top three per cent of more than 10,000 universities worldwide – in the QS World University Rankings.
We offer more than 400 degree programs across a wide range of subjects including business, law, education, arts and social sciences, health sciences, information technology, engineering and the environment.
We believe a university’s reputation is determined largely by the quality of its graduates, and are proud that more than 90% of our graduates now in full-time work are employed in professional occupations.
Committed to accessibility
UniSA remains strongly committed to ensuring the opportunities offered by our programs are available to a diverse range of students.
We recently established UniSA College to provide a pathway for people who have not traditionally accessed university study, and are investing more than $1 billion over the next decade in new physical and virtual infrastructure to provide students and staff with the most up-to-date facilities.
Committed to excellence
Our commitment to excellence is also reflected in the calibre of our academics and researchers. The proportion of our staff holding doctorate qualifications (69%) remains significantly above the national average.
In addition, the 2012 national Excellence in Research for Australia evaluation reported that 86% of our assessed research was rated world-class or above.
As well as making a significant contribution to our economy and society, the university is an integral partner in a range of community events, including the Santos Tour Down Under UCI World Tour cycling race, and the Adelaide Festival of Arts.
