The lifestyle you experience in a regional town is quite different from being in a capital city. Smaller towns have a sense of community that can mean you make easier connections with your peers and enjoy a more inclusive environment. Students at UniSA’s regional campuses experience the same flexible learning and quality teaching as students at city campuses, with the benefit of the relaxed lifestyle, strong community engagement, relevant practical opportunities, small class sizes and tailored support services.
With fewer students on campus, class sizes are smaller. There is more one-on-one time available with your tutors and lecturers. Teaching staff in the regional centres are attuned to the needs and challenges of students in a regional setting, and support staff are on hand to help students manage blended study modes. Academic staff often work in research and industry and develop curriculum content based on the knowledge gained during real-world projects.

Jess McMullen, Bachelor of Business (Property) Bachelor of Business (Management)
Jess McMullen chose to study her first year of a double degree in property and management at UniSA externally from Whyalla, while working in the office of her family’s construction business. “Studying externally taught me great time management skills and required high levels of self-motivation. It was a great foundation for the rest of my degree,” Jess explains.
Jess chose to move to Adelaide for her second year to study with other business students on campus, “I love being on campus at UniSA, getting involved in events and other social groups.” Certainly thriving after the move, Jess was named 2015 Student Ambassador for Property and also chosen as a board member of the Commerce Student Association.
“Studying internally has also allowed me to make invaluable key industry contacts.”
“After graduation I see myself working in the property industry in either commercial/industrial sales or valuation. I believe UniSA has provided me a great environment to develop excellence by both theory and practical learning and I aim to maintain this level of quality in my future career,” Jess says.
