UK and Ireland

The University of South Australia has continued to expand its partnerships in the United Kingdom and Ireland and has recently signed agreements with a number of high profile universities and institutions.

One key partner is University College London where the strong relationship has resulted in UCL Engineering moving to the Future Industries Institute at UniSA’s Mawson Lakes Campus.

Key partners

University College London (United Kingdom)   

The University College London is ranked 14th worldwide by Times Higher Education World University Rankings.

In April 2015 a partnership was established which committed University College London (UCL) and the University of South Australia (UniSA) to work together to develop teaching and research in South Australia in fields that include minerals processing, advanced manufacturing, sustainable future energy production and protection, and care of the environment. The agreement which was signed at joint events in Adelaide and London, signals a program of future collaboration between UniSA’s Future Industries Institute (FII) and the UCL Faculty of Engineering. The collaboration includes an industry focused PhD program, joint curriculum development, student and staff exchange programs, public engagement and joint academic appointments.

In December 2017, UCL Engineering moved to their new home base in the Future Industries Institute at UniSA’s Mawson Lakes Campus.

UniSA and UCL are now collaborating on the delivery of the delivery of the following programs:

  • Master of Science in Global Management of Natural Resources
  • Master of Science in Data Science (International)
  • Master of Science in Sustainable Energy Systems

King’s College London (United Kingdom)   

King’s College London is one of the top 25 universities in the world (2016/17 QS World University Rankings) and among the oldest in England. King’s has an outstanding reputation for world-class teaching and cutting-edge research.

King’s has a particularly distinguished reputation in the humanities, law, the sciences and social sciences including international affairs. It has played a major role in many of the advances that have shaped modern life, such as the discovery of the structure of DNA and research that led to the development of radio, television, mobile phones and radar.

UniSA’s collaboration with King’s College London will provide UniSA researchers with new opportunities to study at the Menzies Centre as part of the Aboriginal and Contemporary Australian Studies Fellowships.

Trinity College Dublin (Ireland)   

Trinity College Dublin (TCD) is Ireland’s oldest and most prestigious university. In 2013 UniSA and TCD signed a MOU between Hawke Research Institute and TCD’s Long Room Hub to deliver closer collaboration on humanities research. The Vice Chancellor visited his former institution and signed the agreement in October 2013 and Professor Anthony Elliott (Director, Hawke Research Institute) delivered a public lecture at TCD in April 2014.
