UniSA’s Mount Gambier Campus is a major tertiary education centre for the state’s South-East and surrounding areas, including South-West Victoria.

Experience flexible learning and quality teaching, with the benefit of a relaxed environment, practical learning opportunities, small class sizes, tailored support services and strong community connections.

Plus, if you decide to study locally in Mount Gambier, you can generally organise to fit all your on-campus classes into 1-2 days. This gives you flexibility to work part-time or travel home if you live in surrounding areas.


Not only have I been able to challenge myself, I've been able to work part-time, stay near my support networks and build my life in the local area. The best part about the education degree was completing placements in schools where we could put our learning into practice. Practicum allowed us to find meaning and purpose in what we were being taught.

We offer degrees in key areas such as education, nursing, midwifery, and social work, along with alternative entry programs, reflecting in-demand areas in the region.

You’ll also reap the benefits of smaller class sizes, with more one-on-one time with your lecturers and tutors, and additional support when needed. Our highly experienced teaching staff are also there to help students studying a blended mode of on-campus and online learning.

In social work, there's never a dull moment and we learn to take the good outcomes with the ones that don't go the way we hoped. Knowing you can support people makes all the difference though. I started in an admin role for a domestic violence service and after seeing the amazing work that case managers did with clients, I also wanted to help people.

Student experience

Your university experience doesn’t just stop at studying, there is also a rich, social campus life. 

Explore our wide range of social activities, clubs, and volunteering opportunities. There's always something for you to get involved with such as race days, winery visits, lunches, movies, and so much more. The central piazza and canteen also provide great shared spaces where you can get something to eat, socialise or just relax. If you're interested in building your leadership skills, we also offer unique scholarships that will give you the opportunity to develop new initiatives and events to enhance the overall student experience. 

It’s important that you feel supported during your studies. Students have access to a full range of services, including study support, personal counselling, disability services and career services. Our Campus Central team is located on-site and can point you in the right direction. We also have tailored services for Aboriginal students, including study assistance and mentoring opportunities. 


Our Mount Gambier Campus is home to purpose-built study spaces and state-of-the-art facilities, including the $12.5 million Learning Centre. We have simulated learning environments for nursing and midwifery students, a social work studio, a high-tech gallery space, advanced IT infrastructure, as well as study and social spaces.  

We’ve also invested in the technological capabilities of the Campus, which boasts one of the nation’s fastest network systems, ensuring that students have access to the best internet speeds during their studies.
