Adelaide is a cosmopolitan, multicultural city of about 1.3 million people who welcome new residents and visitors from around the world. It is regularly ranked among the world’s 5th most liveable cities, and in recent years everyone from the New York Times to Lonely Planet has named it one of the places tourists should visit. When you study here, you get the best of both worlds.
Our city is safe, clean, stable and well planned, with a high standard of living and a great range of services, but it also offers an exciting program of arts, cultural and sporting events and a vibrant dining scene. It’s also recognised as one of the most affordable in Australia, both for shopping and having fun.
Our Mediterranean climate (warm dry summers and cool winters) means we spend a lot of time outdoors. There’s a long line of sandy beaches just 20 minutes west of the CBD, scenic hills to the east, and many recreation parks (including opportunities to meet kangaroos and koalas).
Most importantly, Adelaide is recognised as an education city that caters for the needs of international students and has produced an impressive list of high achievers, from Nobel Laureates and Rhodes Scholars to world-leading researchers.
