The University of South Australia (UniSA) is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence. With more than 33,000 students, the university is South Australia’s largest and was the youngest Australian institution to be named in the top 50 of 2014 The Times Higher Education’s Top 100 global universities aged under 50.

UniSA offers over 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.

A university's reputation is determined largely by the quality of its graduates, and more than 90% of UniSA graduates now in full-time work are employed in professional occupations within four months of graduation.

Committed to accessibility

UniSA remains strongly committed to ensuring the opportunities offered by our programs are available to a diverse range of students.  In 2013, the university conducted an historic, world-first online consultation initiative, unijam that brought together staff, students, alumni and special external guests. The ideas and discussions generated during unijam were vital in the production of ‘Crossing the Horizon’, our strategic action plan 2013-2018.

Committed to excellence

UniSA’s commitment to excellence is also reflected in the calibre of its academics and researchers. The proportion of our staff holding doctorate qualifications (69%) remains significantly above the Australian 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.
