The University of South Australia (UniSA) is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence. 

UniSA offers over 300-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 91 percent of UniSA graduates 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 (75 percent) remains well above the Australian national average. In addition, the 2015 national Excellence in Research for Australia evaluation reported that 97 percent 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.

This institute is rated 5 Stars based on 8 categories.
