Over 7,000 international students from more than 90 countries make up approximately 28 per cent of the student population. A truly international outlook requires engagement, and the University has many formal agreements for student and staff exchange, research collaboration and other forms of cooperation with leading universities, research institutes and academies around the world.

With a blend of traditional sandstone and innovative infrastructure, we offer a wide range of facilities, including modern lecture theatres, state-of-the-art laboratories and computer suites, and an outstanding library with over two million items. Since 2007 the University of Adelaide has invested heavily to improve the research and teaching facilities for every student and staff member on our campuses.

The University is one of the most research intensive universities in Australia on the basis of per capita research grant income.

The Research Institutes bring together world leading researchers supported by modern infrastructure and an innovative culture, to tackle national and international research priorities.
The City of Adelaide
With great shopping and beaches, a cafe culture and affordable student accommodation, Adelaide offers a relaxed lifestyle with all the conveniences of city living. Easy to get around Adelaide is a busy and vibrant city, but unlike some larger cities, getting around is quick and easy; traffic jams are rare. Student accommodation is more affordable in Adelaide than in other cities in Australia and much of it is in the heart of the city, meaning plenty of students simply walk to their lectures.
