With students from over 85 different countries, Flinders University values cultural diversity. Our alumni have built careers and lives that enrich communities across Australia and throughout the world.
Flinders University offers around 300 different courses, including a range of undergraduate courses, postgraduate courses and research qualifications.
We prepare our graduates to accept the challenges of their profession wherever it may take them, to become global managers, doctors, accountants, engineers and scientists.
As a member of the Innovative Research Universities, Flinders is focused on collaborative research training that makes a difference, specializing in areas such as health, education and environmental sustainability. What's more, many of our students gain real experience through undertaking Australian and international work placements. This means our graduates are better positioned in the job market.
We recognize the growing importance of taking a global perspective and so we pride ourselves on offering a culturally enriched learning environment.
We are proud of our achievements and innovations in university teaching and learning. Recent awards show that Flinders offers some of the best university teachings in Australia.
Flinders has been recognised regularly in the national ALTC Awards for University Teaching since 2001.
Most notably, in 2004 and 2006 we won the Prime Minister's Award for Australian University Teacher of the Year, the nation's top prize for tertiary teaching.
This is an extraordinary accomplishment, and it places Flinders as one of Australia's pre-eminent universities.
Research is a core activity at Flinders. We believe investigation and enquiry are essential to an academic institution. We aim to be known locally, nationally and internationally as a research university.
We are consistently one of Australia's most successful research universities.
Over AUD$9 million of our funds are allocated each year to support our research programme, which involves around 700 academic staff, as well as full-time research staff, general staff - in the areas of technical support, research administration and staff development and training - and about 900 higher degree research students.
The majority of our research is funded through external research grants.
In recent years we have focused strongly and successfully on winning support for projects involving industry partners.
Flinders is an outward-looking and culturally-inclusive university that meets exacting national and international standards in both teaching and research.
