The Education Destination : Australia The Education Destination 2011
Australia – The Education Destination 67 souTh ausTralIa sa: attracting international students More and more international students are choosing South Australia as their education destination. International students come from many countries around the globe. The largest numbers of students in South Australian institutions are from China, India, Malaysia, South Korea, Hong Kong, Vietnam and Japan. Many students choose Adelaide to gain qualifications in management and commerce. Cultural studies are increasingly popular, and there has been a sustained growth in engineering, technology and health science. In addition to assistance from their institutions, international students are also supported by the group, Study Adelaide, which has a year-long calendar of free activities and events to help students settle in. World-class universities Three world-class Australian universities have campuses in the city and across the State. An American university and an English university have also recently set up in Adelaide. In total, these universities enrol around 60,000 students. They cover the spectrum of advanced education at both undergraduate and postgraduate levels. The University of South Australia, Adelaide University and Flinders University are all public institutions, following a tradition of excellence that has nurtured Nobel laureates, Rhodes Scholars and other highly-accomplished alumni. Many postgraduates gravitate to the universities’ centres of teaching and research excellence which include music, engineering, biology, business and wine. Flinders University is set in the foothills to the south of the city on a garden campus, with lakes and tall trees. Adelaide University’s central campus is right downtown. The University of South Australia has campuses located both centrally and to the north of the city, in the high tech and manufacturing precinct. All three universities also have smaller regional campuses. There are state-of-the-art computer labs, science laboratories, libraries and other facilities. » souTh ausTralIa unIVersITIes flinders university – w ww.flinders.edu.au university of adelaide – w ww.adelaide.edu.au university of south australia – w ww.unisa.edu.au carnegie Mellon (heinz college) – w ww.heinz.cmu.edu/australia university college london school of energy and resources, australia – w ww.ucl.ac.uk/australia/ study adelaide – w ww.studyadelaide.com Image (right): Adelaide Fringe ‘The wine-growing regions around Adelaide offer practical experience for students involved in related courses.’
