About University of South Australia

The University of South Australia (UniSA) was established in 1991 but their foundations date back to the latter half of the 19th century. The forerunners of today’s UniSA were the South Australian School of Art, founded in 1856, the first of several Teacher Training Colleges formed in 1876, and the School of Mines and Industries which was established in 1889. These schools were renowned for providing quality education and for responding to the needs of the nascent colony of South Australia. UniSA’s vision, detailed in Horizon 2020, is that it will be a leading contributor to Australia having the best higher education system in the world, supporting the world’s best educated and most innovative, cohesive and sustainable society.

UniSA educates professionals and citizens to the highest standards, creates and disseminates knowledge, and engages with their communities to address the major issues of their time. UniSA promotes and sustains open intellectual enquiry characterised by high standards of ethics and integrity, academic rigour, excellence and relevance underpin their actions in research and its application, in teaching and learning and in engagement with their communities. UniSA’s teaching and research connect strongly with the issues of their local, national and international stakeholders which includes students, alumni, staff, partners, professions, government, industry, academic peers and community groups.

The university offers degree programs across a wide range of subjects including business, law, education, arts and social sciences, health sciences, information technology, engineering and the environment. It has invested significantly to enhance the student experience and is committed to excellence in teaching and learning through its modern research facilities.
