Study in Adelaide

 Get to know Adelaide

If you’re looking for a vibrant, culturally rich, exciting and beautiful city, then Adelaide may be the choice for you. The city itself is not only beautiful, with its surrounding parklands and green gardens, it is also a very easy city to navigate. Adelaide was one of the only Australian cities to be planned before it was built so the city was smartly laid out as a simple grid of streets.

In and around Adeilade

Central Business District
Adelaide’s CBD has been revitalised in recent years, partly due to the introduction of small bar licensing and the redevelopment of Adelaide Oval. The heritage and cultural institutions of North Terrace remains though as does the extensive parklands that surround the city.

North Adelaide
A great spot for students of Adelaide’s many institutions, North Adelaide is within easy reach of the city centre while retaining a more relaxed feel. The well planned street and classic architecture make the area ideal to live in.

Inner West
This rapidly developing area is filling up with cool cafés, art galleries and boutique shops to add to its existing selection of music venues and pubs. The free tram to the city makes the area a good option for students on a budget.

Unley & Goodwood
These areas contain a range of expensive homes but still supply plenty of townhouses and apartments within the student budget. The major roads in the area are full of boutique shops, brunch spots and dinner restaurants.
