With six universities within the central business district and an excellent environment in terms of size, safety, climate and lifestyle, it’s no surprise we have become Australia’s city of students, and a hub for world-class education.

Our primary and secondary schools are highly experienced in meeting the academic needs of international students and offer high quality, internationally recognised education in a caring, supportive environment with future pathways to tertiary education.

South Australian Universities Alumni
The South Australian Universities Alumni UK was established by former Agent General for South Australia, Maurice de Rohan, AO and Dr Robin James Storer in 2002.
Their vision was to create an Alumni network in the UK which would share affiliations with all of the South Australian universities.
The Alumni acts as a resource for graduates – to help form strong, supportive professional and social networks in an international context.
They hold approximately five social, educational or cultural events per year such as wine tastings, Summer drinks, lecture series and state government receptions.
