The attraction of Adelaide

With Adelaide’s international-student population growing at a rate higher than the national average, it seems there is more to this city than a relatively low cost of living and an inviting Mediterranean climate.

For over 170 years, Adelaide has actively supported those who wish to learn. Its educational institutions are amongst Australia’s oldest and they continue to win accolades and rank highly on international listings. The city has produced over 100 Rhodes Scholars and three Nobel Laureates.

Whether you want to gain an internationally respected degree or vocational qualification or engage in post-grad research, there is an option to suit your needs. Adelaide is home to internationally recognised universities and an extensive Vocational Education and Training (VET) system. Students wanting to learn English have a variety of flexible programs to choose from. English language students will have ample opportunity to practise their newfound skills as this English-speaking city is open and friendly. And because Adelaide’s academic institutions enjoy a high level of integration, it’s easy for you to move, or graduate, from one to another.

While Adelaide offers the same lifestyle and quality education opportunities as other cities in
Australia, statistics suggest it costs 18% more to live in Sydney, 15% more to live in Melbourne, 7% more to live in Perth and 5% more to live in Brisbane. This means your dollar will go further in Adelaide. Accommodation is also more affordable in Adelaide than it is in many other of Australia’s cities. Adelaide students can live in the heart of the city and still be within a 20-minute public transport ride of the beach.

Despite Adelaide’s large international-student population, it hosts about 230,000 Australian students so there’s plenty of scope to immerse in the local culture. The city is safe, welcoming and alive with many festivals, galleries, wineries, award-winning restaurants and a dynamic sporting environment. It is also home to a large multi-cultural community. In fact, it was the first Australian city to invite people of all cultures and religions to settle.

In Adelaide there is no shortage of places to visit on your weekends and semester breaks. South Australia is everything you might imagine this huge continent to be: the state is larger than Texas; it has 5,000km of coast; and the interior is home to rolling hills, sheep stations, vineyards, gold mines, salt lakes, ancient mountain ranges and the mighty outback deserts. As for those famous koalas, kangaroos, echidnas and platypuses, there are plenty – perhaps best seen on world-famous Kangaroo Island.

Located halfway between Sydney and Perth, nowhere in Australia is too far. A flight from Adelaide to Sydney, for instance, is under three hours and can cost less than US$70. And thanks to Adelaide’s new International Terminal, you’ll be enjoying more direct flights than ever before.
