Australiemag présente l'université d'Australie du Sud


With more than 32,000 students, around 6,000 of whom are international students, it is South Australia’s largest university and offers degree programs in business, education, arts, social sciences, health sciences, information technology, engineering and the environment. Programs are designed with strong professional emphasis and in partnership with industry.

The University of South Australia is Australia’s university of enterprise, globally connected and engaged in helping solve the problems of industry and the professions. Its teaching is industry-informed, its research is focused on end-user application and it creates knowledge that is central to economic and social prosperity.

The university maintains a strong commitment to teaching and learning, and ranks in the top 10 nationally for the proportion of its staff with a doctorate (73 per cent).

Its MBA program consistently ranks amongst the best in the country, holding a five-star rating for seven consecutive years (as awarded by the Graduate Management Association of Australia).

Its rankings continue to grow. It is ranked in the top 50 world universities under 50 years old by both Times Higher Education (#35) and QS (#25) world university rankings. Times Higher Education also ranked the University of South Australia amongst the world’s best international universities.

The university continues to develop a strong research environment and focuses its efforts on understanding scarce resources, future industries and cancer prevention and management, among other themes.

It ranks in the top one third of Australian universities for research income, and in the Excellence in Research for Australia 2015 evaluation more than 97 per cent of its assessed research was deemed to be of world-class standard or above. A hallmark of the university’s research is the close, collaborative engagement it enjoys with its many industry, government, collegiate and community partners, which ensures that the outcomes are relevant to its end-users but also that the questions asked reflect real-world issues.

Partnerships include Hewlett-Packard and the State Government to build an innovation and collaboration centre; the Centre for Cancer Biology to research genomics and personalised medicine; and the Port Adelaide Football Club to develop high performance in sport.

The university also engages closely with the communities it serves. Its Samstag Museum presents a changing exhibitions program of contemporary visual art, and its Hawke Centre public lectures are devoted to generating ideas and solutions to achieve cohesive, sustainable societies.

The university has a strong equity mission and was the first university in South Australia to have a Reconciliation Action Plan. It is also a proud supporter of vital community events including the Adelaide Festival, WOMADelaide’s Planet Talks and the Santos Tour Down Under UCI World Tour cycling race.
