About Us

StudyAdelaide was established in 1998 and markets Adelaide as a centre of education excellence; highlighting the many advantages that international students who choose to live, work and study in South Australia have.

Promoting Adelaide as Australia’s premier learning city, StudyAdelaide’s key marketing activities include targeted global digital campaigns, country specific websites and social media channels, attendance at offshore roadshows and events and agent familiarisation tours to Adelaide.

Once students arrive here, StudyAdelaide goes beyond the welcome and offers a year-long calendar of free and discounted events and activities that give students the opportunity to meet, make new friends and immerse themselves in different aspects of Australian culture.

With principal funding coming from the South Australian government, Adelaide City Council, the University of Adelaide, University of South Australia and Flinders University,  StudyAdelaide is also funded by TAFE SA and 40 participating member institutions.
