University of Adelaide

By every measure, the University of Adelaide—a member of Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight research-intensive universities—stands tall among the world’s leading institutions of learning and innovation.

The clearest indication of this is our consistently high rating by the most respected international assessment bodies: 

QS World University Rankings, Times Higher Education and Shanghai Jiao Tong’s Academic Rankings of World Universities (ARWU). 

All consider us one of the top 1% of universities worldwide and the top university in our state.

We’re equally proud that the vast majority of our research is rated ‘above or well above world standard by the Australian Research Council’s Excellence in Research Australia program.

We count among our distinguished alumni: 

five Nobel Laureates; over 100 Rhodes Scholars, including Australia’s first Indigenous recipient; and Australia’s first female prime minister and Supreme Court judge. 

Many of our staff and teachers are internationally recognised leaders in their fields. 

And we attract a diverse student body of over 27,000 from more than 90 countries.
