About the Institution

                                           

Visit the UniSA home webpage!

UniSA is a globally-focused, locally-engaged institution established on the dual principles of equity and excellence. The institution houses more than 36,156 students and 2396 staff. It has five campuses (four in Adelaide and one in Whyalla) and an annual revenue in excess of $457 million. As the leading provider of international education in the state we also are a significant contributor to South Australia's economic growth and prosperity. UniSA offers more than 400 degree programs across a wide range of subjects including business, law, education, arts and social sciences, health sciences, information technology, engineering and the environment.

We are committed to educating professionals, creating and applying knowledge, engaging our communities, maintaining cultural diversity among our staff and students, and providing equitable access to education.

We also have been long recognised for our links with industry and in 2008 were awarded the inaugural Ashley Goldsworthy Award for sustained collaboration between business and higher education by the Business/Higher Education Round Table (BHERT).

Our approach to teaching and learning is student-centred, focused on higher education outcomes and delivered through flexible program arrangements. We recently reviewed all of our programs to ensure their relevance and currency.

At the same time we have increased our research profile and performance, as evidenced by a 50 per cent increase in research income over the past two years. Our focus is on supporting strategic and collaborative research in multidisciplinary teams and on the commercialisation of intellectual property.

Credit Transfer:  4.5 UniSA credits will transfer at 4 credits at MSU.
