International students and Global Engagement

Global Engagement has developed a number of initiatives to help support international students engage with the University and benefit from our alumni and community networks.

Global Adelaide

Global Adelaide was launched in April 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the impact of Government restrictions on students' ability to enjoy and explore our beautiful Adelaide campuses and our unique South Australian environment. Since then, Global Adelaide has become a valuable resource for international students, both onshore and offshore, to access social, academic, financial, and wellbeing resources with one click.
