As Australia’s third oldest university and one that is consistently ranked in the top one per cent of Universities in the world, the University of Adelaide provides a distinctive experience and highly stimulating environment for its staff and students.

In a rapidly changing environment, the University of Adelaide is clear about its goals and intentions - we are an international institution that embraces the ideal of the research university, where the union of teaching and research, combined in a search for impartial truth, is fundamental; where the small group learning experience is supported by the innovative use of flexible and leading-edge learning technologies; and the ground-breaking, collaborative work of our world-class researchers and innovators spans disciplinary boundaries in addressing the world's great challenges to deliver social and economic benefits for our communities.

We are guided by our Strategic Plan, the Beacon of Enlightenment.

This vision needs imaginative, innovative and highly skilled people.

Our bold agenda is underpinned by responsive services and productive partnerships, locally and globally.  As we approach our sesquicentennial in 2024, the University of Adelaide is on a transformational journey in which the quality and dedication of our people, the strategic use of our technology resources, and the clarity of our vision will determine our future

The University is committed to principles of equity and diversity, and draws upon talent from across the globe.

I hope you are inspired by our vision, and the opportunity to join us in our quest to become Australia's most distinctive university.

Professor Mike Brooks
Interim Vice-Chancellor and President
