Flinders University is an Australian university that appeared in 1966 and became the second university in South Australia. Initially, it was conceived as the second branch of the University of Adelaide: for its construction in 1960, land was allocated on the territory of Bedford Park. However, in 1965, it was finally decided that this campus would become a separate Flinders University.

More than half a century has passed since the founding of Flinders University, and during this time the institution has achieved success in various types of activities: conducting innovative research, providing quality training and involving the community in its life activities. Today, Flinders University is part of the International Network of Universities and Innovative Research Universities in Australia.

One of the main reasons for pride at Flinders University is the ability to create an excellent setting on the basis of its campuses for productive study and living! That is why more than 24 thousand students from different parts of the globe come here from year to year. This forms a multicultural community on the territory of the university, consisting of students from more than 90 countries.

Flinders University offers its students higher education programs related to broad areas of study. All available courses are divided into six colleges, which make up the structure of an Australian university:

  • College of Business, State and Law
  • College of Education, Psychology and Social Work
  • College of Humanities, Arts and Social Sciences
  • College of Medicine and Public Health
  • College of Nursing and Medical Sciences
