Globally focused and locally engaged, Flinders University is making a difference through innovative research, excellence in teaching and learning, and exceptional student experience.
Flinders University is headquartered in South Australia with a footprint that extends through regional and remote Australia.
Ranked in the top two per cent of world universities1, we are number one in South Australia for student/teacher ratio, undergraduate starting salary, full time employment for postgraduates, and undergraduate student demand.2
In an era of disruptive change, Flinders University is growing its international reputation as a world leader in research, an innovator in contemporary education and a source of enterprising graduates equipped to change the world.
Unique innovation offerings are supported by the Flinders New Venture Institute, a global entrepreneurship leader3 located at our high-tech Tonsley campus, while our Victoria Square campus provides a study space in the heart of the city. An award-winning student hub at main campus fosters interactive learning in a digitally enabled environment.
With a focus on rural and remote area education through our Northern Territory Medical Program, we support students to complete a Flinders Doctor of Medicine in Darwin through facilities in Alice Springs, Katherine and Nhulunbuy. Rural medical, nursing, and allied health courses delivered at our regional centres are identical in structure to those in Adelaide.
Internationally, we deliver joint courses with leading universities in China, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Singapore, and Indonesia.
Our research strengths include biomedical and clinical sciences, culture, policy and society, health and human behaviour, molecular science and technology, defence, engineering, water and environment. Our research contributions are rich and growing, with some 90 per cent ranked at or above world class.4
From late 2020 the new Flinders train station connects our main campus to Tonsley. The adjacent Flinders Village development has commenced and will include research facilities, student accommodation and shops, and other amenities in a thriving urban centre.
We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses for some 26,000 students. Our 5,000 international students come from more than 100 countries, and our main campus features on-site accommodation for 560 students and an international pathways centre.
