The Deirdre Jordan Village Rural Scholarship for Continuing Students is now available thanks to the efforts of Flinders Living. Students who maintain their residency in Deirdre Jordan Village are eligible for consideration for the scholarship.


About the Scholarship:

The University of Adelaide received a gift of approximately 300 acres of property in Bedford Park in 1960 so that it might develop a second campus there. The area was approximately 150 hectares. As a consequence of this, Flinders University was eventually established. After a year of planning and preparation work that came before it, construction finally got begun in 1962. After winning the state election in 1965, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) made the decision to build an independent university on land that was located in Bedford Park. This decision was made in the wake of their triumph. Matthew Flinders, a British adventurer and geographer, inspired the naming of the institution that would become Flinders University, which opened its doors on July 1, 1966. The University Act was largely responsible for the establishment of the university. There were only 400 students and 90 members of the teaching staff present at the school on the seventh of March in the year 1966.

Sir Mark Mitchell and Peter Karmel, who were the first people to move into the university’s housing, were honored with the positions of First Chancellor and Vice Chancellor, respectively. The southern part of Australia is where the majority of Flinders University’s campuses are located, therefore it makes sense that the university would be located there. The principal campus of the university may be found at Bedford Park, which is around 12 kilometers away from the city’s central business district. A number of academic conveniences, such as computer labs, study rooms, a library, and free wireless internet access throughout the building, are available to students on the campus. They have a baseball diamond and a basketball court, in addition to the regular assortment of sports grounds and courts that are typically found at facilities of this type. There is a superb environment for students to develop and extend their academic abilities at the Victoria Square campus, which is located in the core business district of Adelaide. This campus is known as the heart of the university.


Tonsley is home to a campus for Flinders University, which can be found in the town’s namesake. There are a variety of teaching venues spread around the states of South Australia, Victoria, and the Northern Territory in addition to the university’s three core campuses. As a student at Flinders, you will have the opportunity to choose from a wide variety of academic programs in a wide variety of academic fields, such as, but not limited to, business, creative arts, and education, as well as engineering, as well as health sciences, and government. You will also have the opportunity to study in a variety of countries around the world. Hong Kong, Singapore, and Malaysia, in addition to China, each of these places offers a diverse range of career prospects, amongst other things. The educational establishment has a total enrollment of 26,000 students and employs 2,600 individuals amongst its teaching staff, administrative personnel, and other staff positions. This aspect of the university’s membership in the Consortium of Innovative Research Universities is included in the affiliation with the Consortium (IRU).

Students at this university have the opportunity to further their study in a variety of countries, including Canada, China, the United Kingdom, and Germany, thanks to the university’s links with educational institutions in these and other nations. Flinders University has produced some of the most successful and well-known people in the world, many of whom are alumni of the university. Mario Andreacchio, who works in both the film industry as a producer and director, has been awarded an Emmy in recognition of his contributions to the field of television. Alex Frayne is rapidly becoming into a name that people will recognize in the film and photography industries. In addition to being one of the most well-known actresses, Noni Hazlehurst is also a writer, director, and producer, making her a well-rounded creative force in the entertainment industry. Her work has been honored with prizes from the Australian Recording Industry Association (ARIA) as well as the Australian Film Institute. Shine, a film about the pianist David Helfgott and directed by Scott Hicks, was the winner of the Academy Award for Best Picture and was a biography. Hicks directed the film. Hicks was not only the film’s writer and director, but he was also the project’s executive producer. Hicks’ contributions to the film include the following: During the course of his career, he was at one point appointed to the office of Prime Minister of the Kingdom of Tonga. Brendon Coventry, an immunologist and surgeon, is credited with discovering the immunological cycle. He is also credited with making the finding that he discovered it. Christopher Pearson has a great deal of experience in the field of journalism. In the past, he has worked as the editor of the literary magazine “The Adelaide Review” and as a speechwriter for the former Prime Minister of Australia, John Howard. Both of these positions gave him a great deal of exposure to the field.


Poet Sudesh Mishra has been recognized for his work with several different awards and medals. There is a thorough list of well-known people who attended the university either as students or as faculty members. The list may be found on the website of the organization. In addition to having stunning golden beaches and attractive mountainous surrounds, Adelaide’s position gives it a perfect jumping off point for weekend trips to a range of other areas. These excursions can be to any one of a number of different places. According to the findings of the Global Liveability Study from 2016, the city was recognized as one of the top five most livable locations in the entire globe. This finding should not come as much of a surprise. Because it has a lower than average cost of living, this city attracts students from all over the world who want to pursue their education here. It has been established that the cost of living in Adelaide is 14% lower than that of the cost of living in any of Australia’s other major cities. Because of the decreased cost of living expenses such as transportation, rent, and food, students are in a better financial position to spend their extra money traveling across Australia during their free time.
