In order to provide financial assistance to undergraduate students who are enrolled in an Honours research project in the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at Flinders University, a number of scholarships have been established within the College of Nursing and Health Sciences. Their mission is to increase Honours involvement and research across all disciplines in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
About the Scholarship:
In 1960, the University of Adelaide was granted 150 hectares of land in Bedford Park with the goal of constructing a second campus, which is how Flinders University got its start. Construction got underway in 1962 after planning had begun in 1961. The Australian Labor Party (ALP) chose the Bedford Park property for an independent university after winning the State election in 1965. It was named after British explorer and geographer Matthew Flinders on July 1, 1966, when the University Act founded Flinders University. There were only 400 students and 90 faculty members in attendance when courses began on March 7, 1966. The university’s first chancellor and vice chancellor were both named Sir Mark Mitchell and Peter Karmel. Located in the southern part of Australia, Flinders University has several campuses. The university’s main campus is located in Bedford Park, 12 kilometers from Adelaide’s CBD. There are numerous academic resources available, such as study rooms, a library, free Wi-Fi, and computer laboratories, among others. It also has a cricket pitch, football, soccer, and baseball fields, as well as weight rooms, cardio rooms, fully equipped gyms, and a cricket pitch. The Victoria Square campus, also in Adelaide’s CBD, is a great place for students to grow and develop their academic skills. Flinders University has a campus in Tonsley as well. In addition to the three major campuses, the university has a number of teaching sites spread across South Australia, Victoria, and the Northern Territory. Students at Flinders University can choose from a wide range of programs in a wide range of academic disciplines, including business, creative arts and education; engineering; health sciences and government; humanities; information technology; law; medicine; psychology; public health; social sciences; and social work. In addition, courses are offered in Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, and China.
There are about 2,600 faculty and staff members working at the university, which has a total enrollment of over 26,000 students. INU and the Innovative Research Universities are both affiliated with the university (IRU). With the help of partnerships with universities in Canada and China as well as the United Kingdom and Germany, the university offers a wide range of opportunities for students to study abroad and exchange ideas with other students from across the world. The alumni of Flinders University are some of the most successful and renowned in the world. Film producer and director Mario Andreacchio has earned an Emmy Award for his work in television. Filmmaker and photographer Alex Frayne is a rising star in the industry. One of the best-known actresses, Noni Hazlehurst has also written, directed and presented on stage and screen. The Australian Film Institute and the ARIA have recognized her work. Scott Hicks directed the Academy Award-winning biopic of pianist David Helfgott, Shine. Hicks also wrote and produced the film. Former Prime Minister of Tonga, Siale’ataongo Tu’ivakano. Immunologist and surgical oncologist Brendon Coventry has been credited with discovering the immune cycle. As a former editor of the literary magazine “The Adelaide Review” and a speechwriter for former Australian Prime Minister John Howard, Christopher Pearson is no stranger to journalism. Sudesh Mishra is an award-winning poet. The university has a long list of notable alumni. Apart from that, Adelaide is surrounded by golden beaches and breathtaking hilly landscapes, and it is within easy reach of a variety of weekend vacation places. It’s no surprise that it was ranked among the world’s top five most liveable cities by the Global Liveability Study, which was conducted in 2016. Students from all over the world are drawn to the city because of its inexpensive cost of living. According to a research conducted in Adelaide in 2019, the area is 14 percent more cheap than other major cities in Australia. The lower cost of transportation, rent, and food means that students have more money to spend on enjoying the city and exploring the rest of Australia during their spare time.
