About the Scholarship Provider:

The University of Adelaide is formally known as The Institution of Adelaide. Adelaide is the capital of South Australia and is located on the coast. Walter Watson Hughes, a wealthy copper miner and community benefactor, founded the settlement in 1874. The first ever lecture at Adelaide Institution, the third-oldest in Australia, was given in Latin. The school only offered a Bachelor of Arts degree at the time.

Dr. Augustus Short, a former professor at Christ Church College and an alumnus of Oxford University, served as the university’s first vice-chancellor. Previously, he held the position of professor at Christ Church. Short made significant efforts to ensure that the University of Adelaide remained at the cutting edge of technological development. By incorporating contemporary fields of study like science, literature, art, and philosophy, he hoped to distinguish it from the more traditional Classics curriculum then in use at Oxford. His dream came fulfilled in 1882, when the institution established a reputation as the pioneer in Australia for conferring scientific degrees


At now, the university’s goal is to “find new information,” “pursue innovation,” and “train tomorrow’s educated leaders who are autonomous, creative thinkers with an international view.” It’s part of the elite Group of Eight consortium of research-intensive Australian universities and has five distinct schools and colleges from which to choose for a degree. Science, Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, Medicine, and the Arts are the five departments that make up the university’s faculties. About 25,000 pupils and 3,600 teachers and administrators call Adelaide, South Australia, home. Thirty percent of these pupils are international and represent more than a hundred nations.

Since forming a collaboration with the Ngee Ann-Adelaide Education Centre in Singapore, students from all over the world can now study at the university’s four campuses in South Australia and earn their degrees from either Australia or Singapore. South Australia is home to the University of Adelaide. Hong Kong, France, the Netherlands, and other countries are also good options for study abroad programmes. These possibilities are open to you right now. There have been five Nobel laureates and over a hundred and ten Rhodes Scholars among the university’s alumni. Apart from Robin Warren, who established the link between peptic ulcers and the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori), Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard is also an alum. The Adelaide squad takes great pride in their chances of making history and is motivated to achieve this goal.


Our employees like working in a positive and supportive environment where they can share ideas with other skilled professionals and further their careers through regular training. Our student body includes citizens of more than a hundred different countries. Many of our faculty members are dual citizens or were born in countries other than the United States, contributing greatly to the diversity of our institution. According to the QS Graduate Employability Rankings for 2020, Australia was named the winner of the 2018 Award for Excellence in Research in Australia. Currently, (this date) is the latest evaluation date. EIU (Economist Intelligence Unit) forecasts.

Faculty of Professions, Faculty of Arts, Faculty of Mathematics, and Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences make up the university’s academic structure. All teaching and research activities in the natural sciences are directed by the Faculty of Sciences. These faculties are made up of many subunits, giving students a wide range of options for courses that will help them pursue their individual passions. Included here could be, but are not limited to, institutions of higher learning dedicated to the study of Civil Engineering, Mining Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Architecture, Music, and the Physical Sciences. The university provides education at the master’s, specialist’s, and doctoral levels. In addition, it makes it easier for students to participate in exchange programmes at different schools.
