About the Scholarship Sponsor:

The Institution of Adelaide is the official name of Adelaide’s public university. Adelaide, the state capital, sits on the coast of South Australia. In 1874, Walter Watson Hughes, a copper miner and local philanthropist, established the town. Adelaide Institution, third oldest in Australia, presented its first formal lecture in Latin in 1876. Bachelor of Arts was the only undergraduate degree available at the school back then.

Former lecturer at Christ Church College and Oxford alumnus Dr. Augustus Short was the institution’s first vice-chancellor. Before that, he was a professor at Christ Church University. In order to keep the University of Adelaide at the forefront of technical advancement, Short exerted a great deal of effort. To do this, he aimed to set the program apart from the standard Classics curriculum at Oxford at the time by including modern topics such as science, literature, art, and philosophy. In 1882, his wish came true as the university became the first in all of Australia to award degrees in a variety of scientific disciplines.


The current mission of the institution is to “find new information,” “pursue innovation,” and “train tomorrow’s educated leaders who are autonomous, creative thinkers with an international view.” It offers degrees from a total of five different faculties, and it is a member of the Group of Eight, an alliance of Australia’s top universities with a focus on research. There are a total of five faculties at this school; they are the faculties of Science, Engineering, Computer and Mathematical Sciences, Medicine and the Arts. Adelaide is home to about 25,000 students and 3,600 faculty and staff. Of these students, 30% are foreign and come from over 100 different countries.

The university has four locations throughout the state of South Australia, and through a partnership with the Ngee Ann-Adelaide Education Centre in Singapore, students are now able to complete their degree requirements in both Australia and Singapore. The University of Adelaide is located in South Australia. Besides the aforementioned nations, others to consider for study abroad programs include Hong Kong, France, the Netherlands, and others. These opportunities are available. Five Nobel laureates and 110 Rhodes Scholars are just a few of the illustrious graduates from this university. Other notable alums include Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard and Robin Warren, who discovered the connection between peptic ulcers and the bacterium Helicobacter pylori (H. pylori). The Adelaide team’s prospects of making history are a source of pride and drive as they push forward in pursuit of that objective.


Our staff members get to collaborate with other talented people, advance their careers through ongoing training, and perform their duties in a welcoming and inclusive setting. More than a hundred different nationalities are represented in our student body. Our faculty is remarkably diverse, with many individuals holding dual citizenship or being born in countries other than the United States. Australia won the 2018 Award for Excellence in Research in Australia, according to the QS Graduate Employability Rankings for 2020. (the most current evaluation date). 2021 * EIU (Economist Intelligence Unit).

The academic curriculum of the university is organized into five faculties: the Faculty of Professions, the Faculty of Arts, the Faculty of Mathematics, and the Faculty of Health and Medical Sciences. The Faculty of Sciences oversees and guides the institution’s scientific research and academic endeavors. Numerous departments make up these faculties, so students can choose courses from a wide variety of disciplines that are directly applicable to their interests. Some of the schools that could be included on this list include the Schools of Civil Engineering, Mining Engineering, Electrical and Electronic Engineering, Architecture, Music, and Physical Sciences. The university offers programs at the undergraduate, graduate, and doctorate levels. In addition, it facilitates student exchange programs across institutions so that students can explore different educational opportunities.
