Settling into Adelaide

Enjoy your new home

Adelaide is welcoming and multicultural and makes an ideal home away from home. It has all the advantages of big city life yet is small enough to get around easily. The University offers a range of activities designed to help international students feel at home, including the G’Day Mates program. New international students can enjoy opportunities to practice English, learn about Aussie culture, make new friends, connect with the Adelaide business community and more. Register for our live session “Tour Adelaide’s best locations”, to hear from our special guests at StudyAdelaide who will take you on a virtual adventure to some of the city’s popular destinations.

Study Overseas

UniSA can take you even further

As a UniSA student, you can apply for a Student Exchange or Virtual International Experience. An exchange will allow you to study overseas at one of our partner institutions while staying enrolled at UniSA. Virtual international experiences are modelled off traditional Study Overseas program types, with the difference being that they are delivered virtually, and you take part in your own home, rather than overseas. Through these opportunities you can enhance your resume, connect with like-minded peers, gain credit towards your degree and develop new global networks.

Minimising barriers and maximising success

If you have a disability, mental health or chronic medical condition, or are the primary caregiver for someone who does, we encourage you to have a confidential chat with one of our Access and Inclusion Advisors about the free support and services that are available to our students. We can tailor an Access Plan to meet your individual circumstances and provide access to specialised services such as Auslan interpreting, transcriptions, assistive software, equipment, rest spaces and exam arrangements.
