Why study in Adelaide?
Adelaide is one of the best-designed cities in the world, offering comfort and convenience that is rarely found in large cities. It is easy to navigate and easy to travel from one place to the other.
The Economist Intelligence Unit has rated Adelaide as one of the top 10 places in the world to live. The New Yorker Magazine has described the city as “possibly the last well-planned and contented metropolis on earth”. Lonely Planet has acclaimed Adelaide as “civilised and calm in a way that no other Australian state capital can match”.
Adelaide is an affordable, safe and friendly place in which to live, work and learn. It has a strong sense of heritage and traditional values, yet it also has a vibrant international and cosmopolitan character.
Adelaide is the “perfect host city” and is “ready to be uncorked”… so says Lonely Planet which named the South Australian capital as one of the top 10 must visit cities for 2014.
“A gateway to some of Australia’s most accessible wine country, Adelaide is effortlessly chic – and like a perfectly cellared red, it’s ready to be uncorked and sampled,” writes Lonely Planet.
The city centre is surrounded by parklands and is a blend of historic buildings, wide streets, parklands, cafes and restaurants. Adelaide is easy to get around with rolling hills to the east and beaches to the west.
With a population of slightly more than one million, Adelaide is the “20 minute city”. The airport is only seven kilometres from Adelaide city. The Adelaide Hills and major beaches are less than half an hour away by car. That’s what we call liveable!
