From a well-equipped infrastructure setting to a highly supportive environment provided by academic staff and researchers, University of Adelaide is well deserved the title of “The Best University in South Australia.” Despite the fact that the university is located in the “City of Churches” where its tranquility and peacefulness perfectly match with the outstanding quality of education Adelaide Uni delivers, I am able to enjoy high standard teachings and world-class facilities without paying an exorbitant fee. Effective support system, vibrant student life, perfect study environment coupled with affordable cost of living, it is definitely the best “stepping stone” of becoming a knowledgeable, innovative and competitive graduate in the society! show less
