Life in Adelaide

Named as Australia's most liveable city, and the 3rd most liveable city in the world, there's so much to love about Adelaide!

As the capital city of South Australia, Adelaide offers big city living on a smaller scale. With a population of about 1.3 million people, Adelaide offers students a safe, clean and welcoming environment where they can thrive.


Adelaide is a friendly and multicultural city, offering a real sense of community as well as a wide range of attractions and entertainment.

Residents lead a relaxed but vibrant lifestyle in a city known for its pristine beaches, yearly calendar of festivals, and proximity to the great Australian Outback. 

Adelaide enjoys a Mediterranean climate, meaning hot, dry summers (average temperature between 17°C - 29°C) and cold, wet winters (average temperature between 7.5°C - 16°C).

Study Environment

Our picturesque North Terrace campus is located in the heart of the city, backing onto the Torrens River and parklands. 

Offering a safe, clean and central location, students can move around the city with confidence, able to access a whole range of shops, restaurants, attractions and public transport options with ease.

Plus, as the country's most affordable city, students can lower their cost of living by up to 14% (compared to other major Australian cities).
