FLINDERS Univer­sity has been ranked among the Top 2% of uni­ver­si­ties world­wide.

It en­joys a rep­u­ta­tion for ex­cel­lence in teach­ing and re­search, and is ranked No.1 in Aus­tralia for in­ter­na­tional stu­dent sup­port.

Es­tab­lished in 1966, Flinders is mod­ern, pro­gres­sive, dy­namic, wel­com­ing and ac­ces­si­ble.

It main­tains strong ties to in­dus­tries and its stu­dents gain valu­able work ex­pe­ri­ence while they learn.

To pre­pare grad­u­ates for 21st cen­tury jobs, Flinders’ un­der­grad­u­ate and post­grad­u­ate busi­ness and com­merce de­grees train stu­dents to adapt and thrive in the fu­ture, thanks to its in­ter­na­tion­ally busi­ness-ex­pe­ri­enced staff.

Flinders Busi­ness of­fers op­por­tu­ni­ties for in­dus­try projects with real clients, work place­ments in pres­ti­gious firms, and prac­ti­cal op­por­tu­ni­ties to de­velop net­works with pro­fes­sion­als and alumni.

Its mis­sion is to pro­duce stu­dents with skills and knowl­edge that spans mul­ti­ple ca­reer op­tions.

This is achieved though part­ner­ships with the New Ven­ture In­sti­tute, Fox Busi­ness School in the United States and over 100 in­dus­try part­ners and or­gan­i­sa­tions.

De­grees are of­fered in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with the in­dus­try, giv­ing stu­dents spe­cial­ist knowl­edge and an in­te­grated “tool­kit” of skills that meet the re­quire­ments of a chang­ing in­dus­try.

Stu­dents can take part in the na­tion­ally recog­nised 20-week in­dus­try place­ment pro­gramme to gain real-world ex­pe­ri­ence and be work-ready upon grad­u­a­tion.

Flinders of­fer pro­fes­sion­ally ac­cred­ited de­grees by bod­ies such as En­gi­neers Aus­tralia and the Aus­tralian Com­puter So­ci­ety in a di­verse range of en­gi­neer­ing dis­ci­plines, in­clud­ing Biomedicine, Civil, Com­puter and Net­work Sys­tems, Elec­tri­cal, Elec­tron­ics, Me­chan­i­cal, Mar­itime, Ro­bot­ics and Soft­ware.

This di­ver­sity of dis­ci­pline al­lows stu­dents in­creased flex­i­bil­ity in trans­fer­ring within most en­gi­neer­ing de­grees.

Stu­dents will learn from world­class aca­demics within a stim­u­lat­ing learn­ing en­vi­ron­ment.

Its Ton­s­ley cam­pus is a A$120mil (RM406mil) hub of in­no­va­tion and en­trepreneur­ship and em­bod­ies the world’s best prac­tice in ed­u­ca­tion, teach­ing and re­search.

Here is a place where in­no­va­tion, col­lab­o­ra­tion and en­trepreneurial spirit com­bine to cre­ate the prod­ucts and pro­cesses of the 21st cen­tury and be­yond.

The un­der­ly­ing ethos in Flinders is a stu­dent-cen­tred ex­pe­ri­ence: stu­dents learn within cut­ting-edge fa­cil­i­ties pur­pose-built for their study needs and re­ceive all the ex­tra sup­port they need to ac­cli­ma­tise to the new en­vi­ron­ment.

Flinders is No.1 in Aus­tralia for stu­dent sup­port and third in Aus­tralia for ar­rival sup­port ser­vices (In­ter­na­tional Stu­dent Barom­e­ter, 2016). It ap­proaches stu­dent ser­vices the same way it ap­proaches aca­demic and re­search ac­tiv­i­ties, by be­ing com­mit­ted to ex­cel­lence.

Even be­fore a stu­dent leaves his home coun­try, Flinders would have as­sisted in ar­rival plans and con­nected him to on-cam­pus sup­port ser­vices and staff in spe­cific aca­demic ar­eas.

The Flinders cam­pus is 20 min­utes from Ade­laide and comes with views of the coast and sub­urbs.
