The University of South Australia (UniSA) was established in 1991 but our foundations date back to the latter half of the 19th century. The forerunners of today’s UniSA were the South Australian School of Art, founded in 1856, the first of several Teacher Training Colleges formed in 1876, and the School of Mines and Industries which was established in 1889.
We offer degree programs across a wide range of subjects including business, law, education, arts and social sciences, health sciences, information technology, engineering and the environment.
The library plays a significant role in supporting the university’s teaching, learning and research mission.
UniSA operates a number of clinics that are open to the general public, providing professional and cost-effective services (in some cases free) in the areas of health, law, marketing, and psychology.
Services are delivered by students supervised by highly qualified and experienced health professionals. We also offer services led by qualified and registered professionals.
