Flinders University


The history of Flinders University's creation dates back to 1960 when 150 hectares of land in Bedford Park was allocated to the University of Adelaide for building a second campus. Planning started in 1961 and work began in 1962.

After winning the State election in 1965, the Australian Labor Party (ALP) decided to make the Bedford Park campus an independent university. On 1st July 1966, University Act was passed to officially create Flinders University named after Matthew Flinders, a celebrated British cartographer and navigator. Classes began on 7th March 1966 with just 400 students and 90 staff members. Sir Mark Mitchell was appointed as its first chancellor and Peter Karmel as its first vice-chancellor.

Flinders University has multiple campuses in Sothern Australia. The Bedford Park campus is the university's main campus situated at a distance of 12 km from the center of Adelaide. It offers numerous academic facilities like ample study spaces, a huge library, uninterrupted Wi-Fi connection, and computer labs. It also offers outstanding sports and fitness facilities like weights rooms, cardio rooms, well-equipped gyms, a cricket pitch and football, soccer, and baseball fields. Situated in the middle of Adelaide CBD, the university's Victoria Square campus is another outstanding space for students to study and grow.

The university houses over 26,000 students and more than 2,600 staff members. The institution holds the membership of Innovative Research Universities (IRU) and the International Network of Universities. It offers various study abroad and student exchange programs through its collaborations with international institutions across Asia, North America, and Europe including York University and Carleton University in Canada, Zhejiang University in China, University of Brighton, and the University of Keele in Great Britain and Universitat Paderborn in Germany.
