About Adelaide

Adelaide is South Australia’s vibrant capital city and its economic, educational and cultural hub. The city is consistently voted one of the world’s liveable because there is so much to do and enjoy.

Adelaide is the world’s third most liveable city, with a vibrant atmosphere and natural beauty on its doorstep. There is so much to experience beyond the classroom, from local fresh food markets, international sporting events and world renowned arts festivals. The layout of the city means you spend less time commuting and more time enjoying life. And with a lower cost of living than other capital cities in Australia, you have more money to enjoy it too.

With so many beautiful parks, green spaces, and quiet suburbs, walking and cycling are easy and safe ways to get around. Naturally, you will enjoy free Wi-Fi in the CBD, and with the city famous for its cafes and restaurants, why not study while enjoying this free service? The city is sandwiched between white sandy beaches to the west and hills 20 minutes to the east. Beaches offer calm, safe swimming waters, while the hills are a great place to discover a couple of South Australia’s attractions in a beautiful tree-studded landscape. Further afield are other wine-growing regions such as the famous Barossa Valley and farmlands. Between the hills and beaches are many other places loved by students and locals alike. Adelaide is one of Australia’s most affordable cities, so your student dollar will go a lot further during a day of shopping in the heart of the city at Rundle Mall or undercover at the Adelaide Central Market. https://studyadelaide.com/why-adelaide/life-in-adelaide
