Whyalla campus

Renowned as the place ‘where the outback meets the sea’, Whyalla is South Australia’s third most populous city, and home to the State’s largest regional university campus.

Whyalla campus is situated on a 22-hectare site in the heart of Whyalla’s education and cultural precinct, and offers a stimulating and supportive setting for teaching, learning and research.

The smaller campus lends itself to more personalised classes and closer interaction between students and staff. The campus boasts excellent teaching, student services, research and accommodation facilities, and a lively café. Students can also benefit from rapid access to the resources located at other UniSA campuses via the library and wireless internet.

Whyalla campus has developed programs and expertise that reflect rural and regional Australia. The campus provides expertise in the fields of nursing, social work, early childhood and primary teaching, engineering and community wellbeing as well as offering a pathway to tertiary learning through its Foundation Studies program.

While the majority of students come from the western and northern regions of the State, an increasing number of interstate and overseas students are discovering the benefits of studying in Whyalla.

A more relaxed pace, and access to extra-curricular activities such as sports, boating, fishing and shopping, are among the advantages of studying in Whyalla.
