At the University of South Australia, we don't just create knowledge, we apply it so that our research can be translated into what will help shape tomorrow. 

We are a research leader, fostering an intellectually rigorous research environment, and delivering fundamental advances in knowledge. We fund research activities that encourage individual researchers and support research in identified areas of strength to address national needs.

We rank in the top one-third of Australian universities for research income and in the top ten Australian universities for the percentage of academics who hold doctoral qualifications. The second Excellence in Research for Australia assessment showed that 86 per cent of our assessed research is at or above world-class standard. In several areas our research is performing well above world-class levels, a significant achievement given our short history as a university. Read on and discover our research.
