Paving a road to the future


Goal: Every member of the community can equally participate in learning opportunities.

Primary Target: Non-school qualifications

The newly established UniSA College assists South Australians to get into university.

By offering programs that prepare students for university, such as foundation studies and diploma programs, and developing pathways that connect schools and the community to the university, the college aims to raise students’ aspirations for further education. In this way, the initiative helps ensure that the community can equally participate in tertiary education.

The college also develops the skills needed to support the growth of industry in the northern regions of the state.

An initiative of the University of South Australia, the UniSA College and its component programs are supported by numerous partners including local councils, the state government, schools, sporting and community organisations.

UniSA College is an exciting initiative that works towards achieving a large number of targets in South Australia’s Strategic Plan, including: increasing the proportion of the population with non-school qualifications, increasing the number of young people learning or earning and reducing economic disadvantage.

The Centre was established to coordinate the University’s aim of increasing opportunities for participation in education and lifelong learning. In conjunction with schools, other education providers, government, industry and the broader community, the Centre will build on existing Uni SA initiatives and achievements, and develop new strategies to enhance educational opportunities and facilitate connectivity with the community.
