About Flinders University and Scholarship
Apart from its main campus in Adelaide, South Australia, public research institution Flinders University has 11 locations spread out throughout that state and the Northern Territory. It was established in 1966 and was given the name Matthew Flinders in honor of the British sailor who, in the early 19th century, explored and mapped the coastlines of Australia and South Australia.
The main campus of Flinders University is found in Bedford Park, in the southern part of Adelaide, and is encompassed by 156 acres of native bushland and gardens. Other campuses include those at Tonsley, the Adelaide CBD, Renmark, Alice Springs, and Darwin. The Innovative Research Universities (IRU) Group includes it as a member. According to the 2021 Graduate Outcome Survey – Longitudinal, published by the Australian Government’s Quality Indicators for Learning and Teaching, Flinders University rated first in the country for postgraduate employment outcomes. The 2022 Times Higher Education rankings place Flinders University at 266 among the top 300 universities worldwide.
The College of Science and Engineering (CSE) of Flinders University will award undergraduate students with Summer Research Awards during the summers of 2023 and 2024. The opportunity to take part in a research project under the supervision of a staff member will be provided to students who are awarded these funds, providing them an inside look at the research procedure. As part of the grant, the student will gain considerable practical experience in the planning, carrying out, and analyzing of research in their field.
