Adelaide, South Australia, Australia.

With its main campus located in the city centre, the university is one of three in South Australia. It is a member of the Group of Eight, which is Australia's attempt at an ivy league. The University is research focused rather than vocational. Like all tertiary institutions in Australia it is struggling with a decline in government funding. This is unlikely to stop because of the depressing lack of student radicals and left-wing student groups at the university, perhaps a by-product of Australia's wealthy middle class suburbia.

There is a stong focus on international student recruitment as a way of making money. The location couldn't be better as it is about 100 metres from Adelaide's main pub and cafe district on one side and runs down to the Torrens river on the other side. Being in the city centre has its downsides, though, particularly when it comes to finding a car park.
