Every year, more than 40,000 students from 130 countries choose to study, live and work in Adelaide.
Collectively, they are ambassadors for our state, influencing friends and family to visit and invest in South Australia and consume our products and services.
As well as helping to drive economic growth while they study, many are also interested in sharing their knowledge and skills by gaining post-study work experience once they graduate.
