Recommended Posts

For over 50 years, Flinders has been a center of inspiring achievement: from our pioneering research and excellence in teaching to the positive impact we have in the communities we serve. Inspiration leads to innovation. But innovation is more than just a buzzword at Flinders. As we enter an era of disruptive change and remarkable technological innovation, Flinders is well prepared for this unpredictable, exciting future. Our strong network of external links keeps our work dynamic, enabling us to connect across barriers to create enterprising solutions for the future, to make a difference by changing lives and, ultimately, the world.

Our fifty years of teaching and learning alone did not put us in world universities' top echelons. Nor have our state-of-the-art facilities and teaching footprint that extends from South Australia, Western Victoria to the Northern Territory. What got 90% of our research rated world-class or above was commitment*. An unshakable, unbreakable commitment to Making A Difference.

Not just to our students but a more extensive world through Flinders graduates breaking new ground in all corners of the globe, with students engaged in research in everything from medicine to manufacturing, through leadership and linkages with the wider commercial world. We Go Beyond the norms, the naysayers, and the barriers. That is what Making A Difference is all about.

Our vision is to be internationally recognized as a world leader in research, an innovator in contemporary education, and the source of Australia's most enterprising graduates. Changing lives and changing the world. Our underlying ethos of being student-centered is a distinguishing feature of the Flinders' experience. It is the measure by which we judge the impact of innovation in teaching and student support.

Innovative courses will be led by inspirational teachers, supported by advanced learning technologies, to create a learning experience that is flexible, richly interactive, and highly personalized. Our teaching will embed in every degree program research opportunities that nurture the creativity and critical thinking skills that will be determinants of success in an information-rich world. Our clear focus on student success will distinguish Flinders and empower students to achieve to the very best of their abilities, irrespective of their background or individual circumstances.

The Flinders Experience will provide work-integrated learning opportunities and a thriving international mobility program that will enhance personal enterprise and intercultural skills development, enriching the educational experience. Flinders graduates will be equipped to make a difference in the world as respectful and ethical global citizens. Our student's and alumni's achievements will be the measure by which our success as a world-class education provider will be judged.
