UCL Australia was established in Adelaide in 2010 as UCL’s first overseas campus.
As the only UK university with a presence in Australia, UCL’s purpose was to bring a global and unique approach to postgraduate education in the energy and resources sectors.
As a result of our strong links with industry, our students were able to draw on the knowledge of industry practitioners who contributed to their classes achieving our aim of graduating tomorrow’s leaders in the energy and resources sectors.
In 2015 The Faculty of Engineering Sciences (FES) and the University of South Australia (UniSA) signed an agreement committing the two institutions to work together to develop teaching and research in South Australia in fields that include minerals processing, advanced manufacturing, sustainable future energy production and protection, and care of the environment. The agreement, signed at joint events in Adelaide and London, signaled a program of future collaboration between UniSA’s Future Industries Institute (FII) and the FES.
The partnership emphasised UCL’s ongoing commitment to sustaining its engagement with South Australia in a different format.
