Public schools in South Australia deliver high quality primary and secondary education to children across the state.  Department of Education and Child Development involves parents and local communities in the education of children and students.

South Australia's private schools are not only excellent, they're excellent value, costing about 40% less than private schools in Sydney.

At the tertiary level, students have access to some of the finest institutions, offering qualifications that are accepted and respected all over the world.  Adelaide University, University of South Australia and Flinders University are ranked among, Australia's best, each offering strengths in specific fields.

Adelaide is becoming a city of choice for overseas educational institutions looking to establish themselves in Australia or the Pacific Rim. The prestigious American university, Carnegie Mellon became the first university to offer American degrees in Australia when it opened its Adelaide campus in 2006.   The United Kingdom’s University College of London opened its Adelaide campus in 2010.
