Eynesbury has two campuses: the modern, purpose built Coglin Street campus mainly conducts English language, Diploma and Foundation Studies programs whereas the Franklin Street campus is for Eynesbury Senior High School education. The campuses offer wireless technology throughout, kitchen facilities, quiet study areas, student computers and break-out areas for studying or relaxing.
Both located in the centre of the City of Adelaide, which is one of Australia’s most affordable and safest cities, the Eynesbury campuses are within walking distance (or a free tram ride) to the University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia city campuses. Shopping, restaurants and entertainment are all easily accessible with the availability of a convenient and well-integrated public transport system. Buses and trams run for free within the Central Business District (CBD), and there are half price tickets for international students travelling outside of the city. International students in Adelaide also have access to Study Adelaide’s outstanding onshore student engagement program, which runs for free, and to many heavily discounted events.
To enhance student experience, Eynesbury arranges a broad range of activities both on and off campus, such as BBQ’s and bushwalking activities. Students can also join in a range of UniSA and the University of Adelaide sporting and social clubs, which helps students develop a network of friends and become more involved in the community.
