When you are at the Bedford Park campus, you will feel like you are in an Arcadia! I love living in Adelaide, people are so friendly – here is the only place I found where people say thank you to the bus driver when they get off. Flinders University has a great environment, not only for study but for life – international students always receive lots of support.
Cindy Hu, Bachelor Education (Secondary) / Bachelor Arts (Mathematics and Chinese)
I decided to choose this path as I love and adore children. I have always been interested in how they learn and develop across their lifespan. The Bedford Park campus has a lot of greenery, especially where the Education building is located on the hill. It makes me happy being close to nature, surrounded by trees, a lake, birds, ducks, and a clear, blue sky.
