The University of South Australia (UniSA) was established in 1991 but
our foundations date back to the latter half of the 19th century. The
forerunners of today’s UniSA were the South Australian School of Art,
founded in 1856, the first of several Teacher Training Colleges formed in
1876, and the School of Mines and Industries which was established in
1889. These schools were renowned for providing quality education and
for responding to the needs of the nascent colony of South Australia.
