Iíve worked for UniSA since 1989. My background is in nursing Ė I used to work as a nurse educator at the Royal Adelaide Hospital. After upgrading my skills, I wanted to be part of an innovative teaching environment outside of a hospital setting. This was one of the main attractions to joining UniSA Ė it offered exposure to different ways of learning in a more stimulating way. More >

After working as a police musician for 13 years I moved to Western Australia to teach at the Academy of Performing Arts. UniSAís Arts Management program is the oldest and most prestigious in Australia; and with the Adelaide Fringe Festival and a range of other international events in the city, my decision to join was made easy for me.

Dr Stephen Boyle, Academic Director, UniSA College with UniSA since 2000



I moved from the University of Melbourne to UniSA two years ago, attracted to its research focussed culture. Iím really passionate about research, but at other universities I had to teach administration as well. UniSA has capitalised on my strengths to achieve its initiatives, while allowing me to pursue my passion.  More >

UniSA cares about its people. In my work area, HRís wellness initiative supplies fresh fruit and runs various health related seminars, as well as offering free massage every fortnight. I play basketball on a Friday afternoon, but you can take your pick from badminton, circuit training, even karate! UniSA doesnít just recognise the importance of learning, but the importance of a fit and healthy lifestyle.  More >

It was the broadness of the role at UniSA that really appealed to me; I realised it was much more than just a finance role. The people I spoke to were all really interesting and there seemed to plenty of opportunity and challenge.  More >

While working as a researcher in the UK, I attended a conference in Tuscany. It was here I met John Ralston, one of the big names in the research industry and a UniSA employee. When I heard about the research he was involved in with UniSA I didnít think twice about making the move to Australia to work alongside him. More >
