Flinders has led the way in providing access to higher education for individuals who did not traditionally aspire to University, and offers a choice of pathways that cater to people from a variety of backgrounds.

Offering over 140 undergraduate and 280 postgraduate courses, Flinders prides itself on the quality of its programs and the attention given to the learning experience of its students.
