About Us

Statue of Confucius

The Confucius Institute was officially launched in March 2007 by the then Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs the Hon. Alexander Downer.

2017 marked the 10th year anniversary of the establishment of the Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide.

The establishment of the Confucius Institute with Shandong University consolidates longstanding ties with the University of Adelaide and coincides with the twentieth anniversary of the Sister State relationship between South Australia and Shandong Province.

The Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide aims to assist the learning of Chinese language and culture, and create broader and more informed understanding of China across South Australia.

We seek to build an understanding of Chinese culture among interested groups, increase China-knowledge generally, strengthen language teaching and help Australians to build and strengthen their relationship with China.
