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 marks the 10th year anniversary of the establishment of the Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide. Our 10th year anniversary will be celebrated throughout the year with many exciting events and activities.

For more information, please visit our events page.

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 promotes the learning of Chinese language and culture, a broader and more informed understanding of China, both across South Australia and beyond.

We seek to build understanding of Chinese culture among any interested groups, increase China-knowledge generally, strengthen language teaching and help Australians to build or strengthen their economic and business links with China.
