Why Study in Adelaide?

Adelaide, South Australia, is considered one of the world’s most liveable cities, and it has a long-standing tradition of world-class education. Adelaide has produced over 100 Rhodes Scholars, with two of those high achieving Scholars being past students of Loreto College. We are also proud to have one of our Old Scholars, and first in South Australia, to win the prestigious Schwarzman Scholarship, a competitive global master’s programme hosted in Beijing.

Adelaide is a safe and inclusive city, showcasing a vibrant calendar of events, festivals and cultural activities. Students can enjoy weekend trips to the beach, shopping districts, parks and open spaces, sporting events and local eateries which boasts a cosmopolitan cuisine which helps our International girls feel at home as well as explore other local tastes.

Loreto College is located only 5kms from Adelaide’s Central Business District, 25 minutes from Adelaide Airport and 30 minutes to Adelaide’s picturesque beaches. The College is located near main roads and is serviced by excellent public transport routes. Our College also has a designated Bus Service.
