UNIVERSITY COLLEGE London (UCL) has announced ambitious plans to launch a campus in South Australia.

UCL, one of the UK’s oldest universities, has confirmed that it is in discussions with South Australia to explore the possibility of launching a branch campus in Adelaide.

The Adelaide campus would initially deliver a UCL Master of Laws (LLM) program focused on environmental and energy subjects. It would offer a suite of core courses, including international environmental law, international energy law, EU environmental law and environmental law and policy.

The parties have signed a term sheet and hope the new campus will be up and running by mid-2008.

In a recent visit, UCL’s vice-provost (academic and international), Professor Michael Worton, said there are a number of potential areas of collaboration with universities, government and the business community in the state. “The next stage is for market research to be conducted as part of a detailed feasibility study. It is early days, but the signs are most positive,” he said.

South Australia Premier Mike Rann said he was delighted in the interest from the prestigious university. “I am delighted that UCL sees the strength of the state’s vision to become a leading global education city and that it has ambitions to join Carnegie Mellon in Adelaide as Adelaide’s next foreign university. This year [UCL] has 19,300 students enrolled across 70 departments in eight faculties.”

The UCL and SA Government have agreed the Adelaide campus would become recognised as a leading educational provider in Australia and the Asia-Pacific region. The UCL said the standard of education would be equal to that already offered by UCL in the UK.
