In 2016, Flinders University in South Australia will celebrate its 50th anniversary. The University continues to evoke the pioneering spirit of its namesake, Captain Matthew Flinders RN, and enjoys a well-justified reputation for excellence in teaching and research. The University has a long-standing commitment to enhancing educational opportunities for all and a proud record of community engagement. Since its establishment in 1966, the University has attracted students from over 100 countries with alumni building careers and lives that are enriching communities across Australia and throughout the world. Please visit the University here (http://www.flinders.edu.au/international-students/ ) and explore where a qualification from Flinders University could take you.
Proceeds from the sale of limited edition maquettes beyond the amount required to fund the Matthew Flinders Memorial Statue will be given to Flinders University to create a ‘Matthew Flinders Scholarship’ to further develop educational links between South Australia and the UK. Further details will become available in the lead up to 2016.
