Welcome to the Confucius Institute
The Confucius Institute at the University of Adelaide promotes the learning of Chinese language and culture and a broader and more informed understanding of China.
Officially launched in March 2007 by the then Federal Minister for Foreign Affairs the Hon. Alexander Downer, 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 is a proud participant and supporting partner of Adelaide Festival Centre's 2014 OzAsia Festival.
For a list of programs and events we shall host and/or participate in please see our OzAsia Programs and Events page.
