"Once again South Australia punches above its weight," said CEO Penny Griggs, "We are incredibly proud to be acknowledged for offering the best quality undergraduate education experience out of 100 other Australian institutions.
"As a single focused independent art school these outstanding results reflect our commitment to a studio-based teaching model and small class sizes. And we've only been offering our degree program since 1998. We really appreciate this wonderful endorsement from our student community."
Established in 1982, Adelaide Central School of Art is an independent, not-for-profit, tertiary provider of visual arts education and a member of the Independent Higher Education Australia (IHEA).
