It is due to the standing of the department of Hebrew Biblical and Jewish Studies in the field of Semitic studies in general and Mandaean studies in particular, that is was deemed appropriate to host the International conference on Mandaean Studies in Sydney. The University awarded the first PhD thesis in Mandaean studies in australia in 2005.
