Labor has promised to establish a University Merger Commission to consider bringing South Australia's top three universities together as one if it wins the 2022 state election.

Opposition Leader Peter Malinauskas said the future of the state's economy and its people depended on the success of its tertiary institutions, which were failing to make the world top 100 university rankings.

Mr Malinauskas said Labor would use the commission to "chart a path towards" amalgamating the University of Adelaide, Flinders University and the University of South Australia.

Malcolm Turnbull attacks Bill Shorten’ s credibility on corruption before Labor leader formally announces policy.

He stopped short of suggesting a Labor government would force a merger on the universities, but blamed Liberal Premier Steven Marshall's "lack of leadership" for the failure of past merger discussions.

"Our economic prosperity and the future of our state is dependent upon our higher education system," Mr Malinauskas said.

"We've got to make sure that our universities sector is performing at its absolute best.

"There should be a thorough examination of whether or not a university merger is able to help achieve that objective."

Labor Education spokesperson Susan Close said the state needed "a stronger institution and a growing institution".

"It's absolutely essential that South Australia go back into the top rankings of the universities if we are to attract researchers here, if we are to keep our best and brightest students here and if we are to get students … from interstate and overseas to choose South Australia."

Universities 'capable of discussing mergers themselves': Marshall

But Mr Marshall dismissed the policy announcement as "embarrassing".

"I think the universities in South Australia are more than capable of sitting down and discussing mergers themselves," Mr Marshall said.

"They've had merger discussions over a long period of time.

"I think it's is an embarrassing day for Peter Malinauskas this is his major job creation economic policy that he's announced since the last election."

The University of Adelaide and the University of South Australia (UniSA) had been in talks to merge over several months in 2018.

But the talks dramatically collapsed after separate meetings of the universities' councils on the same day.

The University of Adelaide's then-chancellor Kevin Scarce wrote to staff at the time, saying merging the two universities remained in the best interests of the state.

But UniSA vice-chancellor David Lloyd said in an email to staff that there was "not a compelling case" for a merger.

None of the universities commented on today's announcement.
