Study Group announces new partnership with Flinders University
06 December 2012
The Study Group portfolio in Australia continues to go from strength to strength with the announcement of a new Study Group centre established in partnership with Flinders University. The partnership has launched the Flinders International Study Centre (FISC) to provide degree pathway programs for students who seek to study at the university.
Flinders University Vice-Chancellor, Prof. Michael Barber, spoke of this new venture as an opportunity for both the university and the city of Adelaide.
“At a competitive and challenging time for Australian providers in the global education market, FISC represents a strategic alliance for promoting Flinders University and the city of Adelaide as a destination of choice.”
Flinders University ranks amongst the best 400 universities in the world* and since being established in 1966, it has evolved to become a well-recognized, multi-disciplinary university which offers programmes in health sciences, science and engineering, humanities, law and business.
FISC is Study Group’s first commercial endeavor in South Australia, and the Centre commenced operation in late 2012. The first programs offers are a Diploma of Commerce which articulates to Year 2 of business and commerce degrees and an Introductory Academic Program for students who need to improve their academic language capabilities.
Warren Jacobson, Managing Director of Study Group Australasia talks of what Study Group brings to this partnership. “We pride ourselves both on the provision of high quality education and the personal pastoral care that is vital to the quality of our international students’ experience, and we are delighted to partner with Flinders University in this central purpose.”
