Study With Us

We are committed to producing graduates who are leaders and global citizens. Our degree programs are structured to develop work-ready graduates, who are highly skilled and capable professionals who will excel in their chosen field. To achieve this we create, produce, invest in and deliver course content coupled with hands on training that provide the skills, knowledge and understanding to enable our graduates to succeed.

Our continual review and improvement of courses and programs in collaboration with industry has enabled our programs to be recognised with the peak bodies in their specialist field. For example, our Bachelor of Commerce Accounting major is jointly accredited by CPA Australia and the Institute of Chartered Accountants in Australia, and our Bachelor of Business students who complete the Human Resource Management major are eligible to apply for membership of the Australian Human Resources Institute (AHRI).

Furthermore, our curriculum is international in focus and challenges our students to understand and question the global economy and society of which they are part. We expect our students to form views about the socio-legal-business institutions in Australia and the Asia-Pacific Region and to critically question the operation of those institutions.

By promoting student-centred learning, we encourage our students to be active collaborators, testing their ideas with both teachers and fellow students. Our courses and degree programs cater for our students' different learning styles, offering flexibility for both individual and group study.

Through the duration of their degree, our students construct a strong disciplinary knowledge and skills base, blended with generic skills and personal attributes. This enables them to confidently and successfully enter their profession and facilitates their commitment to making a difference to Australia and the world.

The Faculty provides student support and encourages student-led organisations. The variety of student clubs and societies offers a rich experience to students that complements their study, contributes to a vibrant on-campus life, enhances their attributes and builds a complete student experience.
