Asia Pacific partnerships
We will forge mutually beneficial partnerships in the Asia Pacific Region to support collaborations, international student recruitment, transnational education programs, staff and student exchange, and both outbound and inbound student mobility. These partnerships will enhance the University's research strengths, expand access to international research funding schemes, increase impact and entrepreneurship opportunities, and build reputation.
We will establish joint institutes with partner institutions in the Asia Pacific Region to address complex global issues and to drive the activities of our partnerships.
Globally engaged education
We will embrace a global focus in all learning, ensuring curriculum and programs are internationally relevant, attractive and flexible, and contribute to making our graduates life-ready.
Empowered and connected
We will strengthen connections with alumni, recognising the significance of their lifelong relationship with the University. We will take opportunities to use our outstanding alumni and staff to assist with student recruitment, marketing, industry introductions and engagement, government liaison in offshore locations, running lectures, mentoring start-ups, student outbound and inbound mobility and Work Integrated Learning opportunities.
