Engagement and progress

Through our focus on personalised education, high-impact research and industry partnerships we work to create positive change in the lives of our students, our staff and those in the community. On a wider scale, through our education and research programs, we work with industry groups, local organisations and other universities to contribute to the nation’s economic and social objectives.

Building opportunities

We have long recognised the value of equal opportunity education to progress in society. We were among the first to develop clear pathways from vocational education to higher education and as an industry leader in online education, we are expanding the educational opportunities available to a new generation of learners.
