Medibank and Swinburne came together in 2017 to develop integrated health services, teaching collaborations and industry engagement activities. Find out more about what the partnerships involves, what they have achieved so far, and what lies ahead.
Community engagements and achievements
In 2019, Medibank ran stalls and activations for students during O-Week and Mental Health Week, including the popular Stephanie Alexander Kitchen Foundation Planting Demonstrations.
Medibank also sponsors the Swinburne Cycling Club.
The partnership has seen Swinburne students participating in Professional Placements and Professional Internships at Medibank. These have provided valuable industry experience to the students and fresh insights and perspective for the business. Some students stayed on in full-time roles.
Swinburne is currently delivering education programs to Medibank employees on leadership, management and customer service.
Both Swinburne and Medibank are focused on the health and wellbeing of students and the wider community. Under the partnership, Swinburne staff, students and alumni have access to benefits and discounts across Medibank’s insurance range, including health, pet and travel insurance.
Medibank is also the preferred provider of Overseas Health Cover to international students at Swinburne.
“We can share our experiences as a business with health at its core, while having access to the diversity of thought and enthusiasm that AGSE [Australian Graduate School of Entrepreneurship] students bring.”
