Uni Adelaide to expand into Melbourne

Partner Kaplan will teach its degrees in Docklands

The university is targeting international students who are happy to study for its qualifications but like to live in Melbourne.

Kaplan staff will teach Uni Adelaide UG and PG degrees at the company’s Dockland’s site from July. University staff will “collaborate” on quality assurance and assessment.

Kaplan has operated a pathway college for Uni Adelaide since 2007.

The university names IT, commerce, accounting, and finance as initial offerings, with capacity for future courses in areas of “specialist knowledge,” including wine and AI.

DVC A Pascale Quester says the university, “is working to attract new students who otherwise might not have been able to study with us.”

“Initially open” to international students, the campus “is expected to attract several hundred new students over the coming years.”

The university’s out-of-Adelaide expansion follows the launch last August of an SA government strategy to attract more international students to the state’s universities, in the state.
