Navitas signs a joint agreement with the University of Western Sydney (UWS).
Navitas is delighted to announce that an agreement has been signed with the University of Western Sydney to open a 6th University of Western Sydney College on the University’s campus in the Parramatta CBD.The international pathway college will be located at 100 George Street, Parramatta, Western Sydney and will welcome its first students in October 2015. In the initial interim phase, Navitas and UWS college will work together to offer students a place in the new location under the UWS College CRICOS codes. Over the coming months, we will move to establish the new UWS International College (UWSIC) as an institution in its own right.
Initial programs offered at the new Parramatta College will be:
University Foundation Studies
Business and Commerce
Health Sciences and Nursing
Business and Commerce
Information and Communications Technology
Students who successfully complete the UWSIC program will be eligible to continue their studies in degree courses at UWS.
The University of Western Sydney currently has six campuses around the Sydney metropolitan area: Bankstown, Blacktown, Campbelltown, Hawkesbury, Parramatta, and Penrith and in 2014, celebrated its 25th anniversary.
“We are very pleased to be investing in this college with UWS and to continue to offer international students a wide range of location, partners and programs.” said Mr Rod Jones, CEO Navitas.
UWS Vice-Chancellor, Professor Barney Glover, said UWS International College will be a milestone in the University’s history. He added the exciting new initiative cements the University’s reputation as a national leader when it comes to providing pathways to quality higher education.
“It also connects our international students with the vibrant growth centre of Parramatta, providing all the benefits of a CBD location – transport, social and cultural amenities, and access to other important infrastructure. In 2017 UWS will also open a new high-rise campus in the heart of Parramatta,” Professor Glover said.
In the coming weeks, Navitas staff members will commence training sessions and seminars in your region and will be contacting you to arrange a meeting to provide you with the details of this new arrangement. We very much look forward to working with you, our valued partners on promoting this fantastic new pathway college and university partner.
