6 >AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION 2012 AUSTRALIAN EDUCATION >ACADEMIES AUSTRALASIA An example is the Travel and Tourism programme in Sydney. At the George Street campus there is a fully licensed travel agency where Travel & Tourism students obtain real-time experience in ticketing and travel arrangements. Of course, this also means that Academies Australasia students are eligible for special rates! ARTICULATION AND ADVANCED STANDING Academies Australasia colleges have arrangements with leading higher education institutions in Australia and overseas. Course credits enable students to save both time and money. Academies Australasia graduates have successfully completed degrees and other programmes at institutions such as Blue Mountains International Hotel Management School, Charles Sturt University, Curtin University, Griffith University, Macquarie University, Sydney University, University of Ballarat, University of New South Wales, University of Technology Sydney and Le Cordon Bleu. DARING TO BE FIRST While conscious of the lessons of history, and carefully prudent, the Academies Australasia team does not sit back for others to lead. Academies Australasia has broken new ground in a number of areas. For example, it was the first education group in Australia to recognise PTE Academic. REALLY KNOWING ‘INTERNATIONAL’ AND OFFERING MORE THAN JUST AUSTRALIA Over the years, Academies Australasia colleges have taught tens of thousands of students from 105 countries. Many members of faculty and staff, predominantly Australian, were born overseas, coming from 20 countries. They speak several languages. The marketing team is comprised mainly of people from overseas who first came to Australia to study. This background and sensitivity to cultural differences, needs and expectations, make them very well placed to understand and assist students from overseas. They know the issues and how best to address them. And they care. Regular international travel and participation in organisations set up to promote a better understanding of international developments and trends, strengthens Academies Australasia’s position in the international education sector. At any one time, students are from more than 65 countries. This wide international mix gives them exposure to different nationalities and cultures. Apart from learning about and enjoying living in Australia, they have the opportunity to learn about many other countries. ACADEMIES AUSTRALASIA GRADUATES After graduating, Academies Australasia students have found success in a wide range of professions and businesses. While most Academies Australasia students return home, many have fallen in love in Australia – with their partners or the country – and applied for permanent residence. Many have become citizens. ● >FIND OUT MORE Group Head Office (Sydney) Level 6, 505 George Street, Sydney, NSW 2000, Australia Tel: +61 2 9224 5500 Fax: +61 2 9224 5550 web : www.academies.edu.au Benchmark College (Penrith) Level 2, 148 Henry Street Penrith, NSW 2750 Tel: +61 1800 286 916 Fax: +61 4722 3599 Web : www.benchmark.edu.au AMI Education (Melbourne) Level 4, 303 Collins Street Melbourne, VIC 3000, Australia Tel: +61 3 8610 4100 Fax: +61 3 8610 4199 Web : www.ami.vic.edu.au Academies Australasia College (Singapore) 51 Middle Road Singapore 188959 Tel: +65 6337 9949 Fax: +65 6336 5955 Web : www.aca .edu.sg
