International study centre opens in 2013

indian-studentFlinders University has joined with private sector partner Study Group to set up The Flinders International Study Centre (FISC) as an initiative to attract international students to Adelaide.

FISC was launched by Flinders Vice-Chancellor Professor Michael Barber at Flinders University Victoria Square today (27 August).

FISC will provide Foundation and Diploma level programs for students who seek to qualify for, and enrol directly in, Flinders undergraduate courses.

“This will not only provide an additional community of international students living and studying on campus at Flinders, but an ongoing and sustainable pathway for recruiting students to Adelaide,” said Professor Dean Forbes, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (International and Communities).

“At a competitive and challenging time for Australian providers in the global education market, FISC represents a strategic alliance for promoting Flinders University and the city of Adelaide as a destination of choice.”

Study Group is one of the world’s largest private education providers, with a network of colleges in the US, UK, Australia and New Zealand.

“We pride ourselves both on the provision of high quality education and the personal pastoral care that is vital to the quality of our international students’ experience, and we are delighted to partner Flinders University in this central purpose,” said Mr Warren Jacobson, Managing Director of Study Group Australasia.

FISC is Study Group’s first commercial endeavour in South Australia, and the Centre is expected to commence its operations early in 2013.

  1. I think this topic is interesting, and has the potential to get more impact on other countries.
    Instead of Adelaide, international students from other countries tend to choose those big cities like Sydney or Melbourne.
    While in my opinion, Adelaide is a much better place for studying and living.
    And in the mean time, I didn’t see many international students here compare to other place like Hong Kong, Sydney or even Singapore.
    Which shows a capacity of accepting foreign students.

    Would like to learn more about this project.
    Cheers,
    Sean
