Navitas renews partnership with Deakin University

Global education provider Navitas has announced a renewal of its agreement with Deakin University, Australia, to provide pathway programmes for international students until 2027.

The Navitas partnership with Deakin University dates back to 1996 and has transitioned more than 19,000 students onto higher education programmes, Navitas said.


"I am very pleased to be extending our partnership with Deakin University as we enter our third decade of working together to support more students to succeed at the university," said Rod Jones, Group CEO of Navitas.


"A lot of things have changed over that time, but our joint commitment to academic outcomes and student experience has remained steadfast and delivered significant value to students, the university and Navitas."


The Deakin College, operated by Navitas, offers a range of courses in commerce, computing, engineering, health sciences, management, media and communications, and science to international and domestic students who can then qualify for the second year of undergraduate degrees.


Jane den Hollander, Vice-Chancellor of Deakin University, said, "For 20 years the partnership with Navitas has been very important for Deakin University, and it remains so as we move to the next stage of our relationship. The Deakin College pathway and quality of the student experience Deakin College continues to deliver is highly valued by both international and domestic students."


Navitas recently released full-year results for the 2017 financial year, showing a five per cent decrease in group revenue. However, the group said that pathway enrolments in its Australia and New Zealand section increased by 16 per cent compared with the previous year.
