13 January 2021: The University of Canberra has proudly partnered with Keypath Education Australia, a global leader in online education, to roll out a range of postgraduate courses later this year.

The programs will be delivered in a flexible online format, allowing students to study one unit at a time and start their course in any one of six teaching periods throughout the year.

Vice-Chancellor of the University of Canberra, Professor Paddy Nixon signed the agreement with Keypath Education Australia on Tuesday. He said he was confident working with a market-led online program management company like Keypath Education Australia will see UC offer even more high-quality, relevant and job-ready postgraduate courses.

“Study needs to be flexible to fit in around the career of our workforce,” he said. “This partnership gives working professionals the opportunity to upskill solely online, working their education into their busy schedules.”

Keypath Education Australia partner with leading universities in Australia and globally, helping to design and deliver the most career-relevant online learning opportunities.

This partnership will see the two organisations collaborate in designing industry-aligned postgraduate courses and create the opportunity for a national audience to connect with the University.

Ryan O’Hare, CEO of Keypath Education Australia & Asia-Pacific, said he was pleased to see the partnership between two organisations with strongly aligned values.

“We are really excited to be partnering with the University of Canberra to launch these courses in the second half of 2021, knowing the University’s reputation for quality education,” Mr O’Hare said.

“As with all of our partnerships, we are looking forward to collaborating with the University to deliver high-quality learning experiences, providing working professionals access to in-demand skills aligned to their life-long learning journey.”

The courses are set to roll out in late 2021, with more information to be released closer to the date.
