University of Adelaide to open Docklands campus

University of Adelaide to open Docklands campus Image

The University of Adelaide will open its Melbourne campus in Docklands in July in a partnership with the Kaplan Business School.

The campus will offer both undergraduate and postgraduate programs in fields such as IT, commerce, accounting and finance out of the Kaplan building on Docklands Drive.

The campus is expected to attract several hundred new students over the coming years and will initially be open to international students.

It’s the first time the 146-year-old university has opened a campus outside its home state.

Vice-Chancellor professor Peter Rathjen said the new Melbourne campus would open up the University of Adelaide’s world-class education to more students.

“Our new presence in Melbourne supports the University of Adelaide’s strategic direction to provide an innovative, 21st century education to a growing community of learners,” professor Rathjen said.

“While modest in size compared to our existing campuses, the new Melbourne campus will broaden the reach of a University of Adelaide education in areas in which we excel.”

“It will further position our university as a leader in modern learning and provide us with an entry point into the eastern states.”

The campus will also have the capacity to expand its offerings in the future. The academic programs will be designed by the university and taught by Kaplan academic staff.

Managing director of Kaplan Australia Rob Regan said Kaplan was excited to work with the university.

“Kaplan has operated a pathway college to the University of Adelaide since 2007 and became the preferred pathway provider in 2016,” he said.

“The new campus consolidates and extends the long-term partnership between our two educational institutions.”

Enrolment is now open for 11 degree programs at the Melbourne campus.
