About us

International partners

The Northern Sydney Institute is globally connected with education providers as well as other education-related service providers through a range of partnerships. These partnerships provide mutually beneficial opportunities for students and staff to gain a more internationalised experience and to enhance collaborative activities.

Our international partners:

  • offshore program delivery partners
  • international student recruitment partners
  • study abroad partners.

Offshore program delivery partners

Offshore programs combine the latest in delivery technologies and the proven track-record in vocational education of our partners. Approximately 1,500 students are studying in our programs offered in collaboration with partner institutions in the People’s Republic of China. Training is provided to advanced diploma level in accounting, management, marketing, logistics, and tourism. Short-term programs are offered including customised training to meet the needs of overseas clients and delivered in-country. Our courses delivered offshore are taught in English with an equivalent course structure to local students in Sydney. Students who successfully complete a program gain the same nationally recognised qualification as their fellow Australian students. Offshore students undertake industry training and develop skills required to be work ready graduates.

International student recruitment partners

The Northern Sydney Institute works in partnership with TAFE NSW approved international student recruitment agents located across many countries.

Our partners provide academic counselling to assist students in choosing the right course to meet their career aspirations and to offer guidance on selecting a campus and visa requirements.

Many of our agents have offices located in Sydney to assist students with educational matters during their study in Australia.

Study abroad partners

Study abroad partnerships are designed to allow international students to study at the Northern Sydney Institute through pre-arranged articulations. The Northern Sydney Institute welcomes fee-paying study-abroad students from overseas partner institutions.

Study abroad is offered by registered training providers across Asia, Europe and Latin America. As part of a study abroad program, overseas students undertake a part of their main course of study at the Northern Sydney Institute.

At the end of their course of study the student achieves two qualifications - one from the Northern Sydney Institute and the other in the student’s home country. The dual qualification gives the student a competitive edge when seeking employment opportunities.
