The right start to your studies in Australia is now more innovative than ever. Travel restrictions and social distancing can’t and won’t stop Taylors College from offering an unrivalled pathway to the University of Sydney and a rewarding life in Australia.
Now, as before, it remains the best option for students who long for a study abroad experience of a lifetime. Ask students their highlights and you’ll hear something new from each. Youyi from China found it had “a reasonable timetable and kind teachers.” Phyu Sin from Myanmar appreciated accessible resources, such as the study guides that could be printed out a day or two before each class. For Quynh Phuong Pham from Vietnam, it was the program’s “straight-forward” and “easy to understand” nature. “I like how teachers stated their expectations from the beginning so there are no surprises,” Quynh Phuong shares.
Last year, these students were surveyed after completing their course fully or partially online, after having to return home for health and safety purposes. They are among the 80% that were more than satisfied with the experience.
Judy from Hong Kong will tell you that choosing Taylors was one of the “best decisions” she’s made in her life. She was immediately sold by the idea of fast-tracking an education at the University of Sydney, an institution that has consistently ranked among the world’s top 40. Furthermore, she got to experience the best of many worlds — with a bustling city, golden beaches, and the rest of Sydney’s natural wonders all just a stone’s throw away.
Taylors College knows that not everyone will be able to come and enjoy these splendours just yet, which is why they’ve innovated several ways to deliver it to students abroad instead.
For example, in Shanghai, China, Taylors College opened a flagship remote learning centre at the Xuhui campus of the Shanghai Institute of Technology. Students of the University of Sydney Foundation Program are able to study on campus and receive live lectures and tutorials via the virtual classroom with teachers in Sydney. At the same time, they get to take full advantage of the university’s academic and leisure facilities. They will also live on campus in specially designed dormitories.
“Students who are taking online courses in China are eager for more opportunities for interaction,” said Alex Chevrolle, Managing Director of Study Group Australia & New Zealand. “Our online teaching allows students to experience and participate in the content of the course, and the new learning centre we established in Shanghai means that students can communicate face-to-face, and jointly complete coursework and extracurricular activities”.
In Hong Kong, Taylors has an offering just as dynamic. Students in the island nation awaiting their return to Australia are benefiting from a new collaboration with WeWork that takes their remote learning experience up a notch. The partnership provides enrolled students with free access to flexible hot desk workspaces at YF Life Tower in the heart of Hong Kong island.
At WeWork, they are thriving in diverse spaces that exude a campus-like feel. They have 24/7 access to WeWork, where they can collaborate with other students, attend virtual classes, or study on their own in serenity. Of course, high speed WI-FI; printers; quality audio and visual equipment; stationery supplies; and complimentary refreshments all come with the package.
Accessible, affordable, open to all
Here’s more good news for all those interested in making this education theirs. Taylors College is offering eligible students a contribution of 20% of their tuition fee for the duration of their course. The best part? It’s hassle-free. The Taylors College Sydney Award will be automatically applied to eligible international students and reflected in their letter of offer.
