Top Tips When Starting A Joint Program with Overseas Universities
Starting a joint program with overseas universities is truly exciting. However, it also involves a tremendous amount of work and collaboration. In today’s TIPS, Priscila Trevisan of Swinburne University gives some advice on joint overseas programs.
You can lay the groundwork for your joint program with overseas universities by getting the academics involved. Make sure that you are connected and updated on all there is to know from the academics. This ensures better and more efficient results.
You will also need to work very closely with your partner universities. This is essential for good outcomes and win-wins. A mutually beneficial relationship can turn into a sustainable enterprise with enough time and attention shared between the parties involved. International universities in Australia have years of experience when it comes to collaborating with international universities. You will have no trouble starting a joint program with overseas universities here.
Another tip for starting a joint program with overseas universities is giving time. Be prepared to spend time planning the joint program. Also, keep in mind that all overseas programs take time to succeed and be well-known enough for students to come in. Your ideal student count may take 1 or 2 years to manifest. People from different cultures tend to have different expectations on the timeline, so make sure all parties are clear with that as well. Manage expectations on the timing and be on the same page.
Finally, you need to understand the systems of all parties involved. What are the requirements for admission? How does the enrollment system work? What teaching platform is being used? It is best to connect to these systems right away and to know how to work through and around them.
These are just a few tips when starting a joint program with overseas universities. Work hard and all your labour will bear fruit. Good luck!
