TAYLOR’S University has formalised its partnership with Queensland University of Technology (QUT) with the signing of the International Dual Award Agreement.

The agreement was signed by Taylor’s University deputy vice-chancellor Prof Dr Pradeep Nair and QUT deputy vice-chancellor (International & Development) Prof Scott Sheppard.

It was witnessed by Taylor’s University vice-chancellor and president Prof Michael Driscoll and Australian High Commission Counsellor (Education & Science) Karen Welsh.

“The agreement will increase the options for international studies for students at Taylor’s University, specifically Taylor’s Business School.

“It will pave the way for an international Dual Award partnership between Taylor’s and QUT for selected degrees offered at Taylor’s Business School,” said Prof Driscoll.

Taylor’s students who successfully transferred and completed their final year at QUT Business School will graduate with a degree from both universities,” he said.

He added that an opportunity to work with QUT is timely and will complement Taylor’s University’s effort in increasing internationalisation.

Taylor’s Business School dean Dr Vinitha Guptan said: “Taylor’s Business School degree programmes are tailor-made to suit the students’ different needs by offering them the flexibility to choose how they wish to maximise their time at Taylor’s.”

“The benefits of spending some time abroad are immense - from personal development to intercultural immersion, global exposure and gaining important soft skills that are highly sought after by employers,” she added.

“Similar to QUT Business School, Taylor’s Business School is known for its real-world learning, and its strong connections with industry leaders.

“Our programmes provide students with the latest insight into the trends and issues affecting current business practices,” said Dr Vinitha.

This partnership, she added, will go a long way in ensuring that its students are given the opportunity to learn from the best of both worlds.
