CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF PARTNERSHIP
On behalf of the University of Adelaide, it is my great pleasure to commemorate 20 years of partnership between our fine institutions.
Together, we have played a transformative part in the lives of the students who come to Adelaide and, more recently, Melbourne from all over the globe to experience the world-class education we provide. Our teams have provided a supportive transition for those students in need of an alternate pathway to achieve the University’s entry requirements.
Kaplan’s expertise in providing comprehensive student support services, including language preparation and cultural integration, fosters a nurturing environment, enabling students to focus on their studies, personal growth and wellbeing.
Students can choose from an array of disciplines, including arts, sciences, business and engineering, thereby tailoring their education to their individual interests and career aspirations. This diverse academic portfolio enriches students intellectually and equips them with the skills and knowledge demanded in a dynamic job market.
This partnership has paved the way for students to excel academically, professionally, and personally in a rapidly changing world. Together, we have positively changed lives, and can be mutually proud as our graduates make history in the global community.

KARNKANTHI INDIGENOUS EDUCATION PROGRAM
Kaplan offers Scholarships within the Karnkanthi Indigenous Education program.
Kaplan Higher Education and Kaplan Business School recently signed an agreement with the University of Adelaide’s Wirltu Yarlu Aboriginal Education unit to offer scholarships to Indigenous and Torres Strait Islander students across Australia in the Karnkanthi Indigenous Education program.

The program gives them access to:
