ANU to Use Specialist Company to Prepare Students for University
The Australian National University (ANU) has partnered with company Study Group to prepare students for university. The Australian newspaper reported the sale of "ANU College" to Study Group on 25 November 2013. The College offers two programs to help students meet university requirements. Courses are offered in Academic English, Computer Applications and six academic content subjects. This is primarily intended for international students. Courses are offered on the ANU campus in Canberra. However, I suggest that this form of preparation could be equally effectively be carried out on-line. Such courses would benefit domestic as well as international students. Recently I completed a short on-line familiarization course before commencing some students at a university in North America.
