For universities putting the student experience first

Dear delegates,

When it comes to critical learning services, like 24/7 academic support, you aren’t buying a product. You're investing in student outcomes. We know that the quality of student support is non-negotiable, and that consistent, reliable, personal attention is essential for improving confidence and academic outcomes. ‘Personal’ means genuinely helping each and every student equally, with just-in-time learning and core skills support. That’s Studiosity. We believe return on investment must be measured, so 24/7 support services must be accountable for real impact. We also understand education is a "long game." It takes focus, dedication and commitment. That’s our constant, sole mission at Studiosity: To help you support all your students, at scale. For universities that put students first, there’s only one choice.

Best wishes,
Jack Goodman
Founder, Studiosity

The Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) has a vision to enhance Australia’s capability in nuclear science and engineering by facilitating world-class research and education.

 AINSE was originally established in 1958 to provide a mechanism for access to the facilities at Lucas Heights by universities and other tertiary institutions and to provide a focus for cooperation in the nuclear scientific and engineering fields. It has a specific mandate to arrange for the training of scientific researchers and the award of scientific research studentships in matters associated with nuclear science and engineering.

Today nuclear science at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) is devoted to supporting activities and research in a wide range of disciplines. These have applications in advanced technology, manufacturing, mining, agriculture, medicine and environmental protection. All are of vital importance to Australia's future.

 AINSE plays a crucial role in providing universities with connections to the expertise at ANSTO which cannot be found elsewhere in Australia. This collaboration with these major scientific facilities encourages a national cooperative research effort. 

We’re an Australian management consulting firm with a focus on strategy, people and performance.

We bring a structured, systematic approach to help universities solve their most difficult business problems, offering expertise in Strategic Planning, Performance Evaluation, Policy Analysis and Design, Strategic Communications and Enterprise Bargaining.

We take the view that the best solutions are only possible if an organisation’s people know what they need to do, how they’re going to do it and why. 

Few people understand the higher education sector like we do. Since 2016, we’ve worked with more than 15 Australian universities on a diverse range of projects to help them bring about positive change.
