The Australian Trade and Investment Commission (Austrade) contracted Successful Graduate to develop several bespoke microcredentials for Study Australia. These microcredentials support the acquisition of international students to Australia with the reopening of its borders. They are officially recognised by the Australian Government.
Study Australia is the arm of the Australian Government that is responsible for marketing Australia as a student destination. Our microcredentials have been launched as part of the Study Australia Digital Education Hub, and form important elements of the Study Australia Employability Hub strategy.
These microcredentials were free of charge to all international students: graduates, current and prospective; onshore and offshore. Upon completion, students will receive a digital certificate that can be shared with professional networks, such as LinkedIn and potential employers.
This new suite of microcredentials, alongside a growing range of other digital resources and services, were designed to support ongoing engagement with Australia’s global student community and to add value to an Australian qualification, enhance the student experience, and facilitate work-and-study and graduate outcomes.
This project supported the reopening of Australia’s borders at the end of the COVID pandemic, and was completed in December 2022.
Bespoke courses built with the client.
Materials for this platform were largely written from a blank sheet of paper, meeting the needs of the client during changing circumstances.
The platform was prepared by Successful Graduate as a subdomain of the official Study Australia government website.
We were also been contracted to build a second Austrade site to support Study Australia in China. Our video materials for this site were translated with Simplified Chinese subtitles.
