Dear IDP China,
I am writing to you as a valued educational partner to update you on some exciting developments within The University of Sydney Business School. Also to advise you of planned changes to admission standards for our postgraduate coursework programs. The University of Sydney Business School is committed to developing graduates who have the deep knowledge and client-facing skills required to be world-class professionals and leaders in business and management.
Over the past decade, The University of Sydney Business School has consolidated its reputation as a centre of innovation in business and management edUCation. Our undergraduate, graduate and executive programmes attract creative thinkers, collaborative problem-solvers, and current and future leaders. As part of one of the world's most prestigious research universities the Business School also makes a powerful contribution to the development of new knowledge directly applicable to business and management practice in the Asia Pacific region and the world.
Our new leadership team, headed by our Dean, Professor Greg Whitwell, is currently planning a major round of innovation in edUCational practice, including greater emphasis on technology-enabled learning, work-integrated learning and opportunities for students to develop both client-facing and entrepreneurial skills.
In conjunction with this, we will continue building our reputation for edUCational excellence by attracting the best and brightest students from around the world. As part of this process we will be making changes to the admissions criteria for a range of programs to ensure that this progression is achieved. This will mean some changes to the admissions criteria for some of the programs we offer to international students.
With respect to students holding qualifications from China, and effective from Semester 1 2016, we will be rAISing our admission standards for University of Sydney Business School postgraduate coursework programs as follows:
• GPA minima for direct Master’s entry will increase by three percentage points, with the GPA minimum for a 211 qualification to increase to 78% (from 75%) and that for a non-211 qualification to increase to 83% (from 80%).
• GPA minima for Graduate Diploma entry will increase by five percentage points, with the GPA for a 211 qualification to increase to 75% (from 70%) and that for a non-211 qualification to increase to 80% (from 75%).
The changes will be in effect for all Applications received from 17th February 2015.
These changes will further reinforce our School’s strong international reputation and ensure that The University of Sydney continues to offer an edUCational experience that attracts the very best students. The higher admission standards will also help us to remain the primary choice for your students, their families and the world of business that relies on us providing graduates of outstanding quality.
To support you in managing these changes and to demonstrate how the Business School and University can support you in the changing world of international edUCation we will be arranging a series of visits and events for this February to outline our educational vision and discuss how we believe are partnership can be nurtured. We look forward to meeting you and your team of counsellors and to planning a successful future together.
Professor John Shields
