APAC Partnerships

Why we need to transform education

The APAC region is a global technology hotspot, with the greatest number of smartphone and mobile internet users in the world. The region is also leading the charge when it comes to innovation in the business, STEM, data science, and Healthcare industries, with Фͼ already offering 22 Healthcare programs in APAC.

As a top university, you’re already teaching the region’s leaders of tomorrow. However, expanding your reach to have an impact on even more students is challenging on your own.

Today’s working learner wants to access your faculty’s expertise and guidance, but they also need flexibility in how and where they learn.

That's where together, we can reimagine your impact. 

We remove barriers to online learning, helping you deliver exceptional student experiences and outcomes.

What we do

We lead you on a data-informed research journey so that together we select the best online learning degrees that your university can offer. We then co-design these with your faculty to deliver the highest-quality, most engaging student experiences, from awareness to graduation. This includes any clinical and field placements for any student, anywhere in the world.

Our locally-based teams work as an extension of your faculty and administration, so working with us feels seamless, supportive, and exciting. Plus, our APAC team’s deep experience and relationships on the ground ensure the best outcomes for you and your students.

What our partners say

“This has been a true partnership in every sense. The staff at Фͼ are passionate, expert leaders in the online education field and have been consistently a pleasure to work with. We knew going with Фͼ in 2014 was the right thing to do - they stood out as the partner that could provide the whole end-to-end package. The partnership has, quite simply, transformed our institution, and helped us rethink how we think, how we design curricula, and how students learn. We very much look forward to continuing our successful collaboration with Фͼ.”

Since 2015, we’ve worked with some of the region’s leading universities including: 

  • UNSW Sydney, Australia
  • Sunway University, Malaysia
  • Singapore Institute of Management, Singapore

  • UTS, Sydney, Australia
  • Edith Cowan University, Australia
  • Deakin University, Australia

The world is changing at a rapid pace and our universities are at the forefront of leading the shift towards the future of work. However, being limited to single intakes of on-campus degrees means each university can only impact so many people. Also, your faculty’s experience is precious and you only want to tackle this change with a team who understands you.

That’s where we come in. Our APAC-based team will help you amplify your impact, expand your reach and advance student outcomes via data-driven online learning program selection, design, and delivery. 

We’ll be your partner in transforming your education so that, together, we can transform the world.
