Navitas joins COPHE

Navitas, one of the world’s leading education providers, has joined the membership of the Council of Private Higher Education (COPHE).

IHEA is delighted to announce that Navitas has joined our organisation. IHEA represents the very best independent higher education providers in Australia, and we welcome Navitas to IHEA membership.

Navitas is a great Australian company with a reputation for providing high-quality education to 70,000 students around the world. Navitas partners with Australian universities to provide a range of programs and helps students to meet their educational goals and aspirations.

Navitas’s membership of IHEA brings 12 registered and accredited independent higher education providers and more than 26,000 Australian domestic and international students into the IHEA portfolio.

In May 2018, Minister Birmingham recognised IHEA membership as a badge of quality. IHEA members are committed to providing students with lifelong opportunities and career success. Navitas shares this passion and is welcomed to IHEA’s growing membership.

We welcome the opportunity to join IHEA alongside other independent higher education providers which, like Navitas, are transforming the lives of their learners every day.
