“The management of MSA was kept abreast of the planned activity and confirms that normal campus operations‚ including classes‚ were not affected.”
It added that the university management will continue “to explain what the change in ownership means”.
“Students have been given the assurance that there would be no changes to the qualifications they registered for.”
MSA has roots in Australia and is a joint venture between Monash University and Laureate Education. It has room for 6‚500 students and will slot in with Advtech’s existing tertiary brands‚ like Varsity College‚ Rosebank College and Vega.
Demand for private tertiary education offerings has increased in recent years as learners battle to qualify for limited places at traditional universities‚ look for more affordable options or just prefer to pursue specialised‚ non-university training courses.
