Education services company Navitas has extended its reach into Sydney’s western suburbs, after signing a 50:50 joint venture agreement with the University of Western Sydney to establish a pathway college for international students.

Each party has committed to invest up to $2.5 million in the new venture, to be known as UWS International College.

Navitas group chief executive Rod Jones said this was the first time the company had established an incorporated joint venture with one of its university partners.

The college will be governed by a board of directors with equal Navitas and UWS representation.

It will operate from the university’s Parramatta campus.

The collage will commence teaching international students in October this year; students who complete the college program will be eligible to continue their studies in degree courses at UWS.

The new college will be aligned with the university’s existing UWS College, which already provides pathway programs and in future will focus on domestic students.
