Navitas expands Asian offices  

May 15, 2013

Global education provider Navitas has launched a new regional office in Jakarta, Indonesia, and expanded its office in Hong Kong.

Tony Cullen, Navitas Executive General Manager – Marketing and Sales, University Programs, at the official opening of the Navitas Hong Kong Regional Office earlier this month.

The new Indonesian base was established to provide in-country support to the Navitas agent network in the country. A company statement said, “Navitas will, through the new office, be in a stronger position to service its agent network across all key cities, both large and small.” The office will be a resource for partners, providing counselling, briefing and first-hand information.

At a launch event, attended by Navitas staff, Navitas University partners, and representatives from the Australian Embassy, USA Embassy and the British Council, Tony Cullen, Navitas Executive General Manager – Marketing and Sales, University Programs, said the company’s history with the country stemmed back to 1994 when the first Indonesian student was recruited.

“Given its close proximity, Indonesians have long favoured Australia as a study destination,” said Cullen. “Our most popular university partner colleges for Indonesian students are Curtin College, SIBT and MIBT, with Perth, Sydney and Melbourne the most favoured cities.”

Meanwhile, the regional office in Hong Kong has been extended to provide more overall local resources and services, and was officially opened last week in a ceremony with key Navitas staff, media and representatives from various government organisations in attendance.

The Hong Kong office was established in 2008 to provide support to students, parents and agents and has recruited more than 4,000 students to study within the Navitas network.

Cullen said the move would hold Navitas in a stronger position. “The expansion also demonstrates long-term commitment to our students and their parents. We can now provide not just application assistance, but also follow-up on students’ study life in our colleges.”
