Who We Are

Sydney Met is registered with the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA) as a higher education provider. Sydney Met offers TEQSA-accredited undergraduate courses: the Bachelor of Business (Entrepreneurship), the Bachelor of Information Technology (BIT), and the Bachelor of Social Work (BSW). It also offers two Undergraduate Certificates: Undergraduate Certificate in IT and Undergraduate Certificate in Business. These courses are offered within the terms of the Australian Qualifications Framework. Sydney Met is also listed on the Commonwealth Register of Institutions and Courses for Overseas Students (CRICOS) (Provider Code 03906M) which allows it to enrol international students who have been granted student visas to study in Australia.

The Sydney Met's vision emerged and evolved from the experiences, hope and dreams of people living in Australia’s multicultural society. Its founders were academics and professionals of diverse cultural heritage who experienced educational disadvantages first hand and understood the true value of education to transform careers and lives. Their active and sustained personal and professional engagements within the Australian educational landscape over many years have provided a robust foundation of experience, on which Sydney Met is built.

The main differentiator between other providers and Sydney Met is the niche focus of Sydney Met on socially responsible, culturally engaged and high quality education.

Sydney Met accepts the challenge of learning and discovery in the intercultural context, of striving for excellence, and of fostering creativity. Our students come from different walks of life, bringing with them many cultures, experiences and passions. We appreciate and embrace diversity as we help you to nurture your drive for excelling and growing a deep understanding of the world and your place in it. Choosing to undertake an undergraduate degree at Sydney Met will provide you with a solid foundation for your personal and professional life. Your talents will be fostered as you are challenged to maximise your potential. Small class sizes and interaction with our supportive and vibrant community provide not only an strong network of learners and professionals but also life-long friendships. Both in and out of the classroom, we trust you will develop your character as well as your mind and explore and deepen your knowledge and understanding so that you are able to engage thoughtfully and sustainably in your vocation and in your community.

Sydney Met has a campus in the Sydney CBD, New South Wales, Australia. The campus building is centrally located to public transport, shopping centres, parks, libraries and more.
