  • What are the experts saying about Global Game Changers?

    “The Global Game Changers program is recognising that education needs to be highly practical, with a strong theoretical rigour behind it as well. So you’re taking the very best of the traditional University model and extending it. You’re taking the very best of the startup, entrepreneurial model and combining it with that academic rigour as well.”
    Simon Spencer, CEO, Edgelabs

    “As someone who has interviewed and recruited thousands of uni grads, I can see how Global Game Changer’s degrees are addressing the skills gap from more traditional or old-school degrees which have not caught up to the world we live in today.” Sacha Koffman, Director Upskill Learning and former Graduate Recruitment Specialist (PwC, ANZ)

    “What we’re doing here is trying to be at the cutting edge, to try to create courses that will help young people be ready and capable to cope with this era of change. We are focused on launching Global Game Changers and to study it in a way that takes you to the parts of the world that can open your eyes to what this era of change is going to be about.”

    “We’re preparing students for jobs tomorrow that are not even invented yet. So what we need to do is to have students that can learn and re-learn. This is a very open degree that translates into any industry.”
    Carol Fisher, Careers Coordinator, Marymede Catholic College

    “60% of graduate jobs will be profoundly disrupted by new technology, so it’s not about having a fixed set of skills. It’s about being adaptable, innovative and entrepreneurial in the face of change.”
    The Hon. Julia Gillard, Former Prime Minister, Ducere Global Leaders Faculty

    “What employers are really looking for to distinguish between applicants is what are the experiences and skills one has that others don’t. Traditional courses are not providing the opportunities for students to develop those essential skills. Global Game Changers recognises an area that’s lacking in traditional education.”
    Melinda Williams, Careers Advisor, Parade College

    “Global Game Changers creates an opportunity for young people that are really passionate about something to really connect their passion with a learning opportunity.”

    “If we were looking for interns who were from some other university versus from Global Game Changers (degrees), I would know that somebody who had gone through GGC had learned how to work as a team and approach problem solving. I would know they would be able to easily slot into our environment without having to have a huge amount of that kind of base level training.”

  • What are the parents saying about Global Game Changers?

    “I like that it’s skill based. I like that it’s broad. I like that they do team work and have the opportunity to go to Asia and Silicon Valley.
    Cherrie, Parent

    “More and more companies are looking for people with agility, that can problem solve and work on projects, rather than have just specific or irrelevant knowledge.”
    Martyn, Parent

    “It’s much harder to find employment after graduating nowadays, so getting the right degree that can give you flexibility instead of pushing you down one particular angle is very important.
    Martyn, Parent

    “You don’t go to the workplace and have exams, it doesn’t work that way. If you put together projects, when you finish university you’re going to be better off because you’ve got something to show your employers that others don’t.”
