We’re all for flexibility and our stackable learning approach delivers. If you’ve got a master’s degree in sight, with academyEX you can create your pathway there. Pick from a number of micro-credentials and postgraduate certificates to tailor your knowledge and skills in specialised areas and top it off with a real-world project to gain a master’s degree that recognises your capabilities, your expertise and delivers outcomes you can use.

Planet icon - why we do it block


It is important for everyone, regardless of their chosen industry, to be responsible for their actions and response to climate change. At academyEX we believe that by everyone taking active steps to reduce their impact on the environment, we can not only help mitigate the effects of climate change, but also set a positive example for others to follow.

Careers purpose


At academyEX our collective purpose is to create impactful futures. We recognise to do this every candidate we hire must have their own motivation for creating positive impact. We look for people who support others to thrive and those who seek to make a positive contribution in the lives of others. Through building a collective of change makers we believe that purpose and work can be highly aligned.
