Australian in character and international in perspective, the BROWNS curriculum has been built from the ground up to deliver industry relevant and globally focused content in a classroom rich with cultural immersion. Combine this with our world-class academic team, industry partnerships, and extensive global graduate network, our students are set up to hit the ground running. A global focus requires a new way of curriculum development. The organisation of the BROWNS curriculum content is based on the following BROWNS Advantage Principles:
- A blend of core units and elective units that best fit student needs and the needs of industry;
- To provide students with the knowledge and skills required to succeed in their chosen career;
- Ensure balance in the key course elements of oral communication skills, written communication skills, industry relevant skills, interpersonal and intercultural skills;
- Provide opportunities for learners to engage in research and observation tasks; and
- Make use of authentic materials as much as possible.
This approach was taken to ensure that the entirety of the course is of direct, personal relevance to each individual learner and their real world needs. To a large extent, materials have been custom designed using authentic texts, rather than taken or adapted from existing course books. Such an approach creates a highly stimulating, motivating and challenging environment and delivers powerful, memorable learning experiences to both learners and teachers.
