Asia Pacific International College (APIC)
Asia Pacific International College (APIC) is a dynamic Australian Higher Education Institution offering undergraduate and postgraduate degree courses at two campuses in Australia. APIC's courses are accredited by the Tertiary Education Quality and Standards Agency (TEQSA), Australia's independent national quality assurance and regulatory agency for higher education.
APIC's campuses are situated in Australia's leading cities of Sydney and Melbourne. Both cities are a wonderfully eclectic mix of cultures, people and past times. You will never be short of places to explore and things to do in Sydney and Melbourne. Sydney is the financial capital of Australia with the Australian Stock Exchange located not far from the Sydney campus along with many of Australia's largest accounting, auditing, and consulting organisations. Our Sydney campus is conveniently located in the western suburb of Sydney at Fitzwilliam Street, Parramatta. The campus is located opposite to Parramatta station next to the library. We are very well connected by the bus and soon to be completed light rail.
Melbourne is Australia's cultural capital and considered to be one of the most liveable cities in Australia. Like Sydney, it is home to thousands of international students and welcomes many more each year. Our Melbourne campus is located on Lonsdale St in the middle of Melbourne's bustling Central Business District. Within a short walking distance can be found Flinders St Station and Federation Square.
