Creating the future of education

Solving the gap between employer requirements and graduate skills

Graduates graduating, with a future city in the background



Capture What Industry Needs

We start by engaging with a specific industry, on behalf of any higher education institution that produces graduates for that industry.  To understand what skills they need, we run industry workshops and we add large industry data points to build up a wiki-style document of industry skills requirements. We do this through an industry-governed Non-Profit Organisation and we make the outcome available as a free open education resource.


Help Higher Education Institutions Align

We offer specialised services to help higher education institutions align with industry requirements. These services include (1) education consulting on industry alignment and graduate employability, (2) curriculum reviews and gap analysis, and (3) instructional design and curriculum development. 


Reward and Recognise HEI's for Aligning

Those Higher Education Institutions that align with these industry requirements can opt to submit their curricula for our "Industry-Aligned Curriculum" certification. This prestigious certification requires an annual update and assures students, parents, and employers that the specific curriculum is designed and delivered based on industry requirements.  This results in increased enrolment and higher industry absorption numbers.


Promote Aligned Curricula

All programs and institutions that earn the industry certification are promoted to our industry contribution partners as preferred graduate sources. We take care to connect industry partners with these institutions and encourage them to source graduates from these institutions, Qualifying institutions are featured on our industry-aligned curricula database and our social media channels.


Everything we do is focused on preparing students better for the world of work.

At Studium Alliance, we have assembled the best team of specialists, collaborators, and alliance partners. Some of the specialised services we offer are featured below...
