King’s Own Institute (KOI) is a leading private institution of higher education located in central Sydney, Australia and offering high quality accredited diploma, undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Accounting, Business, Management, Information Technology (IT) and postgraduate courses in TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).
Named after a regiment of the British army with which the CEO and Dean was associated as an exchange officer, King’s Own Institute adopts a similar spirit and values with traditions and an established reputation for its recognised development of successful leaders.
Our initials KOI have a second meaning, as the word “koi” in some Asian languages is a wild carp. The koi is energetic and can swim upstream against the current. According to legend if a koi succeeded in climbing the falls at a point called Dragon Gate on the Yellow River it would be transformed into a dragon. This demonstrates perseverance in adversity and strength of purpose. Because of its strength and determination to overcome obstacles, the koi represents courage and the ability to attain high goals.
Similarly, King’s Own Institute (KOI) aims to be a recognised leader as an education provider famous for nurturing our students into successful careers. The experience of the higher education journey can be as important as the qualification itself.
Here at King’s Own Institute, we want the career-shaping experience to be fruitful, memorable and enjoyable.
Where can I find more information about King’s Own Institute?
For many students, this is the first time they are leaving home and living overseas independently. At KOI, we understand this can be a very big step for both students and parents. Our staff is available to assist with information regarding living in Sydney prior to arrival. Upon accepting the offer to study at KOI, students will be sent a pre-departure guide, information regarding orientation and enrolment. During orientation, all new students will receive information regarding the school, staff, services and assistance available to our students. It is therefore vital that students attend orientation.
