Our Story.

Understand where we’ve come from and be excited by where we’re going.

Welcome to ASTRA.

As one of Australia’s most pioneering proponents of technology-enabled learning, our Institute of Higher Education is here to provide a premium, forward-thinking environment for every student.

Our History

ASTRA was founded with the intention of becoming an innovative learning force on a national and international stage. By equipping our students with unique academic and technical skills which comprehensively join the dots between theory and practice, we’re working to facilitate a winning union between the business leaders and technologies of the future.

Our Vision

Ultimately, our vision is to foster a reputation for excellence in student-centric, highly engaging and diversified tertiary experiences, that empower students to operate and excel in and around rapidly evolving business environments. We consider truly transformative higher education to be that which can successfully combine traditional degree offerings with the emerging fields of artificial intelligence, machine learning, social media, virtual reality and augmented reality. It’s why ASTRA guarantees graduates the learning experiences they’ll need to harness the potential of emerging technologies throughout their careers.

“Our pursuit of academic excellence and investment in the growth and development of enquiring minds will provide opportunities for students to realise their intellectual and professional potentials, and to make impactful, lifelong contributions to their communities.”
