King's Own Institute

Introduction

King’s Own Institute is a tertiary level institution located in central Sydney, Australia and offering high quality accredited degree courses in Accounting, Business, and TESOL (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages).

Named after a regiment of the British army with which the CEO & 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.

This school offers programs in:
  • English

Practical Information

KOI operates on a Semester – based Trimester system

KOI operates on a semester based trimester system, allowing students to complete a three year bachelor degree in two years if no trimester breaks are taken. If trimester breaks are taken, a degree cannot be completed in the minimum time.

It is compulsory for students to complete two consecutive trimesters in their first year of study. After two consecutive trimesters of study, students may apply to take trimester breaks. Approval of a trimester break is not automatic, and is dependent on academic process. Students who wish to apply for a trimester break must do so in writing, before the end of week 10 of the trimester before they wish to take a break.
